Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yes, Valentine’s day is upon us.  Time is chugging right along and it was actually light out when I rose this morning!  And last night it was still light out at 5:30 in the evening!  Before you know it Spring will be here and I for one, cannot wait!

Lots of good information this time around and a really, really good tutorial.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it for you.

Don’t forget to let that special person in your life know how you feel about them and wish them happy Valentine’s day!  Please also remember to look out for those less fortunate than yourself.

Until next time, take care …

Take Care When Modifying the Normal.dotm in Word!

Whether you know it or not, every document you create in Word starts with the template named Normal.dotm.

This template includes the default styles and behavior that determine the look of each new document you create.

You may modify this template to avoid resetting something every time you open a new document. BUT, beware that if Normal.dotm is damaged or moved, Word will create a new version the next time you open Word, but it will not include the customizations you have previously made.

The same thing could occur when you upgrade to the next version of Office.

So, if you work alone, making a few changes to your Normal.dotm is harmless, but always be sure to save a copy someplace on your computer just in case the worst case scenario happens!
