Angry fields are difficult

well, i have been dealing with frame maker a lot and i admit, it is easier,


but when dealing with word....
can someone tell me how do i unlock fields cause shortcut that i have read does nothing using f11, i have those fields that cannot be updated unless they are edited first,
i have a huge file and i have to enter at each one of them,
also when i update chapter references with chap numbers and text, quotations are lost when i try to update them, format also, how can i insert quotations but not manually?

In Word, you can unlock fields in the selection by pressing Ctrl+Shift+F11. (Note that, depending on your keyboard, you may have to press Ctrl+Shift+FN+F11.) Once you have unlocked them, you can update many fields by switching to Print Preview (Ctrl+P) and then return to Print Layout view (ESC). Or you can select the whole document (Ctrl+A) and update with F9.

How did you create these references?

Which kind of quotations are you referring to?

What is shown if you display field codes (Alt+F9)?

{ REF _Ref3503013 \h } is an ordinary cross-reference field, so that doesn't give any clues.

Can you share the document with the forum? If you click the Go Advanced button at the bottom of the screen, you'll find an option to upload documents as attachments.

In my opinion, anyone who has not gone through that series of tutorials needs to do so, no matter how experienced with Word. Trust me, you will learn something you need to know.


If it is field training you want, look at Paul Edstein's pinned threads in this forum.
Here is my page on different fields. It is nowhere near as in depth as are Paul's analyses. it does have links to many other resources.

Looking at your example document, I can select the whole document and then unlock all the fields with Ctrl+Shift+F11.

Updating the fields will produce error messages, though, presumably because the target bookmarks are missing in your example file.
