Let’s try a new category for this blog – yes I know I used a magic number
Since I’ve been lacking posts lately.. I thought I’ll try something new. Today at work I showed this to my co-worker, and he didn’t know, I’ve also shown a few people out of work too and they didn’t know this either.
Well now they do, and perhaps their mind was blown away.
Today’s mind.blown(i) = true; where ‘i’ is an integer is credited to Ben Wong for showing me.
It will be about..
Microsoft Word (mainly, but not limited to: 2003 and 2007 versions).
So we’re all familiar with this application, we probably use it almost on a daily basis for whatever reason.
Here’s a little trick that might become useful – especially since nowadays most monitors are widescreens.
So let’s say.. we’re working on this document – and it’s currently opened on page 1:
So let’s say we need to type some stuff about this graph, so we type, type, type.. eventually you’re going to run the graph off the screen.
So.. Did you know that you can split the screen so that you can view two sections of the document and edit them simultaneously?
Click and drag down the bar near the top right corner.
Get about half way – half half, fair-ish..
What’s special about this is that you can adjust the views of each section independently of each other – of course any changes will be visible in both views.
However this allows you to have say the top section zoomed into at 200% and the bottom kept at 100% or whatever.
Of course the main advantage of this is to have different sections of the document being displayed so it’s very useful for work that requires referencing of content from an earlier/later section.
To return back to the original view, click and drag the bar back to the top, and it’ll disappear~
And that is the first mind.blown(0) = true; I hope this was helpful 🙂
P.S. This works for Excel too~
