You like the look, especially your headings, which are 14 pt. Bookman Old Style, centered, green, and bold, with a nice subtle shadow. Thirty minutes before you're supposed to present the report, you need to add four new sections to the report.

You spend the next two wishing that you hadn't chosen such complicated formatting for your headings.

Paste Special Format Painter AutoCorrect & AutoText Find & Replace Section 1: Formatting
AutoCorrect What? Corrects typos as they occur. It does this by replacing text you type with something else. Why? –You need to know how to turn it off. –You can use it to apply replace characters with special symbols you commonly use (such as the § symbol). –Very Important: You can use it like a mini-macro. You can save A LOT of time if you use it to replace text you type as a shortcut, with longer, standardized text that you tire of retyping again and again. You can assign abbreviations to frequently used names, phrases, and terminology, for example such as the copyright symbol.
AutoCorrect for MiniMacros How Do I Use Replace Text? –Say you type in your name and your programs address, contact, etc. Select the text and copy it. –From the Tools menu, select AutoCorrect Options…In the With field, paste your text. –Replace Text: This feature, can revolutionize your work and make up for all the frustration youve accumulated from the tool. Youll see a line that says Replace and With. (Note: You can also access this feature Insert>AutoText.) –In the Replace field, type the code you want to use to have Word automatically generate that text. Remember: if you use commonly used words, like address, then every time you type the word address, your programs name and contact will show up. Choose a code that is not a series of characters you normally type. –Notice you can select Plain Text or Formatted Text. This will simply allow you to carry over specific formatting, if desired.
Applications for AutoText & AutoCorrect Commonly used words: –Your programs name –The name of courts you file in –Your signature –Small sentences you type often (confidentiality clauses, closings, etc.) –Opposing Counsel names
AutoText What? AutoText finishes words you are typing. You can use AutoText for words you will still type out (versus use a code as in AutoCorrect), but you want Word to finish your typing for you to save time. Any text entered as AutoText will be utilized for word prediction. Examples: –Name of your program –Your name –Your courts name –Opposing parties (common) –Some sentences or phrases
Find and Replace What? Change a certain word or phrase that is repeated throughout the document. Save time by typing a code that will be replaced later. How?
