Dear Colleague:

You’re probably wondering: Why can’t Microsoft leave well enough alone?

They keep changing Word every few years. You were perfectly happy with Word 1997 … or 2000 … or 2003. Then Word 2007 came around with a radical new look. And Word 2010 added even more changes.

Those changes are supposed to be improvements – but they can’t help you if you don’t know how to use them. And if you can’t find the commands or buttons or tabs you were used to, your new version of Word may make you less productive while you’re learning your way around.
But you can easily get up to speed with the latest version of Word – then take your performance to a whole new level. Simply follow the training in Microsoft Word 2010: Tips and Techniques to Boost Productivity.
In just 20 concise pages, this Executive Summary puts you in command of Word 2010. Almost all of the advice applies to Word 2007 as well. You’ll discover:
  • How to find the features you want in the Word 2010 interface – everything’s in there, you just need to know where to look
  • Formatting tips that save hours of tweaking and let you change your mind without redoing the whole document
  • Page layout techniques to whip complex documents into shape – watermarks, headers, footers, section breaks – they’re all a breeze
  • Time-saving Quick Parts and Macros so you can avoid reinventing the wheel every time you use a familiar document
  • How to add rich content like screenshots and diagrams, because Word is about more than just words
  • Collaborative features like document protection and tracking changes, so you can invite comments without losing control
The easy-to-follow text is enhanced with 30 screen captures to illuminate key points. Whether you’re an admin who spends half the day in Word or a C-level executive who writes a few memos a week, you’re sure to benefit from the tips and techniques in Microsoft Word 2010.

When this Executive Summary takes your productivity to new heights, you can thank our expert, Melissa Esquibel.

A Microsoft® Certified Trainer, Melissa is uniquely qualified to educate you, with more than 25 years of experience in both information technology and training. She has a knack for combining words and visuals in a way that cuts through confusion and makes learning fast, easy and enjoyable.

Melissa originally presented this training as one of our popular live webinars. We asked her to pack that content into an Executive Summary, so all the tips and techniques are instantly available whenever you need them. You even get the audience Q&A.

Melissa begins by introducing you to THE NEW INTERFACE. Meet the new Word, not the same as the old Word:
  • Tabs, Groups and Buttons. The Help button is where it’s always been, but when you click it, the responses are now arranged according to Tabs, Groups and Buttons. Melissa deciphers this new jargon for you.
  • Customizing Your Word Experience. You have two ways to make Word your program: the Quick Access Toolbar and Customize Ribbon. Detailed screenshots help you choose your favorite.
  • Uncovering Shortcuts. Good news: You can use most of the shortcuts you’re used to. It gets even better when you know the new ribbon shortcuts.
Once you’re familiar with the interface, you’re ready for FORMATTING TIPS & TRICKS. If you haven’t used them in the past, now is the time to master these time-savers.
  • Paragraph Line Spacing. To improve readability, the default line spacing is now 1.15 instead of single spacing, with 10 points added between paragraphs. If you like it that way, fine. If you want to go back to the old way, Melissa shows you how.
  • Styles. More good news: Using Styles is easier than ever in Word 2010. Whether you want to apply a heading style to a document section or chapter … add a table of contents … or translate from Word to PowerPoint, it’s easy with Melissa’s guidance.
  • Themes. Want to choose the font sets, colors and layout of your document? Select a preset theme and tweak it as you please. Then save it as your own custom theme to use again and again. You’ll even learn how to “try on” a theme and see how it affects your document, before you carve it in stone.

Want more reasons to order Microsoft Word 2010? Good, because Melissa keeps the tips and techniques coming.

Microsoft Word 2010 continues boosting your productivity with PAGE LAYOUT TOOLS. You’ll learn to work with:
  • Margins. Lots of choices here, with several presets. Or go to Custom Margins and – what else? – Microsoft Word 2010customize your margins.
  • Watermarks. Again, you have presets to choose from, such as “Confidential” or “Do Not Copy,” as well as the option to customize.
  • Section & Page Breaks. Unlike with older versions of Word, you’ll find these commands in one of the tabs. Discover how to add frequently used commands to your Quick Access Toolbar, too.
  • Columns. Here’s another area where Word 2010 has made things easier compared to older versions. You’re gonna love this.
  • Header and Footers. Uh-oh. Word 2010 has put these commands in a weird place. Melissa helps you find them – and shows you how to make adjustments without using the buttons at all.
As you customize various elements in Word, you’ll want to build on them instead of recreating them. Melissa gives you the keys to REPEATING SUCCESS:
  • Quick Parts. Names, dates, authors, objects and more can be customized and saved for easy insertion into your Word document. Less keystroking means getting more done.
  • Macros. You may be familiar with these from previous versions of Word. But did you ever really master Macros? Melissa teaches you the “4 Rs” of using Macros, and explains why keyboard shortcuts are better than using your mouse.
  • Mail Merge. Combine Outlook contacts, Excel worksheets and other lists with frequently used documents to create hundreds of letters, envelopes or labels as easily as one.
Last but definitely not least, there’s DOCUMENT PROTECTION AND TRACKING CHANGES:
  • Passwords. Adding passwords to documents remained the same for years and years, but with Word 2010, things changed. Better get up to speed on this. You’ll want to understand the Restrict Formatting and Editing function, too.
  • Track Changes. How do you know what has been done to a document, and who did it? Are there comments? Can you change the appearance of these items? Answers in the Summary.
  • Special Note for SharePoint Users. When you access Word 2010 documents from SharePoint 2010, the default method is co-authorship. In other words, documents can be opened by several people and edited simultaneously. Want to see who’s changing your document? Want the power to accept or reject those changes? Get the Executive Summary and take control.

Microsoft Word 2010: Tips and Techniques to Boost Productivity gives you all the content from the live webinar – yes, even the audience Q&A. All with a money-back guarantee.

A great thing about Melissa’s live webinars: The audience asks questions that bring out even more of her insights. So we included them in your Executive Summary. You’ll find her answers regarding:
  • How to customize AutoCorrect entries. For example, when you type the letter C in parentheses, it automatically changes to the copyright symbol. What if you don’t want that to happen? You’ll learn how to fix the function permanently, and how to undo AutoCorrect as you’re typing.
  • How to find the hidden options for Font and Page Setup. Don’t worry, the options you used in older versions are still available in the 2010 version. You just need to know where they’re hiding.
  • How to create a PDF from a Word document. Hooray! Now you can do this in Word. No need to buy separate software.
  • How to compare two documents to see what changes were made, even if Track Changes wasn’t used. Use the Compare function. The resulting screen can get messy, but Melissa shows you how to simplify it.
  • Where to find the Form tools on the new ribbon. The answer involves the Developer Tab, Customize Ribbon and Legacy Tools. It sounds complicated, but you’ll have step-by-step instructions.
Remember when we said this Executive Summary is just 20 pages long? You may be thinking that was a typo, considering all the tips and techniques mentioned above. But it’s no typo – you’ll find everything in 20 pages. Microsoft Word 2010This concise training wastes no time in showing you how to save time!
Let me add a few more words – about value. Melissa’s live webinar on this subject cost $197, a price attendees gladly paid. With this Executive Summary, you’ll receive the same content … right down to the audience Q&A … with dozens of screenshots for easy comprehension … for just a fraction of the price. Microsoft Word 2010: Tips and Techniques to Boost Productivity is truly a bargain.
One more thing: You have my money-back guarantee. If the Executive Summary isn’t everything promised … if it doesn’t start boosting your productivity on day one … I’ll give you a full refund – with no conditions and no questions asked.

Your risk is absolutely zero. But then, so is mine – because you’ll love this training! Go ahead, give it a try.

Regards,

Phillip Ash
