Tip of the Two Weeks

Posted by TetonTrekker on January 13, 2018 in Fly By Posting |

Never make yourself so indispensable you can not take a vacation.

You should be a valuable asset to your employer but if no one else can do your job duties while you are away, you may never get a vacation. Keep an up-to-date list of duties and instructions for your relief. If you have no relief, delegate, bring gifts.

Showing the Formatting Marks to Fix Layout in Word Docs

Have you ever been editing a MS Word Document and the layout keeps hopping around? Do you have one of those documents that print extra blank pages? Chances are good it’s a formatting problem.

Showing all the formatting marks makes it easy to identify problems and delete extra formatting. I first learned this trick on Word Perfect. Give it a try.

On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the formatting icon to toggle Show/Hide. The background of the formatting  button is shaded when it’s turned on.

Now your document will show paragraph marks ¶, tab marks , spaces (gray dots), and other hidden formatting. Carefully review and delete unwanted formatting. If your document is printing blank pages scroll to the bottom of the page and delete all the hidden formatting marks up to the last line of your document.

If you have never used this tool I recommend saving a copy of your document prior to deleting extra formatting.

Happy Year End Fellow Office Gurus!

{Don’t worry, I won’t hurt you
I only want you to have some fun}

I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin’, could’ve sworn it was 1099 day
The sky was all purple, there were bookkeepers runnin’ everywhere
Tryin’ to run from the migraines, you know I didn’t even care

Say say one thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s ten ninety-nine

#041 Send Them a Postcard

Posted by TetonTrekker on December 30, 2017 in Internet, Morning Coffee |

Privacy is an Illusion I don’t ever type anything on an email I would not write on the back of a postcard.” Several years ago, before social media, I was having a conversation with a coworker about a troublesome inter-office email that got passed around, and that was her response. It describes it perfectly, especially […]
