Carol’s Ramblings

February is almost gone!  And we have just celebrated Valentine’s Day.  Now it’s just a slow march to Spring time.  It will not be too long.  I have already had hoards of Robin Red Breasts in my yard and the tulips are above ground.  I cannot wait!

I hope you had a nice Valentine celebration.  Whether you have a sweetheart or not you can still celebrate – do something kind for a stranger or donate to a charity or volunteer.  After all, the day is all about love and if those things I just mentioned do not reek of love, I don’t know what does!

Enjoy the articles and until next time, take care of you!

How to Step Through Fields In Documents

If you use fields in your documents, there might be times when you would like to select the fields quickly.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • To step forward to the next field in your document, press F11.
  • To step backwards to the previous field in your document, press Shift+F11.

When you reach the last field in your document, pressing F11 again does not cycle around to the first field in the file. Similarly, if you are moving backward and reach the first field in the document, Shift+F11 won’t cycle to the end of the document.

How To Create One Off Labels in Word

We all know Word is a versatile program. One great feature of  Word is creating mailing labels. lots of folks, myself included,  create mailing labels using the Mail Merge feature of Word, which pulls names and addresses from a data source and formats them for printing on labels.

But sometimes you just don’t need all that. Suppose you only need  a couple labels to go on a one time mailing? There is a very quick way to handle this instance in Word.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Display the Mailings tab of your Ribbon.
  2. Select Labels near the left side of your Ribbon, in the  Create group to display the Labels tab of the Envelopes and Labels dialog box.

mailing-labels

  1. If you need to change the type of labels on which you are printing, just click on Options and use the dialog box to select what you need.
  2. Make certain the Use Return Address check box is cleared.
  3. If there is anything in the Address box, delete it.
  4. Make sure Full Page of the Same Label is selected.
  5. Click on New Document. The dialog box will close and Word will create a new document consisting of blank labels.

Word formats labels using tables. Each cell of the table corresponds to a single label. To enter your label information, just position your cursor in the desired label (cell) and start keying in the information.

Once you are finished entering and formatting your label information, you can print your print your labels, save them if you like , or  delete the document.
