Carol’s Ramblings

Well in a little over a week, summer will officially be over. I will mourn the loss as I always do.  I hate being cold and I hate driving in the dark on the way home from work.  So yes, I will mourn the loss of summer for a week or so until I get used to the new season and then I will immerse myself in all cool and cold weather pursuits.  We must go with the flow must we not?

Thank you for the well wishes I have received regarding my husband’s surgery.  He is doing much better now and the doctor has released him to do chores that he was not allowed to do three weeks ago.

Please in these trying times, be kind to each other and to everyone you meet.  We never know what another person is dealing with and the state of the world is pretty depressing lately, so let’s try to be the change we want to see.

Until next time, take care of you…

How To Not Share Comments Or Changes in Word

I am sure a lot, if not all of you, know what a robust tool Track Changes is in Word. It is also a good editing tool because it will show you the changes made in a document over a period of time. Of course, there is also another Word tool – Comments. It allows you to insert comments in your document for any reason or no reason. You may not want to share your changes or comments with your colleagues or to even print documents that may contain these sort of edits though.

Fortunately, there is a way that you can double check to be certain this does not happen.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. On your Ribbon, click File | Options.
  2. At the left-hand side, click Trust Center.
  3. Click Trust Center Settings to display the Trust Center dialog box.
  4. On the left, click Privacy Options.

  1. Be certain the Warn Before Printing, Saving, or Sending a File That Contains Tracked Changes or Comments has been selected.
  2. Click on OK to close the Trust Center.
  3. Click Cancel to close the Word Options dialog box.

There is a Caveat though!  Selecting this option will only show warning if you  e-mail your document using the menu options in Word. If you close Word and then send your document as an attachment to an e-mail, no warning will be provided!

How To Display Shortcut Keys in ScreenTips

Some folks find it helpful to have Word include shortcut keys in any ScreenTips it may display. If you were not aware, ScreenTips will normally appear when you hover your cursor over a toolbar button and a short blurb about what the button does will display.

If you hover your mouse over the Bold tool  located on the Home tab of your Ribbon, the ScreenTip will usually say Bold. You can, however, make it instead display Bold (Ctrl +B).

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Click on File | Options.
  2. At the left-hand side click the Advanced option.
  3. Scroll through the options until you see the Display section.
