Subject:MS Word Nifty II
Posted by:bride.
Time:2:52 pm.

Okay, since no one is posting anything, I figured it's my turn again =)

In Microsoft Word, you can search for formatting as well as just text.

Go to Edit->Find and you should get the "Find and Replace" pop-up box. Press the "More" button to the left of the "Find Next". You'll get a bunch of options like "Match case", "Find whole words only", etc.

The nifty part is the two buttons below that. The "Format" and the "Special" buttons. The "Format" button lets you find text with specific formatting - eg. if you wanted to find the word "dog" that's in bold. The "Special" button gives you a list of all the special characters to find.

Once, I needed to add a small bit of extra data to the end of each line in a text file. I was working at a customer's site where I didn't have access to a UNIX machine to quickly whip it up in the vi editor.

I went to Tools->Options; in the View tab, turned on All Formatting Marks. Then in the Find and Replace, I selected the "Paragraph Mark" from "Special". This puts a "^p" into the "Find" line. Then I typed in the text I wanted to add in the "Replace" line.

This went through and looked for the Paragraph Mark (which was at the end of every line) and replaced it with my text. Effectively, this added whatever I wanted to the end of each line.

Subject:QuarkXPress Nifty
Posted by:bride.
Time:4:28 pm.

Try this in a new QuarkXPress 4.0 document on your Mac:

1. Draw a small rectangle textbox in the middle of a spread.

2. Use the Crosshair tool to select the box.

3. Hold down the Shift-Option-Command keys at the same time and hit Delete.

=) It also works in QXP 4.0 for Windows with Shift-CTRL-ALT, but it's not as funny in Windows...

[Update - 1721h]

Try doing it 5 times in a row. Thanks fanless =)

for my first post... i'd like to share a fun fact:

mint ice cream stimulates the blood flow in the pelvic region, thusly acting as an aphrodisiac.

how was that?

and those gel candles..when they melt and you stick your finger in them.. they leave gel on you. go figure.

Hullo! Thought I'd post a non-LJ Nifty here =) I've known about this for years and it's never ceased to amaze people when I tell them.

  • In MS Word, open up a document that you already have going.
  • Put your cursor somewhere top-left-ish.
  • Hold down SHIFT and ALT, then click somewhere bottom-right-ish.
  • Drag your mouse around a little to see what happens =)
  • Stop somewhere, copy and paste and see what happens.

Enjoy =)

I have other Word and Excel nifties too, but I'll let other people have a turn first =)
