Medical communicators use MS Word differently than most writers. The technical, dense, and massive documents produced in our field push MS Word to its limits—and many of its users. Users often find frustration with the ostensibly arbitrary shifts in Word documents. Working on writing teams, with different versions of the software and differing skill levels, a perfect document could leave our hands only to return completely messed up. This webinar might not prevent the human element of writing on a team, but it will help participants know how to recognize and correct introduced errors that once seemed mystifying—and even prevent them in the first place. If nothing else, this webinar sets out to change the perception that Word is a four-letter word.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, participants should be able to

  • Use formatting marks, ruler functions, and keystrokes to quickly change the look and feel of documents
  • Master page, paragraph, tab, and character formatting and easily create and modify styles
  • Format tables for improved readability
  • Manage styles from the backend and cull style artifacts that compromise documents
  • Create templates and themes—and know where to find them again
