Are you confident of your editorial skills but less sure that you’re making the most of your computer? Want to learn shortcuts, tools, and tricks for working more effectively with Microsoft Word? Whether you work on staff or as a freelancer, this workshop will show you how to streamline your editorial process by making electronic editing faster, more accurate, and even more fun.

You’ll learn how to customize global searches, toolbars, keyboard shortcuts, and macros for the tasks you perform most often, as well as track changes, make queries, and add comments—all electronically. You won’t believe how much more your computer can do for you!

Note: This fast-paced workshop is taught through demonstration in Word 2010 for PC; variations for other Word versions will also be discussed. Handouts will provide step-by-step guides to help participants apply new techniques to the work they do every day. Participants will not have time to practice at the workshop, so bringing a laptop is not recommended.
