Well, my attached file didn't get sent. At least I don't think it did. That's annoying, as I can't get at Quentin's email.
Also, just downloaded the compatibility pack, and after installing it, tried to open one of my word files with Jarte. It opened, but all I saw was a bunch of gibberish. Is there a setting I need to tweak to make the content comprehensible? I'm using the
portable version of Jarte because I'm still deciding whether it's worth installing and the option was available.

I've just made this file in Jarte itself, saved in .rtf. It behaves as I described below. Since it's a test file specifically created to demonstrate my issue, I have no problems sending it to the list at large. It's perfectly safe, guys!

I've noticed the opposite. I had Microsoft Word Starter 2010 on my original computer when I first got it, and then Microsoft Office 2013 when Mum bought me a license for one computer. NVDA always reads italics and bold as expected, only on the words that
formatting is affecting. In Word Pad, saved into rtf for the purposes of reading and working with it in JARTE, the same files the emphasis is clearly announced in have it blurred. Single italicised words in the middle of lines are passed over, while words
at the beginning of the line dictate whether the whole line will be treated as plain, italic or bold. When scrolling over it character by character, it doesn't do this, but when I use say-all, it behaves as I described. It may be something to do with Office
messing things up even when the file's saved as rtf, but I remember noticing this a long time ago when I thought writing in word pad was my only means of writing. That resulted in me posting a chapter of a fanfiction with a whole chunk of text in italics that
I never meant to be so.
I'd send a file, but your email doesn't seem to be tied to this message, only the email address of the list, and all the relevant files are of stories or parts of stories I have written. I'm quite protective of rough drafts of things...

No I'm not using anything special. If you are re-using the same Word file over and over or the same template, it's possible there's something hidden in it that could be causing problems. To be honest, I've more seen that in Office itself and opening
a file in something other than office is more likely to fix it, but you never know. If you have a file that's doing it, that you are happy to send me offline, I can have a look and see if it works on my computer.
