 word.pngIn March, 2015, an AIR member recommended Scott Hanselman’s YouTube video  How to REALLY use Microsoft Word: Tabs and Indents.   

"I learned how to use Microsoft Word a long time ago and since that time I haven’t really kept up my skills and knowledge on how to properly use it.  This video covers some common Word tools everyone uses – tabs and indents.  If you are creating documents on your own – vitae, manuals, etc., using the proper software formatting tool is helpful.  If you are collaborating with colleagues, on the other hand, proper use of these items is important.  How many of us align text within a document by pressing the spacebar or tabbing over ad infinitum?  As Scott points out, as soon as someone changes the font size or style, the formatting is all off. I learned how to use Microsoft Word a long time ago and since that time I haven’t really kept up my skills and knowledge on how to properly use it.  This video covers some common Word tools everyone uses – tabs and indents.  If you are creating documents on your own – vitae, manuals, etc., using the proper software formatting tool is helpful.  If you are collaborating with colleagues, on the other hand, proper use of these items is important.  How many of us align text within a document by pressing the spacebar or tabbing over ad infinitum?  As Scott points out, as soon as someone changes the font size or style, the formatting is all off. The 18-minute video is delivered in a very clear manner."
