Make your own shortcuts in MS Word

making shortcuts

Like all other software, MSWord have built-in keyboard shortcuts. Beyond those pre-defined shortcuts, you can define your own in Microsoft Word.

Open Tools > Customize and in new dialog click "Keyboard" . In new dialog click some category from "Categories" list. In "Commands" list chose some command. When you chose some command, in window bottom in "Description" field command description shows up. Chose command and click "Press new shortcut key" to activate. Then on keyboard click shortcut you want to add. If that keyboard combination already exist like some shortcut, you will be noticed, if it's free you will see "unassigned" notice. After that just click "Assign". 2 clicks on "Close".

If you made some mess, don't worry. In dialog "Customize Keyboard" you have "Reset All" to back shortcuts on default.

Format copied text as you wish

You've got text documents in various formats. And you want to be sure that text copied from other documents conforms to my document style. This is the way in MS Word 2002 (XP).

1. In the source document select and copy text you want to use.
2. In the destination document, create a blank paragraph and apply any formatting, such as font size, bullets, columns that you want to apply to the pasted text.
3. On the Edit menu, click Paste Special, click Unformatted Text, and then click OK.

The pasted text follows the formatting you specified for the blank paragraph.

When copying or moving text in Microsoft Word 2002, a Paste Options smart tag will appear just below your pasted selection. If you want to copy or move text without transferring its formatting, click the smart tag button and choose Match Destination Formatting or Keep Text Only from the dropdown menu. Alternatively, if you want the text to retain its original format, select the Keep Source Formatting option. You can also use the Apply Style or Formatting option to apply a style or create a new style for the pasted text.
