    Default The "Word" of the day is ... Word

    The purpose of this month-long seminar is to cover material for author days and chats. But, I also have material to cover some advanced techniques for MS Word that will help you in any type of marketing.

    If you use Word are interested in getting some shortcuts, customized menus, etc., please post here and let me know. I will post Word info on this thread and do regular lessons on other ones.

    If you are having trouble getting Word to cooperate with you in an area, or want it to *stop* doing something post your questions here.

    Oh, good!

    I will be using some material about organizing a WIP folder too, since we have several days left and there is time to cover more. This is material from a workshop I did that taught writers how to create a customized Word menu. I use mine all the time.

    I have a menu called Marketing that contains all the documents I need to promo, send out review requests, blurbs, tags, and my signature file. Very handy.

    hi Kayelle,

    I've learned how to do those folders too. They save a lot of space in my documents area.

    Default Word Tip: Find/Replace

    I'd hate to give up any of the goodies that come with Word, but if I could only keep one, it would be the Find/Replace command. You'll be amazed when you discover all the things it can do.

    Here are a few of its neat tricks:

    1. change all italics/bold/plain/underlined text to colored text so it stands out
    2. eliminate manual page breaks
    3. fix text downloaded from the web so it flows smoothly
    4. change all instances of a specific word or phrase at once
    5. replace special characters and tabs
    6. change multiple tabs to a single tab
    7. change tenses of a root verb (change sit to stand, and also sat with stood - at the same time)
    8. find all the "ly" endings in a document

    These are only a few of the things it does. Once you learn to work with it, this command is a great timesaver.

    I've numbered the list so we can go through each item one at a time.

    If i'm using the search function, that's great. But how do I clear out the search function sothat when I use the shortcut to move down pages at at time, it does that, instead of finding the next instnace of said word searched?

    Make sense?

    You are referring to the little down arrows on the right of the page, correct?

    There is an up arrow, a circle, and a down arrow. Click the circle, and you will see a menu pop up.



    From left to right, top:
    Browse by: field, endnote, footnote, comment, section, page

    From left to right, bottom:
    Go to, Find, Browse by: edits, heading, graphic, table

    To cancel the find command and return to page down usage, click the page button (top right).

    To search only graphics, or footnotes, etc., choose one of the other commands. There are bazillion ways to do things in Word. These are more options for you to play with.

    Was this what you had in mind?
