Around the Web: Living with Microsoft WordSeptember 13th, 2007 · One comment
Somehow I missed this article that was posted on Academic Productivity earlier in August. It deals with an application that we all use, but few of us really understand: Microsoft Word.
Crucially, this article explains features I’ve always seen, nested in the menu bar, but never really knew what they did. For example, did you know that by simply changing your current “Style” you can change the look of your entire document? Or that there is an easy way to correctly reference tables and figures — even if their ordering in the paper keeps changing?
Great stuff. Only wish I had read it three years ago, before I arrived at MIT and made the full time switch over to Nerd Word — otherwise known as LaTex.
