Copyright notice

by malcolm davis In reply to DOWNLOAD: Build a foundat ...

I noticed that the License is Copyright. Copyright ?2005 CNET Networks, Inc. All rights reserved.

I am very bothered by this because the template is almost (90%) copy of a template I?ve been using for years (since the mid-90). I?m not sure how you got a hold of my template, or that this is such common knowledge or format that it is not unique work. I would like it if you would pull the Copyright notice.

Either you got mine, or it is common knowledge, in either case too many similarities for it to be copyrightable work.

MS Word Version Issue?

by hans_vanmechelen In reply to word template crashed ?

What version of Word do you use and in which version is the document created?

Word documents created in a higher version than the one in which you use them (e.g. XP > 97) might get corrupt and make Word crash (unpredictably, e.g. when you try to print). Corruption risk increases when a lot of tables, styles, and new Word features are used... This behaviour can be avoided if the author avoids features of the new version (1) and saves the document as e.g. new version

FYI & FWIW: when opened in (my) Word 97, (apparently it doesn't crash immediately but) page 11 shows (overlapping) both sections 'Tell us what you think' and 'Additional resources'.

(1) More info at Microsoft and various discussion fora, e.g.

Compatibility fix

by JodyGilbert In reply to word template crashed ?

I hadn't taken backward compatibility into account on this one (it was saved in WordXP), so I'm really glad you pointed this out. I resaved it using a Word add-in (Remove Hidden Data), which we normally use to get rid of elements that can derail a doc in earlier versions. I just republished it, so you may want to give it a spin. If you continue to have problems, please let me know and we'll try something else. Thanks again,

Doesn't open in Word 2002 SP3

by robucci In reply to Compatibility fix

Jody, I tried downloading the file to two different systems (both running Word 2002). Openning the file crashes Word everytime.

It doesn't matter whether you Save the file to disk or open directly online. Word still crashes.

Please post a PDF.

I could not get the file to download. I kept getting Microsoft errors. Looked like it might be a good tool.
