Wrap Text Around a Picture

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

When you stick a picture into a document, Word chooses the inline with text layout option. That’s fine for simple images and it’s pretty easy to understand and format. When you need to get fancy, and take your document formatting up a notch, you choose another layout option for the image.

Adding a Simple Image Caption

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

In an earlier post, I made a video on how to stick an image into a document at a simple level. At the same basic level, you can quickly add a caption below the image. It’s not a clever trick, but it’s something that requires a few extra steps when you want to do it correctly.

A Picture in Your Document

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

More Fill-In-The-Blanks for Word

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

One of my most popular YouTube videos explains how to create a fill-in-the-blanks item in Word. The technique demonstrates how to add a blank line to a document, but it really works best only when you’re printing a document. For adding a fill-in-the-blanks item in a document electronically, you need to use something called a Content Control.

Vertically Aligning a Page

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Aligning a paragraph of text left-to-right is cinchy in Word. The Center command (shortcut Ctrl+E) shoves an equal amount of space to the left and right of a paragraph or a single line of text. If you want that paragraph to be aligned equal distance from the top and bottom of the page, then more work is required.

Although it’s a word processor, Word has Excel-like formulas you can slap down into a table. These formulas assist you with mathematical puzzles that would otherwise be daunting.

Exploring Android Storage with ASTRO

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Unlike a computer, your Android device is app-oriented. The notion of a file manager app is really an example of forcing computer-think onto a mobile device. File management is possible, but it’s rather clunky.

Android Update Ready?

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Last week I wrote how you can’t force an Android OS update. You can’t even be guaranteed that your phone or tablet will ever see an Android update. That scintilla of truth doesn’t prevent people like me from trying.
