If you’re generally comfortable with MS Word’s basic formatting functions and routinely use Track Changes while editing, then this may be the workshop you need to take you to the next level of onscreen editing expertise. Our workshop for maximum twenty people will address the following MS Word advanced functions and more: Creating and formatting contents and figures tables, creating macros, using the cross-referencing tool, applying styles, using templates, and wildcard searches.

Registrants must bring their own laptop computers and ensure that a version of Microsoft Word has been installed. Both Mac and PC versions of Word can be accommodated.
