Barron Henley, Affinity Consulting, will teach you how to control Word, instead of Word controlling you!
When legal instruments require complex formatting, most Word users struggle to get the document to look the way they want. Users often describe it as a “wrestling match” or having to “outsmart the program.” Some advanced features like automatic paragraph numbering, table of contents, and tables of authority seem inaccessible or broke. The good news is that once you understand how Word works, it is completely controllable. Barron can get you to that place. Learn the techniques you need to help you quickly create content and avoid costly time spent beating the text into submission.
This course is designed with the daily Microsoft Word user in mind. If you can think of something you wish Word could do when it comes to generating complicated or lengthy documents, it can be done. Learn to avoid the “how do I fix this mess?” issues before they occur.
In addition, attendees will have access to a Microsoft Word manual with class registration.
You are encouraged to follow along with the exercises, however, this class is taught using Word 365 for Windows. The Mac version of Word is cosmetically different, but a full Word for Mac manual is available as part of this class. Word for iPad, Android, Chromebooks, and the online version of Word are ALL inappropriate versions for this class.
