Windows 7: Word 2003 formating questions

Word 2003 formating questions

#1. I have been writing a Family History book for years. What is holding me up is Word 2003 . I just get a section done - text and images, and the next time I go back to it, the images or the captions have moved. See snap shot.

#2 A weird happening with "Markup".
Often when I want print preview to look at multiple views, the page with no Markup checked will open in MU mode even though there are no notes or reviewing marks in the book. I have tried everything to get the MU to behave properly. I spend all my time redoing work I have done before.

I have wondered if my Word 2003 is corrupted but I don't know how to check and I don't want to have a big learning curve to buy a new program. (I am advanced in years).

If your file extension is .doc they should stay. If you are using a .txt extension then that is the reason.

My extensions are .doc
I save often but they just seem to take a walk, sometimes just a few spaces, sometimes more.e

Word 2010 is opening my word 2003 attachments
I normally use Word 2003 for documents, although I use Outlook 2010. This morning I opened a Word 2010 document and after quite a while of some sort of an installation, I was able to open the Word 2010 document. I did not think too much of it, except that later I was sending an e-mail and attached...

Word 2003 CUSTOM.DIC in W7 Pro
Hi, Within Word 2003 the CUSTOM.DIC is in a fixed and seemingly unchangable path, so other software can reliably find it. The path cannot be created so even though I have the data availble in back up I cannot get to it in W7. How is this resolved? If Word 2010 is better than Word...
