Registration is closed for this class


Macros can help you tame Word and automate many editing functions for faster, more precise copyediting. This 3-week online course (Dec 7, 14, and 21) gives you a kick start to using macros in Word 365: recording and cutting and pasting. You’ll gain an understanding of macros and learn how to customize them and use wildcards.

Included are written lessons and video demonstrations. Both Mac and PC versions of Word 365 will be covered.

Instructor Adrienne Montgomerie is an experienced instructor, editor, computer support tech, and course designer. What’s more she’s a blast and will bring humor to macros! Visit her website Right Angels and Polo Bears.

“I know I’m in a profession I love when I’m so excited about some aspect of it that this is all I can talk about over pre-dinner cocktails with friends. (And yes, they pretended to be as excited, well, at least for a few minutes). Why am I so thrilled? This class! I’ve been intimidated to use wildcards and macros since the first day I learned those words. After Adrienne’s lessons, I attempted the Polo Bear macro, and much to my happiness, after typing in my own troublesome words, bam! It worked on a client’s project. Then I wrote my own little macro to do some file clean up. It worked, too. Yippee! And then, oh my gosh, I tried that little trick of replacing xxx in autocorrect with an oft typed author query. That one alone must have saved me half an hour today.”
