An old silver surfer who does archive work for charity (copying and pasting abstracts in medical articles using Adobe X) has found that in
the past few weeks, symbols such as = are printed as a quarter, and it can't deal at all with < (underlined). These are all commonly found in medical papers. I upgraded to the latest version, hoping that the bug would have been fixed, but alas, it's still there.
I like Word 2003 for its simplicity and do not wish to upgrade. Recent clean resintall, so there should not be malware etc. (I'm well protected). Is there any setting I can change to permit me to cut and paste as before? Accurately.
