here's a word vba macro that will number the images for you

[copy or print]
Sub captions()
Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.Count
    If ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.Item(i).Type = wdInlineShapePicture Then
        ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(i).Select
        Selection.InsertCaption Label:="Figure", Title:=" - This is image #" & i, Position:=wdCaptionPositionBelow
    End If
Next i
End Sub

google is your friend...

Idea: What about a way to disable/hide replace and size the find and the textarea accordingly if all you want to do is build regex in your program for use elsewhere?

were you experimenting with the program when you wrote this? Grin Grin Grin

watch out if you're going to tweak the slides, if you introduce a height difference across the drawer they may be inclined to jam (depends on how much clearance you have on each side of course).

claim it as a character piece, and see how many people actually notice (I'm guessing not many).  If someone does it becomes a conversation piece (everyone wins!!!)

I still think making a new face for the drawer is the easiest and least risky option.  Once you start taking material away you can't put it back again if it's still not right (and then you've got 2 problems Grin)

OT - I am interested in the handwriting recognition feature, but after having watched a few review videos, there always seems to be a bit of a lag. You write a few words, then wait for them to be recognised. That's a bit like how dictation software works. I wonder how that would affect one's writing process, i.e. whether it would slow you down enough that you'd forget what you wanted to write? Anyone tried it for notetaking on the go or creative writing?

hmmm, I wonder what the buffer is like?  I've never used anything like this but I wonder can you write faster than it can read, and how far can you get ahead before it stops recognising your input, or skipping content to try and keep up?

make a new face for the top drawer?

your best bet with all these automation requests in office is to spend a little bit of time learning VBA.

It really isn't that hard and MS include a handy macro recorder to get you started

FYI I don't do any of the social media things (apparently you have to have 'friends') so I can't help you, but there are a few here who do so good luck!!
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Excuse The Dumb Question, but I'm Generally Curious on: June 09, 2015, 09:48:48 PM
plenty of coders here, but they can't help until you at least tell them specifically what you want to do  Cool

Wouldn't it be terribly insulting if you had a brain implant that connected it to the internet and your brain didn't meet the requirements to update to Win 10.

no...

why not just merge the folders then delete everything that's left?
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: why MS Word breaks format on: May 31, 2015, 09:47:42 PM
if you go into OPTIONS, and select ADVANCED, the second section deals with copy and paste options.

I'd suggest you set to either MERGE FORMATTING or KEEP TEXT ONLY

if we could only work out the file format it shouldn't be hard...

if only...
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Batch PDF printing on: May 18, 2015, 05:35:12 PM
the obvious answer here is VBA. 

what's not obvious is how often you need to do this and the variables involved, ie for the given sample (1 file, in 5 parts) it wouldn't be worth your while batching it.  And if the variables change each time then obviously the overhead is going to beat you every time

Puns, what puns? This may come as noose to you but according to the panel you made a slip.

you wood say that.  clearly you're not tongue tied
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Looking for a Sci-Fi short story about time travel on: May 12, 2015, 02:02:58 AM
There may have been 'rockets' or space travel, but 'garden of tubes' doesn't ring any bells.  It's been a long time and lots more books since I read it so you'll have to forgive me if I can't add much more
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Looking for a Sci-Fi short story about time travel on: May 12, 2015, 12:39:51 AM
sounds like something I've read also, but for the life of me I can't remember the title or the author (it was a good story though)

the plot though...

All the worlds land masses are covered by 'buildings'.  The hero (?) starts out as the lowest of the low living in the dark under the buildings.  He gets taken in and proves to be a genius, goes on to be hugely successful AND develops a means of traveling through time, or perhaps it was to parallel universes, i forget the detail.  Finally he is contacted by himself from another dimension (pick one) and is given a crucial piece of information.  In the end he dies, but his alternate self steps through and takes his place (nothing weird about that huh).  Story ends with all the buildings being torn down and people returning to live on the land...

does that sound familiar, or jog anyone's memory?

I'm surely no expert but this sounds more like a very old virus (if that's what it is)

to me the operation sounds very clumsy, more like something a script kiddy might produce

Virus writers have become far more sophisticated in what they're delivering and uninstalling/deleting a random somebodies files like this seems like a poor return on their effort

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What happens when a Kickstarter project fails to launch? on: May 07, 2015, 08:58:44 PM
interesting read, although it kind of ran out of substance

It started out well enough, but by the end I was starting to feel like one of those 'jilted' backers...
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Technology moving anxiety... on: May 04, 2015, 04:26:45 PM
Yes - it's like, "Oh, wait... I'm going to be without an Internet connection for **HOW LONG**???"

rather ironic considering what you just wrote here Grin Grin Grin

more detail needed, eg what criteria would you use to determine whether to add or replace

Did you know that the lug nuts on the passenger side of a 64 Dodge polara are left hand thread??

just so we all know that the issue of 'standards' was around long before software was commonplace Grin Grin Grin
