Subject: Best Word trick I've learned this week
...I just passed this on to a friend who's all cranky about having to
work with Word, and it made her happy, so I thought I'd share it with
all of you:
On Word's Tools>Options>View tab, at Outline and Normal options, there's
a field for "Style area width". If you set that to 1 inch (or something
greater than zero), when you are in Normal or Outline mode you can see,
listed down the side of the page, the styles all the paragraphs are in.
Once the Styles area is >0, you can drag the bar to adjust the size.
