I thought it might be fun and interesting if I occasionally offered some tips and tricks for MS Word. They will vary from beginner to advanced so that nobody will be left out.

Feel free to submit your own tips. Just create a new thread with "Tip" somewhere in the thread title.

Below, you'll find an Index of Tips and Tricks on this forum. Enjoy!
