Ignore Me Please: MS Word

Somehow, some way, you have hit just the right key combination and now your Spellcheck is not checking your spelling in your documents! One should never rely primarily on MS Word's Spellcheck feature; you should also perform the old fashion ... proofread. Having said that, MS Word's Spellcheck is still pretty nifty to have and use and so you will want to rectify whatever you have done to make it stop working -- that is unless you enjoy going through a fifty page document word-by-word with a dictionary at your side. Nah, I didn't think you wanted to do that anymore than I would. If you want to ... (view more)

Make Sure your Copied Text is Clean in MS Word

Many times we copy text from some place on the Internet and then blithely paste it into our half-finished Word document to complete a report for someone in our office. But now it doesn't look quite right and you cannot seem to edit it for some ... reason!

Scale Documents To Size in MS Word Without Reformatting

You have just opened your new restaurant and are creating menus in MS Word. Ok, piece of cake, no pun intended. The menu that you print out looks just fine in the letter sized folders you purchased for them. But wait, you wanted to put a smaller ... version of the 'Pizza' menu inside one of those smaller acrylic holders to place on the tables. You could use a photocopier and reduce the document...but then the print would be so small that no one could read it without a magnifying glass! There has to be a way to do this. There certainly is a way to do it in MS Word and it is relatively painless. ... (view more)

Set a language to a Style in Word

When you enter text into your Word document other than English, chances are Word will not recognize it and will interpret it as misspelled. If it is necessary for you to have sections of non-English text within your English-language Word documents, ... then you know how annoying it is when Word checks the spelling of the non-English text using its English dictionary. Word is programmed to automatically proofread your document for the language version that is installed on your computer. If you purchased your licensed copy of MS Word in the United States, your text will all be marked as English (U. ... (view more)

That Blank Page at the End of Your Word Table!

A reader recently wrote to me asking me how to remove the blank page at the end of the table in her document. When you create a table that ends at the bottom margin in an MS Word document, Word will automatically insert a new blank page. This takes ... place whether you want it or not because there is a paragraph inserted by default at the end of your document. If you click on the pilcrow on your toolbar (looks like a backwards P) it will turn on the Show/Hide button, which will reveal a paragraph mark after the table. This can be very annoying, especially when you do not need an extra page. Word ... (view more)
