Carol’s Ramblings

Autumn is in full swing now and the temperatures finally feel like it!  I had to wear a jacket when I went out tonight and I even wore a sweater to walk down to retrieve the mail this afternoon!

I think I have put together some really good articles with very helpful information for you this month.  I sure hope you agree!

This is the time of year when I am always very busy but I like to be busy.  Let me know of any Office shortcuts that you use that I may not know about or that you would just like to share.  I love hearing from my subscribers!

It’s getting cold out now so please remember to take the time to help those who are living on the street or just need your help.  Remember, it could be any one of us suffering like that.  I like to think that if it were me, someone would help me.

Until next time, take care of you…

Word's configuration settings are stored in the Normal template. This template is used to help create new, blank documents and to define some of the system-wide settings used by Word. As you make changes to these settings, Word marks the Normal template as "dirty" so that it will be saved when you exit the program. […]

How To Set Default Attributes for Lines & Arrows in Excel

I have a subscriber who adds lines and arrows regularly to flowcharts that she has created in Excel. She inquired whether there is a way to set a default line weight, color, and arrow, because it is very tiresome  changing the attributes all the time. As it turns out, it really is not all that difficult to do.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Draw your line or arrow as you would normally.
  2. Format your line or arrow so that it appears exactly the way you want it.
  3. Right-click on your line or arrow to display a Context menu.
  4. From the Context menu select Set Default Line.

It doesn’t get much easier than this!
