Carol’s Ramblings

I don’t know about where you all live, but in my neck of the woods, the temperatures have been dipping down to the thirties some nights.  I’m not sure I’m ready for that quite yet.  I take a walk every morning (approximately two miles or so) and it has been downright cold of late.  One day I even had to wear a hat and that is unheard of for me!  I wore my gloves too!

But at least it is feeling seasonal and that is a good thing since Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Regardless of nonsense and craziness is going on in the world, I believe we all have things to be thankful for.  I am trying as I get older, to remember to be more mindful of the blessings in my life and to be thankful for them.  I am trying not to dwell on the negative, just the positive.

I attended a birthday party today and it was down in the city.  It made me sad to see so many adults panhandling and begging in the streets of the city.  I hope you all are compassionate toward those less fortunate than you.  The size of your gift is not that important, just that you give and they know that someone does care.

Wherever you hale from, I hope that you enjoy a lovely Thanksgiving this year surrounded by family and loved ones.

Until next time…

How to Remove Formatting Applied over Text Formatted with Styles

Sometimes when folks have just learned how to navigate  styles they have a lapse and begin to apply explicit formatting over the top of style-formatted text. If you inherit such a document you know that getting those styles back to nothing but styles can be very slow going. The Good news is there are some shortcuts to help you with this issue!

Follow the steps below to learn how:
The first thing you can do is select your text and click CTRL+SHIFT+Z to remove all explicit character formatting. The result will be pure styles and nothing else.

  • Clicking CTRL+SHIFT+Z starts the ResetChar command in Word, which is the same as clicking CTRL+SPACEBAR.
  • Another little trick is clicking  CTRL+Q to remove any explicit paragraph formatting and return your paragraph to its style-defined defaults.
  • CTRL+Q will remove any explicit indents, tabs, and line spacing.
  • Lastly, if you want to quickly apply the Normal style to text, you can simply click CTRL+SHIFT+N.

This should save you some time and frustration!
