|Do you spend a lot of time in Microsoft Word, working on projects, papers, proposals, and more? Here’s a quick review of five top tips for Word documents.
#1 The Format Painter
Does one section of your document not look like the rest? You can copy formatting from one paragraph and use the format brush to apply it to the paragraph you want to redo.
#2 Check Your Word Count
Does your document have to be a certain number of words long? Or are you trying to stay under a limit for an RFP? Just look in the bottom left of your Microsoft Word document. You’ll see “Page [X] of [X]” and “[X] words” down there.
If you want more information, go to the Review tab on the Ribbon. In the Proofing group on the right, click the Word Count button. You’ll get statistics on pages, words, characters, paragraphs, and more.
#3 Add Pictures from the Web
You can search for and insert pictures from Bing right from your Word document. Looking for something quick?
#4 Explore and Switch Styles
Change up your document’s look with the Themes options on the Design tab. Switch out Document Formatting (style sets) and choose different palettes for your Colors and Fonts.
#5 Get help
Looking for something, or have a question? Look for the light bulb on the Ribbon and the “Tell me” search box. Just type what you want or need to do and the search will send you straight to helpful commands in Help. Still can’t find what you need? Give us a call!
