PowerPoint – will not proceed to next slide

Leave a comment

Found out today that if the PowerPoint is set to Kiosk mode (In Office 2010 buried in Slide Show > Set up slide show > Show slide type) then it will only display the first slide and clicking (or using arrows) to go to the next slide doesn't work

Hidden text in Word 2007 and password protecting

Leave a comment

Just a couple of Word things that I need when preparing examination papers!!

How do you remove Hidden Text from a Word Document?

Working with a copy of the document (just in case!!)

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Inspect document > [Inspect]
  • You will see the Hidden  Text option and a button [Remove All]

How do you add a password to your document?

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Encrypt document and enter your password
  • then re-enter it to make sure.

Warning – it is pretty well impossible to recover the document if you forget the password!!

How do you remove a password from a file?

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Encrypt document and delete your password
