Microsoft Word/reversed letters
My program just developed a strange problem. When I close a file and reopen it, the first line comes out in reverse. For example, if I type Chapter One, it changes itself to enO retpahC
Hello - I have not seen that before and doing a browser search resulted in only 3 options. One seemed to be the title of a book and it did not seem to be a site I was comfortable accessing.
Either - your auto correct has this entry or you have some kind of a virus. I would also ask, did you create the document from scratch or is is based on a document that someone else created?
To check your autocorrect File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options
in the Replace field - type - Chapter One and see if it is already there, if so simply delete the entry
If not, I would do a virus scan.
I don't see which version of Word you are using, but I did not find any results for any reason other than a possible "easter egg" which are no long within the new versions of Word.
