Unless we all use the same version of Word this feature fails. Get your Office to cough up the IT staffer to bring your machine to the same versions as the office.
Another time I wiped out a coworker with same complaint with a block they couldn't edit. What they didn't notice is I had created a graphic that looked just like text. The reason I did that was to prevent editing of that passage. They didn't speak to me for weeks for being "so devious."
This is a bizarre problem. I have to redline a document sent to my office via e-mail, using MS Word. I was doing fine until one paragraph did not allow me to enter any characters at all. In fact, the cursor did not even show up on the screen.
I copied the paragraph and pasted it into a blank document but even in this new document, I was not able to type into the paragraph.
I am not sure which version of Word I use at work, but it is on Windows XP Professional.
Thank you to anyone who has an idea of what this problem is and how to correct it.
