Carol’s Ramblings

Well, the holidays are over, but winter is not.  We had our first snow today!  It really is beautiful but I personally am counting down to Spring time!  I loathe being cold and it’s in the twenties tonight!

We all had a lovely holiday and I hope that you did as well.  I did my best to create very helpful and interesting posts for you this month.  I hope you like them.

Until next time, take care of you…

Subscribers: How to Adjust Kerning in Word

Once a font is designed, a certain amount of space is designated for inter-character spacing. This spacing determines how close adjacent characters will be to each other. Unfortunately, not all characters will appear the same width when read on a printed page. Depending on the characters, this may cause an illusion that characters are spaced […]

Subscribers: How to Resolve the Issue of Missing Fonts in Letterheads

One of my subscribers was attempting to make a letterhead template for her office. The document is fairly simple and straightforward, consisting of text only - no graphics involved.

How To Format Captions in Your Word Documents

Word includes a captioning feature that will allow you to manually or automatically add captions in your document. These captions are typically placed with tables or other objects to identify them. For instance, you might have a caption such as “Figure 1” that appears below a figure.

When you use the captioning feature, Word automatically formats the caption using the Caption style. By default, the Caption style uses the same typeface as your Normal style, except it is bold. If you want to use a different set of attributes for your captions, all you need to do is change the Caption style.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Display the Home tab of your Ribbon.
  2. Click the small icon at the bottom-right of the Styles group to  display the Styles pane at the right side of the desktop.
  3. Click Options at the bottom of the Styles pane to display the Style Pane Options dialog box.

styke-pane-options

  1. Using the Select Styles to Show drop-down list, select All Styles.
  2. Click OK to close the Style Pane Options dialog box.
  3. In the Styles pane, scroll through the list of styles until you see the Caption style.
  4. Hover your mouse over the Caption style name. Notice that a downward-pointing arrow appears at the right side of the style name.
  5. Click on the downward-pointing arrow and select the Modify option from the resulting menu. Word will display the Modify Style dialog box.
  6. Click on Format and choose the portion of the style you would like to change.
  7. Click on OK to save your modifications.
  8. Close the Styles pane.

Moving Text in Your Word Documents Using Your Mouse

Word has many different tools you can use to edit your documents. Perhaps one of the least used, but most unique methods of editing your document, uses the mouse entirely. You can use your mouse to move text, the same way you would move another element, such as a graphic. To move text with your mouse, you need to first ensure that the feature is enabled.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Display the Word Options dialog box. (In Word 2007 click the Office button and then click Word Options. In Word 2010 or a later version display the File tab of your Ribbon and then click Options.)
  2. At the left side of the dialog box click Advanced.

word-options

    1. Make sure the check box beside the Allow Text to Be Dragged and Dropped option is selected. (The option is in the Editing section.)
    2. Click OK to close the dialog box.

Once enabled, you can use your mouse to move text by following the steps below:

  1. Select the text you want to move.
  2. Click on the text with the mouse and drag it to where you want it moved.
  3. Release the mouse button.

If you want to simply copy your text (instead of actually moving it) you can hold down the Ctrl key while using the mouse to drag the selection.
