Text in Summary Info Fields Missing

PSS ID Number: Q106542 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 5.00 5.10 MACINTOSH kbusage buglist5.10 fixlist6.00

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

SYMPTOMS

When you choose Summary Info from the File menu, text entered in one of the field boxes (Subject, for example) may display incompletely. The missing text will appear to be replaced with blank spaces. This problem can occur in any of the Summary Info fields except Title.

CAUSE

Text extends past the right edge of a field’s text box. When you reopen the Summary Info dialog box, text on or near the right edge of a field’s text box is incorrectly drawn on the screen, so that some of the text appears to be missing.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with Word for the Macintosh. This problem was corrected in version 6.0 of Word for the Macintosh

RESOLUTION

To view all the text in a field, click in the beginning of the field’s text box, and type a space. The field’s text will correctly redraw and you can delete the newly added character. This redraw problem occurs each time you choose Summary Info from the File menu.
