Yeah, I know, I’m not really a huge fan of Micro$oft Office either, but, what can you do when it’s become the defacto standard?
Make the most of it!
So, back in the day, the reason I originally got into computers at all was due to writing. I know, crazy, right? Well, I discovered how much easier it was to edit documents without having to retype the whole thing and I was hooked. Then, as I wrote more, I got really into moving whole sentences and paragraphs and, yes, even entire, multi-page sections of text from one part of my work to another. It was pretty fantastic, really. In any case, copying and moving text is one of the things that Word is really good for and there’s even a secret feature to make your editing job easier; The Spike.
With the Spike, you can copy or cut multiple sections of text and then paste them all into the same section all at once! You can even take text from multiple documents and copy it to the Clipboard and then paste it into a new document with the Spike! How fantastic is that?
So, go check out the link and see how to leverage all that power for yourself.
