Subscribers: Word – Space Before or After your Paragraphs?

In many instances you may have documents that need extra spacing between your paragraphs, if for no other reason than not wanting to hit the old Enter key as if you were using a typewriter!  Believe it or not, those folks exist and still hit that Enter key twice between their paragraphs. As you know […]

Manual Line Breaks using Justified Paragraphs in Word

Tons of folks love to use justified paragraphs in their documents.  I personally prefer the ragged edge to my paragraphs, but to each  his own!

Justified paragraphs align both the left and right edges of your text in your paragraph, as in magazines and books.

If you are one of the folks who uses justified paragraphs, you may have noted that when you add a manual line break in your justified paragraph, Word will force the line to the full width of your paragraph which looks very weird.

You can avoid this behavior by making certain that you enter a tab character just prior to your manual line break. When you do that, Word will make the line with the tab left aligned, and ignore the justification alignment you have applied to your whole paragraph!

Jump to an Endnote In Word

Quite often there is a function you can use in Word to do what you want done and in this instance that is the Go To function. You can use it to jump to a specific endnote in your Word document.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Click F5  or CTRL + G to display the go to tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.
  2. On the left hand side of the dialog, select Endnote. This will let word know what you want to go to.
  3. Note that the Enter Page Number box is changed to the Enter Endnote Number box.

Go To

  1. In the Endnote Number box, key in the endnote number to which you would like to jump.
  2. If you just want to go to the next endnote in your document, leave the box empty.
  3. Click your mouse on the Go To button or the Next button.

If there are no endnotes in your document, or if you enter an invalid endnote number, Word will position you at the beginning of your document.

Carol's Ramblings

Ten More Weeks to Spring!

That’s what I keep telling myself – only ten more weeks until Spring!  We have had such bone chilling cold weather this year that I find myself longing for Spring even more zealously than I normally do!

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday and a healthy and happy New Years celebration.  We celebrated quietly at home.  I like to reflect on what has transpired throughout the year, look at ways that I have changed for better or for worse.  I don’t really make resolutions.  Instead I just resolve to try and be a better person in the coming year, to be kinder and gentler with others and more generous and giving not just of my money but myself.  Hopefully, I will be successful. The important thing is that I try.

I have enjoyed my grandchildren immensely during the holiday season.  I was in my glory holding the new babies and playing with the one and a half and two and a half year old. I am very happy to report that my grandson who was born with severe reflux and a feeding problem is now doing very well.  I watched him eat a half a sandwich the other day and said a silent prayer of thanks that he is now able to do that.

I hope that you all enjoyed your holidays as much as I did and that you had enough to eat and warm clothes and a roof over your head. If you had all that, you are more fortunate than at least half the world.  Please remember the other half of the world in your prayers.

So, the countdown begins now for me…waiting to hear the peepers and I will know that Spring is in the offing.  It will be a while yet, but I am still listening…ever hopeful.

Thank you all who wrote to me to wish me glad tidings during the holidays.  I always enjoy hearing from all of you.

Remember, if there is something in particular that you would like to see covered in a post, please let me know.

Until next time…take care and be kind to one another.
