Wrong template for my emails...?

Wrong template for my emails...?

Post by Kennet » Sun, 21 Aug 2005 02:26:54



Howdy,

I run OL2000 SP3 with Win2000 SP4...

This is a strange one (at least for me.)

Here's my situation:

I use Word as my email editor (primarily because of the
availability of Autotext entries). Many of the Autotext
entries are used both when I am running Outlook, but also
when I am using Word itself. When they are used with both of
the programs, they have the same text, but different
formatting.

The problem is that when I set up an Autotext entry while
running Outlook, its formatting also appears when I run Word
alone.

When I set up an Autotext entry when running Word alone, the
formatting appears when I launch Outlook and attempt to
create a new email message.

It would appear that both Word Standalone, and Word as Email
Editor are using the same template.

Of course I an not certain that I have this diagnosed
properly, but in any case, would welcome suggestions about
solving this problem.

Sincere thanks,
--
Kenneth

Hi Kenneth

If you click the button on the toolbar, you can see a sign for each
end-of-paragraph marker. End-of-paragraph markers store information about
the style of the paragraph and other bits of formatting.

If you create an AutoText that includes the paragraph marker, the AutoText
includes the style and formatting information. If you create an AutoText
without including the paragraph marker, that style information is not
stored.

So, maybe try creating an AutoText by selecting just the text, and not the
sign.

Hope this helps.

I think you are right about the template, unless you are using stationery.

Hi Shauna,

I will experiment with your suggestion further (I am not at
the problem machine right now), and thank you,

Hi Joe,

I am not at that system right now, but would ask that you
say a bit more... What if I am using stationary?

Thanks,

Hi again all,

This formatting problem is still unsolved, but I may have a
bit more insight into the difficulty...

Several of our machines have Word installed, and all point
to the same Normal.dot.

I am working right now on a system that has Word, and
Outlook and when I am in Outlook, I see the formatting
difficulty that I have described: Autotext entries appear in
the Word version of their format rather than the Outlook
version of their format.

Now, this machine is using its own copy of Word, and its own
copy of Outlook, so it would seem unlikely that they were
the cause. All share Normal.dot however, and that leads me
to believe that the problem is there.

Would that make sense diagnostically, or might there be some
other common link that I am missing.

Thanks for your thoughts,
