Microsoft Word as an Editor's Everyday Tool - For Intermediate Users

Date: July 18, 2024

Time: 4-5 p.m. ET


In veterinary medicine, many veterinarians like me and my nurses use an ultrasound machine to identify a pet's urinary bladder and obtain a urine sample. However, the ultrasound machine can be used for so much more--we can use it to look at other organs like the liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenal glands, small and large intestine, and pancreas; yet, many of us do not owing to various reasons: overwhelmed about where to begin, unsure whether we are going to do something right, we make do with what we know and can get by with what we know, etc.

Our use of Microsoft Word is similar. We use only a small amount of its functionality--comfortably--yet our editorial knowledgebase and productivity can be enhanced by learning and implementing features in Word, features we can use everyday. We simply need to know about these features and to start to use them. The goal of this webcast is to demonstrate these features to take us to the next level of comfortability with Word.
