With the kickstand out, Type Cover keyboard deployed, and Word fired up, the Surface is an absolute joy to use. It's a truly, almost unfathomably good computing experience. I instantly went from "meh, what's the point of this thing?" to "OMG - this is the best device ever!"
That’s interesting … there’s a lot of people who’s biggest problem with tablets is the difficulty of getting their new ideas into it … since everyone agrees that the iPad is a great way to get older ideas out.
Here’s an example of the problem. In the linked file, the header on page 87 is at the top of a portrait page, and on page 88 it is at the top of a landscape page. But if you print those two pages out and bundle them with the pages all in portrait, the header is in two different spots.
The workaround is bizarre, but it works. Here goes:
Open your header for editing (ALT N H E).
Insert a text box (ALT N X).
Cut the header that isn’t where you want it, and paste it inside the text box.
Rotate the text inside the text box (ALT J X G).
Now here’s the weird part. Drag the text box outside of the header to wherever you want it on your page. That text box is still part of your header, but it doesn’t appear in your header.
As long as the landscape pages are in their own section, with “link to previous” turned off, this methods works like a charm.
A very cool tip from Susan Harkins at TechRepublic for automating a statement that says what follows applies to a week, indexed by a date within the week:
This post made in the week of October 24
It requires a macro though.
Entering dates in Word is easy-calculating dates is another matter. If all the conditions are just right, a nested field will work, but there are no guarantees; date fields just aren’t flexible enough to always handle all possibilities. A macro is the best way to go.
The macro is copied into your normal template in Word. You can modify it to give the date for some other day of the week if you like.
Here’s how I’d use this. Every semester I have to produce outlines for classes that say something like “In the week of October 24th we’ll be covering Chapters 15 and 16”. The problem is that October 24th isn’t Monday every Fall semester, so if I were to reuse this document — which is the whole point of having class outlines — I’d have to change that date every year.
