Handy Tips on Microsoft Word
__________________________________________________ ______________________
These tips are necessary everyday, and most are easy to remember. So get to work memorize, memorize, memorize.
__________________________________________________ _____________
Adding Horizontal Dividers in Word

To add a variety of horizontal dividers in Word, type three characters and press enter.
These three characters are given below:
Hyphens ( --- )
Underscores ( ___ )
Equal Signs ( === )
Hash Signs ( ### )
Asterisks ( *** )
Tildes ( ~~~)


Type Out a Table in Word

You can create tables in Microsoft Word by simply typing out a string of PLUS SIGNS + and MINUS SIGNS -.
Start the row with a PLUS SIGN + and then type MINUS SIGN - until you have the column width you want. To add a new column type PLUS SIGN + again. When you're done type a final PLUS SIGN + and press ENTER. Word turns your text into a table. To add more rows to your table, move to the last cell in the table and press TAB

Select a vertical block of text
Press Alt + drag


Quickly Replicate Text or Graphics in Word



Here's a quick way to make copies of text or graphics in Word:
  1. Select the item or text you want to copy.
  2. Press and hold down the CTRL key.
  3. Then use the mouse to drag the item to the desired position.
A copy of the original item is made right where you want it. This is helpful when you're creating a document that will include a lot of repeated text or images

Return to the last place you were working
Return to the last place you were working or the place before that or before that.
Press Shift + F5 repeatedly to return to last 5 cursor positions (even if one of those positions is in another open document).
This one's even cleverer, when you first open a document, press shift + F5 to jump to the last place you or someone else edited before closing the document


Cycle through all open documents
To cycle through all open documents press Ctrl + F6 +F6 +F6?.
It works for Photoshop and others applications as well.
Whether you're saving a file or opening a file try these shortcuts
Alt + 1 Go to previous folder
Alt + 2 Go up one folder level
Alt + 3 Search the web
Alt + 4 or Delete deletes selected file.
Alt + 5 Create a new folder
Alt + 6 repeatedly Cycle through all views.
Alt + 7 Display the Tools menu
Determining Formatting in Word
To determine what formatting is applied to a particular paragraph in Word:
  • Go to Help / What's This?
  • When the cursor changes to a question mark, click on the paragraph.
  • Information such as font and size, alignment, indent, spacing and margins will show


Reducing the File Size of Word Documents
If you have make documents using MS Word and you make many formatting changes for the paragraph, fonts, page etc., you will see your file size gets bigger. Microsoft Word saves files by blocking, so any change you made for your document it will create a new block with the new formatting and disappear the old block without deleting it from the file.
You can solve this problem.
1. If you open your file and select File \ Save As and give your file a new name, it will save only the active blocks with out the old ones.
2. If you compare the two files you will see a difference in size
There is, however, a much easier way.
1. Choose Tools
2. Options...
3. Open the Save tab
4. Uncheck Allow Fast Saves
This makes Word rewrite the entire document file from scratch each time it is saved. The save command takes slightly longer, but your files can be drastically smaller (especially if you've done lots of formatting changes).
