Word Top Tips

I wish somebody had shown me 15 years ago how to do all these Word tricks – I produce a lot of Chemistry resources and it would have saved a lot of time and improved their appearance. It’s also more fun making the resources when you feel you are in control of Word.

  1. use AutoCorrect to format chemical formulae as you write
  2. back up the normal template
  3. impressive resources using bookmarks and hyperlinks
  4. write above an arrow in a formula
  5. convert a pdf to a Word document
  6. copy text from a diagram or picture
  7. write the mass number above the atomic number
  8. set up your Quick Access Toolbar
  9. add a standard conditions sign
  10. add a science symbol
  11. add an equilibrium sign
  12. add a triple bond sign
  13. add a double bond sign
  14. add a free radical dot
  15. add a commonly-used table
  16. use Building Blocks to quickly add diagrams, text or tables
  17. restore underlining and blue font in hyperlinks
  18. use a non-breaking space
  19. move lines up or down in a table
  20. list all keyboard shortcuts
  21. select a random name from a class list
  22. copy 24 items to the clipboard
