Highlighter v. Background Color

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

It must be Word Week here at Wambooli, because this is the second Microsoft Word post in a row. (And, yes, a third one is coming Friday.) Today’s post concerns a question I’ve pondered before: Why does Word feature a Highlighter command?

A Weird One in Word

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

One of the most common questions I get regarding Microsoft Word is how to remove a “line” from text. The problem ranks high because not everything you call a “line” is what Word calls a “line.”

Image Captions in Word

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

Home Screen Icon Density

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

I bought the Galaxy Note “phablet” phone when it first came out. The sucker was huge! The display was big and easy to see. Alas, the icon spread (rows and columns) on the Home screen was the same ratio as for other Android phones, a paltry four icons wide by five tall. That was disappointing.

How to Fix the Economy

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

In his latest book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society, author Jeremy Rifkin describes the effects of not having to pay for anything. Like me, I’m sure he’s aware that his book definitely falls into that category. If I wanted to not pay for a copy, I could: Just find the book on a bittorrent and download it “free.”

No Help For You

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

“Hello, Sears? I need repair on my washing machine. No, I didn’t buy it. I just stole it out of one of your stores. Even so, I’m demanding that you help me and provide warranty service.”

Create a Signature AutoText Entry

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

AutoText was a great Word feature that was somehow shoved to the side with Word 2010 and then partially buried in Word 2013. It’s still available, but not that obvious or easy to get to.

12 Hours v. 24 hours

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

It’s very military. “Then I’ll see you at 16:00,” which he pronounces as “sixteen hundred.” What the hell time is that?
