repeat after me

2 Oct

I’ve been meaning to write a blog for a while. I came up with the idea (although probably not a very original one), but I hope to keep it interesting and relevant to anyone who comes across it.

The goal of this blog is to allow me to share what I’ve learned today (or in the past, since I’ve lived about 8025 days already) whether it’s related to something I’ve learned at school, something from work, or something about life. It won’t be plain facts or statements, but more how-to’s that I have found to be very helpful in my own life. I’ve always been very appreciative of other people’s blogs for providing me with information about their favourite restaurants, fashion tips or how-to-do’s and I figured it was time for me to give back to the online community.

I plan on posting at least one new thing/how-to a day and if you’ve found my how-to to be useful, please let me know!

When I worked full-time, now I am back to school and finishing up my final year, I was often given the task of formatting documents. I don’t mind formatting because I am a detail-oriented type person, but once you’ve been formatting the same document for an hour, it can get quite repetitive and brain numbing. I can be lazy sometimes and I knew that had to be an easier way of formatting the same thing over and over again in Word (e.g bolding certain words, underlining, changing the font size of paragraphs between larger headers, etc.), so I googled. Maybe you googled and ended up here.

To repeat your last action in Microsoft Word (and other MS Office programs except Excel) press: F4. It will repeat pretty much any action and might be the only function you ever press. If you are a Mac user, try pressing Command + Y. Now repeat to your heart’s content.
