Carol’s Ramblings

Well here we are folks. What a difficult time we are having around the globe! A very scary time indeed, but please do not lose your sense of decency and kindness. It is especially important at times such as these.  Be considerate of others – wash your hands often and for 20 seconds each time – use bar soap when you do so. Only use hand sanitizer when it is the only thing available and then wash with bar soap as soon as you can. Keep your hands off of your face.  And stay away from other people. I know this is all common sense but I would remiss if I did not remind you.

Ok, I am off my soapbox now. I have what I think are very useful articles for you this month and I hope that you agree with me. If there is anything special you would like to see covered in the future, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

Until next time, please, please take care of you!!

How To Replace Manual Line Breaks With Paragraghs

As some of you know, I knit for relaxation and I like to donate some of my handmade goods to different charities, so I am always on the lookout for free patterns to use.  There are many available if you look. But it drives me absolutely mad when I find a pattern on the internet and copy and paste it in Word, and it turns out that it was created with manual line breaks instead of paragraphs.  I know I’m a wonk but we all have certain ways of doing things, and mine just happens to be the right way!

Now I just copy and paste and automatically fix this problem every time.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Highlight your entire document.
  2. Click CTRL + H to open Find and Replace.

 

find-and-replace

  1. On the bottom, click on Special.
  2. In the Find area, select Manual Line Break.

manual-line-break

  1. In the Replace box, use the same process as above and select Paragraph mark.
  2. Click Replace All.

Easy peasy and you now have a document that is easy to maneuver and you can set space before or after, etc.

How To Control Automatic Capitalization In Word

Have you ever been  flying across your keyboard trying to get a document finished, and then you look up and notice that Word has  capitalized words for you that you didn’t intend to be capitalized? Good old Word is trying to help you and usually does this when it thinks you are starting a new sentence. I get it. This can be very aggravating – especially when you are in a hurry. So if this is a problem for you, you can make Word stop being so helpful if you like!

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Press File | Options.
  2. At the left-hand side of the dialog  that appears, click Proofing.
  3. Click AutoCorrect Options to display the AutoCorrect dialog.
  4. Be certain  the AutoCorrect tab is displayed

auto-correct

  1. Delete Capitalize First Letter of Sentences .
  2. Click OK.

Problem solved!
