Saving All at Once

Friday, May 01, 2009 View Comments Comments (0)
If you're about to rush off to a meeting, or need to restart your computer, or have some other reason for wanting to save all your open Word documents, you can do so all at once with a "Save Al"” command.
 
To find it, press the Shift key as you click the File menu, and the menu will display the Save All and Close All commands.
 
You can also put these commands directly on the menu or toolbar.  Go to Tools and then Customize.  Click the Commands tab.  Select the File toolbar, scroll down to the Save All item, then drag it to the menu or toolbar you prefer.

Register for the training on the Volunteer manager, and you’ll be able to participate at the special price of $14.95 per connection (that's $10 off the regular price).  But even more important, you'll learn how the Volunteer Manager can get you connected to the needs of your community as well as allow you to manage volunteer opportunities within your own organization.
 
Is Your Church a Service Station?

To attend this event, you must have Internet and phone access. You will receive an on-screen confirmation as well as a confirmation email with attendance information upon registering. Please print the on-screen confirmation and check your junk/spam mail folder for the email confirmation.
 

Selecting Blocks of Text

Tuesday, April 21, 2009 View Comments Comments (0)
You may be familiar with the "Select All" option in the Word edit toolbar.  But have you ever wondered if there's a way to "Select Most?"  You can do that – select all, most or some text – with a simple process.  Give a quick click on your cursor at the place you want the selection to start.  Then, at the place you want it to end, press the shift key and click the mouse again.
 
Another option:  press the shift key, then one of the arrow keys.  Continue pressing the arrow key until you reach your endpoint.  The text selects based on the direction of the arrow key you choose.

Viewing Paragraph Markings

Friday, April 03, 2009 View Comments Comments (0)
When does one paragraph end and another begin?  In some Word documents – if spacing is uneven or incorrect – it's not easy to tell.  To find out, use the paragraph markings tool.  Look for the paragraph icon in the toolbar (¶) and click "Show/Hide".  You'll see paragraph markings as well as spaces between words and sentences.  To disable it, click the "Show/Hide" button again.

Topic:  Helpful Hints and Tips for Creating Great Pages
Tuesday, April 7, 10 – 11 a.m. CT
 
Make your plans to join us via Internet and telephone for an important web session on creating great pages.
 
The Pages manager is perhaps the most important manager within your site. It is certainly used more than any other manager. It is, after all, where most of the pages in your site are created and maintained. In this session, we'll look at the various capabilities of the Pages manager, including search-friendly page setup as well as tools on the editor toolbar such as hyperlinks, images, and tables.
 

Preview - and Edit if Needed

Friday, March 27, 2009 View Comments Comments (0)
When using the Print Preview icon in Microsoft Word and you see one last change you'd like to make, you can do so right where you are.  Print Preview is the magnifying glass and paper next to the print icon, and you use this tool to know how your work will appear on paper once it's printed.  But you can also do more there than just catch a preview.   If you've got one more thing to add or change, simply click the magnifier icon within Print Preview, and the zoom tool will turn into an "I" beam that allows changes.  Make your edit, send it to the printer – and don't forget to save.
 

Giving Time

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 View Comments Comments (0)
For many of us, time seems like such a precious commodity.  We get the feeling that there's so little left to do the things that matter.  And yet the act of giving time can often help us realize that we had a lot more to offer than we thought we did.  The rewards for what we "give up" are paid back many times over through enriching experiences and relationship building.
 
If you long to participate in meaningful activities, first make the choice to look for opportunity.  You can set aside an hour a week, a weekend a quarter, a week a year … whatever schedule you feel confident that you can follow.  Next, think about logical connections.  Can you team with co-workers, friends, family, a Sunday school class?  Then start your search for worthy deeds.  Do you want to donate food or clothing?  Give blood?  Help with a car-washing fundraiser?  Serve as a weekend tour guide for a local museum or historic site?  Give of your professional abilities to those in need?

Can't find an organization meeting a particular need? Don't be shy about starting something new or planning activities that require more than yourself. It's very rewarding to have others participate with you and remember you can use the Volunteer manager in your website Control Panel, along with HelpRoot.com, to help you find participants and organize your activities and events, whether local or global.
 
The opportunities are as limitless as your creativity and imagination – and as unending as those in your community who have a need that you can help meet.
