moderated Re: Setting Place Marker in Word not Workingq

Ann, I use a placemarker all the time in Word. The limitation I've found is that I can't set it at the end of a selection and work backwards, which I can on webpages. Also, I use only temporary placemarkers in Word. It sounds like permanent ones won't work, but it's never even occurred to me to use them in Word. I have permanent ones all over the Internet!

You need to use bookmarks in Word. Placemarkers only work on the internet.

the sentence to mark.
