I was going through the missions just to test them out and I am having a bit of trouble with the Fonts Mission. When I change the second set of characters to an English font, it just comes out in little boxes. Is anyone else having this problem?
I didn't. I changed the font in that paragraph to wingdings and saved it so that the kiddos can change it back to a regular font.
Hi Traci, I had the same problem. When I created these mission it was for earlier versions of word. So if you have Word 10 you will run into some issues with these. I am working on updating them for word 10 but that is still in progress. Side note...I did recreate the Font's Mission in word 10 and I was still unable to change the font from a wingding to an English font! Which seems odd to me. I had no problem changing it from English to a Wingding. So if there is any Word 10 experts out there that can explaine that, wonderful. Sorry it is causing you trouble.
Hi Robin, I hope you don't mind that I posted these. I thought it would be easier than trying to keep up with the emails.
I just noticed what Traci was referring to. I had originally opened the mission on my home laptop which is '07 and in the lab the students use '03. I opened the mission on my school laptop which is on '10 and I got the little boxes too.
I am a little confused (it is the end of the year, right?). The students don't save their documents? I am trying to figure out the best way to do this on our shared computers.
It would actually be great if they didn't save, we are still having issues with saving, and saving to the correct folder :-(
Colleen, You can do it 1 of 2 ways. Have them call you over to check their work before the next mission or print the work out. We don't save them.
Hey all, can anyone tell me what the sentences in the wingding font (to be converted) says? I have to fix this somehow...we have Office 2013 this year.
