Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.
Q: I want my home/business/classroom to be as paperless as possible. What’s a good first step?
A: Do you make fliers or announcements in Publisher, then print them? Don’t do that. Use the email tool on the toolbar:
- Create your flier. Make sure its perfect
- Click on the email tool on the toolbar
- Fill in To, Subject, as you normally would on an email
This can also be done in MS Word.
Questions you want answered? Leave a comment here and I’ll answer it within the next thirty days.
