Word 5.00: Characters Have Wrong Symbols in CHARTEST.DOC
PSS ID Number: Q47118 Article last modified on 11-02-1994
The CHARTEST.DOC file on the Utilities 2 disk incorrectly gives ASCII character 195 the symbol for character 239 and incorrectly gives character 197 the symbol for character 241.
To correct this problem, do the following:
- Load the CHARTEST.DOC file into Word 5.00.
- Search for 195.
- Press END to go to the end of the line.
- Press BACKSPACE to delete the character.
5 Hold down the ALT key and type 195 on the numeric keypad.
Repeat Steps 2-5, substituting 197 for 195.
Save the document.
The CHARTEST.DOC file is used by the supplied Character_Test.Mac macro found in the MACRO.GLY file. This macro loads the CHARTEST.DOC file and asks if you want a printout of the extended characters for all fonts in the current printer driver.
