Carol's Ramblings

Carol’s Ramblings. . .

Well, it’s that time of year again – indeed my FAVORITE time of year.  I know my subscribers worship in different ways and have different holidays and religious faiths, but I still want to extend my warmest Merry Christmas to all of you.  It is my holiday and I would like to share it with you, especially this year when there seems to be so much anger and discord among us.  What better time to share our different cultures, family traditions and beliefs?  It doesn’t mean that I am trying to force my beliefs or dogma on you, it just means that I want to share with you.  How else do we evolve and learn and understand each other?

In my particular faith this is a year of mercy.  I like that. I don’t think you have to subscribe to any particular religious belief to show mercy toward your fellow man or woman.  I think it’s just the golden rule.  My mother always taught me to treat everyone the way I wanted to be treated.  Oh yes, I have been disappointed many times during my lifetime when I have done that, but at the end of the day I am always glad that I took the high road and did the right thing. So, I will ask you all too, to be merciful to each other,  you will feel better because of it.

You may notice that there are less articles this month and some of them may seem a bit familiar.  The reason for that is that I have been busier than a one-armed paper hanger with the itch!  It is the holiday season and I have been busy, busy, busy. What with baking, shopping, Christmas cards, gift wrapping, pageants, and concerts, I have run out of time.  I didn’t want to cheat my faithful readers though and so I have repeated articles that I often receive requests for and I hope they are helpful to all of you.

So, hold your loved ones close and savor the holiday. Merry Christmas!

And remember, Christmas hugs are the very best!!!

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Select the cell or cells whose content you would like aligned.

How to Add Sequential Numbering Elements in your Word Documents

You can automatically number items in your document. Most of you already know this. You can also automatically number figures, tables, illustrations, etc. If you decide to reorder those items, Word will automatically update the numbers so that the are in the correct order.

Follow the steps below to learn how to sequentially number items in your text:

  1. Place your cursor where you would like the sequential number to appear. (i.e., caption for a table).
  2. Click CTRL + F9 to insert field brackets. You cannot insert the braces manually as it will not work.
  3. Key in seq followed by the name of the element you are numbering. The name is your choice but it should be the same for each item in this particular sequence. (i.e., seq figures).
  4. Click F9 to update your field information.

Word has now replaced the field with the next number in the sequence you have specified.

How to Find the Notes Folder in Outlook 2013

Because of its limited usage, the Notes folder is hidden a tiny bit more than it used to be, but it is still there.

Follow the steps below to access the Notes folder:

  • Click the indicator next to Tasks.
  • To make it permanently visible, select Navigation Options. You can then either move the Notes module up or increase the Maximum number of visible items from 4 to 5.
  • My favorite way to access the Notes folder though, is, of course, a shortcut  – CTRL + 5.
