Wow! I Didn’t Know You Could Do That in Word!

Microsoft Word is ubiquitous and it’s not going anywhere. Technology companies use it. Health care organizations use it. Government entities use it. And, these industries use it for everything—from reports to posters, user guides to fact sheets, emails to resumes. Rather than curse Word, let’s embrace Word and celebrate its capabilities, especially the lesser known gem know-hows that make us look like communication superstars. In this session, I’ll demonstrate 20 cool tips and tricks that will dazzle your clients, save you hundreds of hours work, and make you say, “Cool! I didn’t know you could do that in Word!”

For example, did you know that you can create a mini TOC in each section of your Word document with just a few clicks? Did you know that you can quickly generate ipsum lorem text to test your formatting and design? Did you know that Word’s Copy/Paste function has a huge clipboard where you can store loads of snippets and graphics? I’ll show you these tricks and 17 others that will dazzle and aid. After this, session, you might even love Word.

I registered for a webinar and/or an online course, but cannot attend at that time. Will I receive a refund?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar and/or an online course, the cost is transferable to a future event, but is not refundable. Online registration closes one-two business days before the education event begins.

I want to take a specific course that isn't listed online. Will it be offered in the future?

STC rotates its courses every year as we try to offer the most popular ones within the first half of the year. Online courses are subject to change or are offered more than once per quarter. If a course is not listed, STC will offer it again in the following year.
