Thank you to everyone who has posted questions. We're looking at them and looking into many of them. In the meantime, here are a couple that have cropped up in the hallways.
And what are those links at the end? That's where you can find information in Word 2007 Help.
The answer to this question involves sections. In your Word document, add a section break. For example, if you want page numbering to start at 1 on the 6th page, replace the page break that's between the 5th and 6th pages with a Next Page section break. (You can add a section break by clicking Breaks and then Next Page in the Page Setup group on the Page Layout tab.)
Now that you have a new section, you can tell Word to start the page numbering of that section with 1. On the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click Page Number, and then click Format Page Numbers. Under Page numbering, click Start at, and then enter 1 in the box.
Big hint: If the headers and footers in your document are linked to each other, you'll still have page numbers in the first section. To keep page numbers off the pages in the first section (or to use a different numbering format), turn off Link to Previous.
If you see this in your document:
It is not the same thing, and thank you for asking.
Showing or hiding changes affects what you see on the screen. It does not affect what is in the document. To turn off the Track Changes, click Track Changes in the Track Changes group on the Review tab.
After you turn off Track Changes, the markup you already had is still there
This is important:
To remove all of the changes that have already been tracked in your document, use the Review tab to accept or reject the changes.
You can also use the Document Inspector to remove them all at once. But that Document Inspector is very thorough. It will remove document properties and headers and footers.
If you don't want that level of inspection (and removal), change the settings before you run Document Inspector. Click the Microsoft Office Button, point to Prepare, click Inspect Document, and then clear the check boxes for items that you don't want to change.

Nice to see more help on how to handle things with the Ribbon interface. However I want you to have a look at this example comparison of describing to the user how to format page numbers. For the previous Word versions it would read like this: From the "Insert" menu select "Page Numbers", and then click on "Format". You describe it for the Ribbon like this: On the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click Page Number, and then click Format Page Numbers. Decide yourself what's faster to write, easier to remember and for the user to click. If you got two Word versions give it a try.
Will Office 14 come with a native 64-bit version (not just for the server applications)? By the time it is released 4GB+ of RAM will probably have become more widespread, pushing 64-bit adoption.
How add new menu item into fly contextual menu for Word 2007? Thank you.
Good question. If it's possible at all in Word 2007 then it can be done only programmatically using the CommandBar-Object. A GUI for adjusting the (context) menus and toolbars does not exist anymore.
I'm trying to put together a training document for Word, and I'd like to insert the "non-printing characters" as symbols so they'll print. But I can't find them ANYWHERE in the symbols gallery. How do I put the space mark, tab mark, line break symbols, etc. into my document? Thanks.
Mr. Comparison: Yes, it takes longer, or more words to explain the steps. But the idea is that it will be shorter to do than the old way--especially when the tabs become more familiar. (As a side note, we've found that when we create check boxes with really specific labels, they are easier to use, but when we put that long, bold label in a Help article, it looks a little, uh, long.) jl06: I'm glad you found an answer on the Facebook group.

@jl06 - "non-printing symbols" What I do is take screenshots of a document with the non-printing characters visible. Then I crop the screenshot multiple times so that I have an individual picture file for each character (using Photoshop). Finally, I have created quick parts and use the names as shortcuts to quickly and easily insert the symbols. Hope that helps,
Why not crop the screenshots directly in Word
and put the cropped pictures after using the "Compress pictures" dialog into quick parts?
Another question, more challenging than what can be found in the standard Help features. How about a document having multiple sections (2+)? The first section is introductory and is not taken into account for the total number of pages. Following sections are taken into account for the total number of pages... Unfortunately one can only choose to use a field containing the total number of pages in the *whole document* or the number of pages in that *specific section*? Imagine having to insert a page with another orientation (portrait/landscape), which makes you inserting an extra section...
Is there field to insert _my_ total number of pages in the document (being w/o 1st section)?
Word user--No, there is not a built-in field that does total number of pages across sections ignoring the set page numbers. You might check out the solution posted here as an alternative: gregmaxey.mvps.org/Page_Numbering.htm.
@0,0000000000. . . .1 Sure, you can do that too. Whatever gets the job done for you. For my workflow and my uses of the screenshots, the added step of Photoshop is useful.
How do I insert multiple pictures into a word document without having to resize each individual photograph?
I consider myself to be a sweet and gentle person, but when Word 2007 has me banging my mouse on my desk out of total frustration, I wonder! You had a whole generation of people who knew how to utilize a program, who now have to re-learn it...and there is no HELP anywhere! Instead, I get to sift through THOUSANDS of posts of other people frustrated with the program. How is that helpful? Linux here I come, with Ubuntu. I run Office on my Mac, but I will look to change that as well. I always encouraged people to use Word over Word Perfect, but no longer. This has to be the most frustrating upgrade you all have ever rolled out. Nothing works...just trying to take off a simple outline on a text box now requires knowing where the heck the right tab, with the right command, etc. is. I can no longer put the drawing toolbar at the bottom of my screen and just click it off! It is just an outline...it should not be this complicated! I think--after all these years of being pro Office--I have finally reached a point of total hatred of any and all Microsoft products. I realize I do not matter at all--just one more pissed off person held captive by your monopoly, but given time and enough other people jumping ship, maybe we can make a dent in total hair brained idea like ruining a product people came to rely upon.
