I inherited my desktop Mac from my girlfriend last year when she got a new one. We now live together and have our computers on the same network, and now MS Office complains that I don't have a license for this computer. Do I have any options other than buying a whole new MS Office license/package? [more inside]

I'm trying to start an internet cafe-type business and I'm having real trouble understanding how to properly license copies of Microsoft Office, as well as Adobe software (e.g. Photoshop). There's a further caveat, which is that customers will use thin clients to access virtualized PCs on a central server. [more inside]

Creating a form template
for colleagues to use at work that needs to meet the following criteria:
1. Allow text fields and drop-down selection boxes.
2. Allow users to add additional text in should they see fit (i.e. doesn't disallow all input outside of form fields).
3. Will allow rows (the form will be arranged like a table) to be duplicated/copied & pasted, including the form fields contained within those rows.
4. Is formatted nicely enough to be passed along to a client and read clearly.
5. Is openable/usable by your average user who doesn't have access to super expensive/specialized software. [more inside]

Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional: I've got a document with several hundred links in it. Right now, they're all invisible; I'd like to change them all to dotted rectangles of a particular color. Is there any way to change the appearance of every link in the document simultaneously? "Make this the default appearance" doesn't do it; it only affects the links you make in the future. Help?

Is there a way to cut'n'paste charts from Excel into Word, without generating huge Word files? I've tried varieties of paste, 'paste special,' and so on, and I can't figure out why an Excel file of charts that's several hundred KB, always turns into a Word file that's at least several MB. I guess I'm missing something obvious, but have no idea what it is.
