Most of us create documents that contain only text, but when we illustrate that text with graphics, it can help get our message across. But the problem is that most of us don't have the design skills to easily enhance our documents, since our first priority is on getting the text right.
The good news is that by using Microsoft Office 2007's SmartArt graphics, we can create designer-quality illustrations with just a few clicks of a mouse.
I answered this question for one of our libraries a couple of days ago, and figured it might be something more of you wondered about, so will share what I found with you all...
Lori asked, "Is there a way to only print the first page of an email? I’m in Outlook 2007. If I hit the printer icon I get everything. But even if I go into File—Print, my only option is a Memo Style (which still ends up printing everything). I am able to select just the even or odd pages, but a couple of my emails have long conversations and I only need the first page."
Flags in Outlook are colorful reminders you can add to email messages that require action for followup. Outlook offers several options for setting flags to complement the way you work.
Flagged items will turn red as a visual reminder, and you can also set a flag to give you a popup reminder. They also appear in the To-Do Bar, where you can easily see what actions you need to take each day.
I just found out about an easy way to create a table in Microsoft Word — all you do is type +----+ and press the enter key, and Word will automatically insert a table. The plus sign + symbol indicates a column break, and the hyphen – symbols indicate the width of the column in the table.
Once created, you can use your mouse to drag the column widths to adjust them to fit.
When adding data to cells in the table, you can tab from one column to the next.
The statistics you receive every week are for your library & others, and wastes lots of paper when you print it out? You want to annotate a memo you just got without creating a new message? That email message you received really needs a more descriptive subject line?
