How do I adjust the word/character limit in Announcement web parts?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

So In 2007 there was a default limit of 250 characters in annoucement web parts, that could be adjusted via the "Limit Len=" in designer, but I do not see anything close to that in 2010 and that limit is simply too small for real use.

I have the following text "Items focused on helping you develop and implement strategies are included on this page.  If you are looking for either the Strategic Solutions Team (SST) or the Sales Resource Hub...you found it!  We will continue to refine and add materials to Strategy to help you win...period!"

That gets cut off with half a sentence to go.  Honestly, who is the genius who put such a small limit on this web part and then removed the only way to adjust it via designer?

Word 07 Quick Parts--an equivalent in powerpoint?

I recently learned about creating templates in Word and using "Quick Parts" I find very useful as part of those templates, helping me to easily choose the appropriate text for each document.

I have a powerpoint slide show that needs to be similarly tailored depending on the audience. I'm wondering if there is anything equivalent to that which would let me just as easily modify a powerpoint template?

Document Set, shared columns, Word Documents and quick parts


I have a document set with shared columns docset1, sharedcol1, sharedcol2.  My document set is made up of another content type (subdoctype1) that does not have sharedcol1, and sharedcol2, but they are shared via the doc set.

How do I add sharedcol1 and sharedcol2 to quick parts in the word doc?

If I create a document in the set of subdoctype1 and go to insert->quick part->Document Property I do not see the shared columns.  If I save the document and re-open it I do see the shared columns.  How can I add the shared columns to a template with no values?  It seem like I need an actual instance of the doc set with my sub-document type to exist before I can use it.

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Sandboxed Solutions for Web Parts in SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 provides a new sandboxed environment that enables you to run user solutions without affecting the rest of the SharePoint farm. This environment means that users can upload their own custom solutions without requiring intervention from administrators, and without putting the rest of the farm at risk.

Writing Custom Web Parts for SharePoint 2007

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, SharePoint 2007 is built on top of ASP.NET 2.0, which means you can now use ASP.NET 2.0 features (Forms Authentication, Master Pages, Membership, Site Navigation, New Data Controls, etc) when building SharePoint sites. This is true for both the new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 version (which will be a free download) as well as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (which costs money).
