    Hi,

    So, I'm still new to the whole Mac OS X happening, just got my MacBook about three of weeks ago (very happy with it ^__^). But, there's this little problem. I'm now using Microsoft Office 2008, and I often use Page Breaks. Previously, on the windows computer I used, I could simply press ctrl + return to insert a page break, but this is not a standard shortcut in the Mac version.
    My solution - or at least, I hoped it would be a solution - was to use a custom shortcut for Microsoft Word via the System Preferences. I would like to set it to either ctrl + return or cmd + return, but it doesn't work.. However, when I try a shortcut like ctrl + cmd + down - or really anything without the return key - it works just fine. So, here comes the actual question; Is there any way to incorporate the return key within the shortcut?

    Ohh, and now another problem comes in mind, I've got this Video_TS dir on my HD from a dvd which I tried to open, but when it's opened it simply 'plays' the menu. So I'm unable to actually select the option from it, and it simply goes to other part - like chapter selection - afterwards.
    It also plays little bits of the files, hangs for while, and skips a bit, then repeats the cycle.
    Anyone familiar with it? I use VLC Player Open Disk... with the Video_TS folder option.
    Ohh, and the files play fine on the windows pc next to me.. :(

    I realise this last question maybe should be in another topic, or has already been answered somewhere on the forum. But I did do a search for the first one, and couldn't find any information on it.
    I hope you guys can help me with any of them, and thanks in advance. ^__^

    Cheers

    Welcome back page break

    I thought I had tried every possible key combination. Obviously I hadn't!

    Thanks very much

    Use:

    Shift + Command + Return

    It's the standard combo

    There are different kinds of breaks going on here...

    • shift+fn+return = page break
    • shift+command+return = column break (same effect as page break only if you're not in a section broken into columns)
    • fn+command+enter = Section Break, Next Page (jumps to new page and a new section, allowing you to do things like change headers, footers, page numbers within a particular section
