Instruction is offered on the following topics:
Tracking changes and adding comments allows you to pass a document back and forth between recipients and see the changes made by each one. It also allows each editor to make comments in the side margin. This class is offered Friday, May 20, 2011 at 11 a.m. CDT
Working with styles is a very important feature of Word. It allows you to change all the text of a certain style with one click rather than having to select each instance individually. You cannot create a hyperlinked table of contents without first setting the styles for these headings. This group teleclass is offered on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 3 p.m. CDT
Paragraph Spacing: You hit the return key and there's too much space between the text, so you tab or space to the end of a line rather than pressing the Enter key. In this class you will learn to adjust paragraph indentations, set the distance between paragraphs, bullet points, and numbered lists. Learn to alphabetically sort a long list of text. This group teleclass is being offered June 23, 2011 at 7 p.m. CDT
Working with Text: Apply or remove highlighting, change font types, size, and colors; and modify text for bold, italic, underline, superscript, and subscript. This group class is being offered Tuesday, June 28 at 6 p.m. CDT.
Insert and format page numbers in the headers or footers of your document. This is a basic class that leads into learning about section breaks (see next class below). This group teleclass is being offered Friday, July 8 at 11 a.m. CDT
Creating section breaks between chapters. A must-have class for authors who want to format their own books. This is an hour-long class due to the intricacies of this feature. You will learn how to create a different first page, and unique odd/even pages., allowing you to have your chapter heading on one side of the page and your book title on the other side. This group teleclass is being offered Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 6 p.m. CDT.
Working Faster. Use format painter; manage multiple copied items on your clipboard; use keyboard shortcuts; record macros; create hyperlinks and bookmarks to make getting around in your document much faster and easier. This group teleclass is being offered Thursday, July 21, 2011 at 2 p.m. CDT
Formatting Graphics. Work with pictures, shapes, and graphics so the text wraps around an image; create colored borders of varying weight around images; work with WordArt, clip art, drop case, and text boxes; set margins, page size, backgrounds, watermarks, and borders. Due to the amount of material covered, this class is one hour long. This group teleclass is being offered Friday, July 29, 2011 at 11 a.m. CDT
If your document is too long, has too many words or is too verbose, you may want to shorten it without losing the main thoughts. You can set the percentage to hide or show more or less of your document using the Auto Summary Feature. This group teleclass is being offered Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 6 p.m. CDT.
If there is a topic you want specific help with, Yvonne will work with you individually by the hour or half-hour.
