    Ok I know this is a really stupid question, but how do you guys get MAC MS Word into your system? This is my second Macbook, and the first one I just sent the MS application via bluetooth. Any other suggestions? DId all of you buy your MS Word application? Same question goes for Adobe Photoshop. If you download it online, where? Your help is much, much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just download a free office software here. Or probably get iWork. and use Pages. I love it.

    Try to adapt to Pages. It's a lot cooler and easier to use once you get acquainted with it. ;)

    Hello, I need help too!

    Please allow me to post another Word 2008 question here. I am a new member and cannot create a separate thread yet.

    Is there a way to add a macro? If yes, how? I wanted to automate deleting blank lines with just a few clicks of a button.

    Thanks in advance.

    Click on the "Tools" tab, you can find "Macros" from there.

    @blackharlequin: Thanks for the efforts, but kindly take note that the question pertains to recording/creating macros using Word 2008.

    @elice: I'm presently using Office 2008 and the option to create/record macros are not available in menu. I opened Word 2008's Help and did a quick search and apparently the only viable solution is to employ AppleScript. For a bref overview, kindly refer to this page: Apply a workflow or script.

    Oh, my apologies. I overlooked that it should be Word 2008. My screenshot is for Word 2011.

    Anyways, for further info, I found this site pretty informative:

    Hope this helps.

    I've never come across AppleScript before. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, Qin Zhi!

    OT: wildcard, ngayon pwede na! my Posting Rules now read "You may post new threads." I think it changed after I posted my first ever post. Thanks.
