    An old WORD form imported to InfoPath

    I imported an old Word form into Infopath. After making numerous
    changes/enhancements to the form, using InfoPath 2007, I have saved the form
    in both InfoPath 2003 and 2007. For both versions, I find that I am unable
    perform some other functions:

    1. I cannot use Color Schemes. Nothing happens when I choose a schema.
    2. I have chosen browser compatibility to open either in a browser or in
    InfoPath. I have 3 design checker errors telling me that rich text
    formatting options are not supported. I have other browser enabled InfoPath
    forms, that I created from scratch, that use rick text formatting.
    3. I am unable to view the page width guide. I can select it for viewing,
    but it does not show.
    4. I am unable to set the form to landscape mode. InfoPath throws an error
    that it has encountered an error and that the operation has failed. (More
    info would really be helpful in these error messages!!!)

    Please assist as I really do not want to create this form from scratch!

    Try asking in a Word discussion group. Here's how to find one:

    As you appear to be using a web interface, start here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/communities...s/default.aspx

    In the tree on the left, first open the English category, then open Office
    and Desktop Applications. In Office and Desktop Applications, find and open
    the Word category. There, you'll find a group for your question.
