INTRODUCTION

Issues that the hotfix package fixes

List of issues that are fixed

This hotfix fixes the following issues:
  • 954540 The changes in the TOC and PageRef fields do not appear when you compare Word 2007 documents
  • 954541 The Ref field is updated incorrectly when you print a Word 2007 document
This hotfix fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • When you compare and merge documents that are written in Chinese characters or in Japanese characters in Word 2007, the text that is marked as deleted and inserted is much larger than the text that is actually changed. For example, if you delete only one character or one word, a large chunk of text around this character or word is marked as deleted. Additionally, the chunk of text is marked as reinserted, except for the character or for the word that is actually deleted.

    Note The issue occurs for both character-level comparison and word-level comparison. However, this issue does not occur if you delete the word or the character at the end of the sentence.
  • Consider the following scenario. You create and then save a new document from a template on a trusted network share. This template contains Microsoft Visual Basic for Application (VBA) code. Then, you open the document again.

    In this scenario, you cannot save the document again. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
    The save failed due to out of memory or disk space.

  • Consider the following scenario. You create and then save a document that contains a table. You delete one row, and you modify the content in the following row. Then, you save the document as a different name.

    In this scenario, if you compare the revised document to the original document, the result is incorrect.
  • Consider the following scenario. You create a Microsoft Office Word 2003 document, and you apply a new style such as Style1 to some paragraphs that have outline numbering enabled. Then, you change the number format of Style1. To change this number format, you add text before the number in that document.

    In this scenario, when you use the Compare Documents functionality to compare the revised document to the original document, the comparison document shows the formatting as the formatting in the original document. However, the comparison document should show the formatting as the formatting in the revised document.
  • You create a document that is based on a template that has customized Ribbons. When you open the document, Word 2007 may not display the Ribbon customizations. This issue can occur if the following conditions are true:
    • The template uses the editing restriction, Filling in forms.

      Note This issue does not occur if the template is unprotected or if the template uses one of the following editing restrictions:
      • Comments
      • No changes (Read only)
      • Tracked changes
    • The document is saved in one of the following file formats:
      • Word 2003 XML Document (*.xml)
      • Word XML Document (*.xml)
      • Word Document (*.docx)
      • Word Macro-Enabled Document (*.docm)
      Note This issue does not occur if the document is saved in a rich text format (RTF) or in a binary document file format.
    However, the template is still correctly loaded as a base template.
  • When you add one or more letters at the beginning or at the end of a word, a word-level comparison only marks the inserted letters as an insertion, as if the inserted characters are a separate word. The expected behavior is that the original word should be marked as deleted, and the new word should be marked as an insertion.
  • If you click to clear the White space check box in the Compare Documents dialog box, the closing paragraph mark of an insertion is ignored. The expected behavior is that the closing paragraph mark should be displayed as part of the insertion, and the closing paragraph mark should not be ignored.
  • When you insert or delete a text box in the revised document, and then you compare this document to the original document, there is a revision bar next to the border of the text box. However, there is no revision markup in the text box.
  • If two plain text content controls are grouped, you may experience the following issues when you run the Spelling and Grammar check:
    • The last word in the first content control is selected together with part of the first word of the second content control. This behavior occurs when the following conditions are true:
      • There is no space after the last word in the first content control.
      • The last word of the first content control is proofed in the Spelling and Grammar dialog box.
      This issue occurs whether the last word of the first content control is spelled correctly.
    • After the last word of the first content control is proofed, the Spelling and Grammar check is complete. However, misspelled words are not checked in the second content control.
