Go Back Command Does Not Work on Newly Opened Document

PSS ID Number: Q100951 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1


The “User’s Guide” for Word versions 5.0 and 5.1 incorrectly states on pages 64 and 81 that the Go Back command can be used to locate the last three editing positions as soon as a saved document is opened. The manual further incorrectly states that Word stores the last three editing locations with the document.

The Go Back command, invoked by pressing COMMAND+OPTION+Z or pressing 0 on the numeric keypad (with NUM LOCK turned off), will find the last three editing locations in a document only when three editing locations have been used during the current Word session. On a newly opened document, Word remembers only the last editing position of the insertion point.

Saving a document does not affect the ability of Word to go back to the last three editing positions. However, the three positions are not stored with the document once it is closed.

The Word 4.0 reference manual makes no mention of recently opened saved documents.
