Microsoft Word for Editors and Writers: Seven Tips to Boost Productivity

Event Date: 5th May 2018

AMPA is pleased to co-host a workshop with Editors Calgary and the Society for Technical Communicators on May 5 (9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.). This fast-paced, half-day event will introduce you to the Microsoft Word tools that will supercharge your writing and editing time. Be challenged by advanced keyboard shortcuts, auto-correct and auto-text, find and replace, templates and macros. The workshop begins with a hands-on test of your keyboard shortcut skills.

The instructor will be using MS Word 2016 on a Windows 10 operating system. Participants should have MS Word versions of 2010 or later with Windows 7 or higher. Mac users should be familiar enough with their operating system and Word for Mac that they can adapt to what is taught on a PC. For example, some keyboard shortcuts and menu items will be different on a Mac.

Bring your laptop and power cord, and be sure to have a mouse. Coffee and light snacks provided
