    Ms bottom line makes them think shoddy documentation is the best way to make money.
    You might also try to extrapolate from older Help documentation.

    Change your password, and/or create a new account, and be more careful about your account information.

    It sucks, but it works by trying to convert the text and scavenging any images and jambing them into a .docx file.
    Can you be more specific?

    Stupid Ms says always, "Open Word, browse to your file and then open it.)
    I say, "Just browse to your file and open it." That way you always know where it is.
    This time, they are right. Open Word, [File], [Open], and hope that it is still pointing at the desired directory.
    If not, open your user directory in Window Explorer, and type some of the filename or distinctive file content into the search field.

    Already available several ways. One way is: right-click the status bar at the bottom of the Word window (near the page#, ... zoom scale) and turn on the word-count. From then on, you click the word-count to show some file or selection char.counts.

    Anyone can snap an image of the screen ([PrtScr]) or the current window([Alt]+[PrtScr], paste it ([Ctrl]+v) into a picture file(.jpg,.bmp, ...) for trimming by Paint (or other image editor), or/and paste it wherever you like (that takes image info).

    Use the vertical scroll bar or the keyboard navigation keys.
    The right mouse button on a PC allows you to 'point to a speed of rise or fall' by putting a 'Zero' point on the screen. Maybe Mac has that function using the control buttons.

    Since '97, Help has been an incomplete & incompetent afterthought.
    If the page numbers were included in the header or footer, double click it and edit it for all pages at once.
    If it is foolishly edited into each page of text, hold onto your timecard ;)
    You might be able to Find&Replace the #page# function code, if that was used, or you might be able to search for surrounding ^p ^l spaces, or other characters like "p." to get close to each page # and do only some of the removals by hand.

    I believe I would send both files if they are not redundant.
    Is there some reason opening both files and using cut and paste does not work?
    I do it occasionally, but it doesn't look very good. Usually, I cut from my pptx and paste into a docx to abstract the powerpoint.

    See 'Help as an afterthought'.

    Somewhere, it said that Ms Office 2013 was the last off-line usable Help function. (I hope you can find it.)

    I suspect they no longer develop Help while they are writing the software; therefore the Help function is only an after thought, and will always be incomplete and often incompetent. It used to be that you could annotate the help documentation, so that you (and your employees) only had to learn how to do something new once, and write it in for everyone else to find.
    Now, you must find and search the burgeoning forums for related issues or similar complaints, and submit another straw to the pile.

    If the location and timestamp of each object involved is included in the message, that will reduce the ambiguity of the situation. Obviously, if there are two or more edits occurring simultaneously, some kind of intelligent merge might be required.
    Google Handles this almost as well as I would like, by having only one shared copy, with each editor's insertion point identified and moving live, but it does not 'mark' the currently changed text for each editor so that editorial collisions are apparent to all participants.

    The better alternative to having a big blank window below your line of type at the top of the page, is to not make your window so tall. Right now, the Word window I am typing into, is about 5 inches tall, and at the top of my screen. There is no visual information lost, because I have simply moved the bottom border of my Word window, up to a comfortable height, about 5 inches below the top of the window, so there is room for my ribbon when it pops down from the toolbar for use. When I wish to see a whole tall page, I just [full-screen], dbl-clk, or [drag-up] the title-bar, to toggle between a few focus lines only at the top of my display, and the current page display window from top to bottom of the screen,
    This does not address the Word GUI failure of the ribbon hiding my ruler and currently typed text; which is a problem whenever you type at the top of the Word window, such as with a new empty Word file.
    PS: MsOffice 2016, W10P, Dark (eye-saving) theme
