Carol’s Ramblings

Well here it is the middle of July already! Seems like only yesterday I was huddled in my office wearing a bulky sweater and longing for Springtime!  Already been to the beach with the grandchildren and had a wonderful time! Still knitting sweaters and toys and whatnot. Learning new things all the time – always a good thing!

Mostly I think I am just enjoying the beauty of summer time. I am trying to take my time and stay in the moment and really be present.  I suggest you try that as well.

I have worked hard to bring you some really good articles this month. I hope you find them useful in your day to day endeavors.

Until next time, remember to be kind to each other and try to have a positive outlook!

How To Add Comments To Your Documents

Word will allow you to add comments to your document, as a separate element of the document. Comments do not interfere with your main text and will appear in their own area of your document. Comments are normally not printed when you print a document.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Place your cursor where you would like your comment anchored. You can, if you like, select a passage of text about which you would like to comment. Simply select your text as you would normally.
  2. Display the Review tab of your Ribbon.
  3. In the Comments group, click on New Comment. Word will place a comment in the margin.
  4. Key in the text of your comment.
  5. When finished with the comment, click somewhere in your document outside of the comment.

If you later want to view your comments, just display the Review tab of your Ribbon and use Next and Previous, in the Comments group, to move from comment to comment.

How To Paste Text In Word Without Formatting

If you reference information from online sources, sometimes copying the information directly into your Word document can have some unwelcome effects. As a rule, you do not want to keep the original formatting in the text you are copying. Fortunately, there is now a quick and easy method to accomplish this.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Copy the text you would like to copy from the source by selecting the text and clicking CTRL + C.
  2. Next, place your cursor in your document where you would like your copied text to appear.
  3. Right-click and select Keep Text Only from the resulting menu.

Very easy right?

You can set a default if you like, so that in the future, your text is automatically pasted in that format. Then you do not have any unpleasant surprises!
