Re: compatability mode

Hi Jed,
Can you select all the text, copy it to the clipboard,  & paste it into a text file, or a new Word document?  If the document isn't of some private nature, send it to me off list, & I'll see if I can extract the contents from it, & send it back to you.
Take care.

Something is major wrong ehre guys.  I finaly got word to shut down.
Then i clicked on the file again, but i can see no text.  Is there any
way to get around this?  It's really annoying.  I've already wasted 45
minutes on this.  All i wanna do is read this document.  Any ideas on
what to do?  When i do control home, it just says top of file.  It
almost sounds like something is blocking jfw from reading it.  Any ideas?
