Office Productivity

Office Productivity refers both to the act of being productive and efficient in an office or professional environment, as well as the software applications used to "produce" information. This includes the development of professional skills, creating work processes, and almost any program used to create or modify a document, image, audio or video clip. However, business application suites such as Microsoft Office, which include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, are typically called productivity software, as contrasted with a "utility program," such as a file manager, which is used to organize files and folders on the computer. Many office- and business-oriented groups of programs are organized into suites.

Need a Word Template (Mac) for multi-fold booklet

I love the idea of using this little pocket booklet, but can not make this template in Word.

I assume the template would maintain the proper orientation, for example.

Can anyone dig one up for me?

Problem printing two half-pages on one side of the paper.

I am creating a flier that is 5.5 X 8.5, two sided, and wanted to use Word to force myself to make two halves on the page. That works and is done.

But, I am having trouble printing it. I want both sides on the single side, side-by-side, of a Letter sides page. Then I can flip the printed pages and pass is through the printer again, and print it a second time with the same Word document.

How do I do this?

I hope I do not need to lay this out again.

I would consider printing each page to a PDG then using Adobe Acrobat CC to merge into the two into one document.

Can anyone help explain my options?

Thanks.

  • collaboration between team members (where they can ask each other and moderators questions)
  • availability on IOS and Android (as well as desktop)
  • Team Lead will take the team through a learning path through posting of online "chapters" material
  • at the end of each chapter, team members will be asked to confirm they understand.

Does Microsoft Word have any way where code can be inserted in a format like the format shown below?

I often need to document code within Word 2016 documents and would prefer to document it in the same or a similar form to how code can be inserted into Experts Exchange postings:

If so how can this be done?

net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptsvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
rd c:\windows\softwaredistribution.old /s /q
rd c:\windows\system32\catroot2.old /s /q
ren c:\windows\softwaredistribution softwaredistribution.old
ren c:\windows\system32\catroot2 catroot2.old
Net start wuauserv  
net start cryptsvc
net start bits
net start msiserver

How do I record my voice with PowerPoint (Windows) Export to MP4 Feature?

I have a current version of Windows PowerPoint and see how to select

Use Timing and Narrations

 Create Video

But do not get any prompting after that.

When do I start speaking?

And where is the highlighter I was reading about?

All I get when I create the MP$ is "Trial"..."Trial"..."Trial"...

This is a licensed copy, obviously. What gives??

Thanks.

PowerPoint (Mac) How to Expand/Collapse All Sections??

I have a pitch that grows and grows, now with dozens of sections. Sometime, I need them all expanded, like when I want to search on a key word. Other times, I want them closed.

Is there a menu option or keystroke that does this??

Thanks

I have a trust center policy established for Office, Word, etc. 2010. Yet the last two times I've installed Office 2010 for a user I get the "read only" banner at the top of the document. I've had to go to options > trust center ..., in Word, Excel and powerpoint on the workstation and specifically add the redirected folder location in order for the user to be able to edit the documents without having to "Enable for editing" each time something is opened. In my Group Policies I have:

Protected View, Trust Center Office 2010 > Policies > Administrative Templates: Policy definitions > Microsoft Word 2010 > Word Options > Security > Trust Center > Trusted Locations > Trusted Location #1, set to \\mail.hprs.local (AD/DC), Enabled and subfolders are checked.

... Trust Center > Trusted Locations > Allow Trusted Locations on the network, is enabled.checked.

The above is likewise set for Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 and Office 2010.

Why then do the Office programs on the workstation give me the Protected Mode "Read Only" setting and require me to add the location to the trust center locally for each Office component?

We have an older XP box attached to a Brother fax machine over the network... the Brother machine came with software to automatically convert incoming faxes to .tif file. I then built a series of batch files along with Acrobat that converts the .tif files into pdf's that we can copy / paste from. The system works great but I built it in 2009 and I'm worried about the infrastructure not holding up much longer... either the Brother software or the XP box or the fax machine itself is getting hung up more often now, and when it does, the faxes print on paper instead of the whole pdf / copy paste things, and then we have a stack of paper to deal with.

What's out there these days as an incoming fax system that can result in a pdf which can be copy / pasted from?

When I knew very little about visio, in making network docs, I would jam way too much on 1 drawing, thinking I had to make an entire different file with a 2nd page.  DUH!

So I know a little more and love the seperate pages and being able to have a common background on all of them, etc.

Now, is there a way to make a table of contents page? A first page that lists the name of each page in the file?  Maybe updates automatically?  When you add another page / rearrange the order of pages, this page auto updates?

Using PowerPoint (Mac) to Show vs. Hide certain slides

I need to make three of four presentation which have overlapping slides. Many are the same and some are unique. But I do not want to manage multiple copies of the same slides, especially when I need to start making modifications. What a pain that would be to keep all version current!

So, I imagine that if I could hide certain slides from viewing for Presentation #2, for example, I could have a partial solution to my versioning problem.

In fact, the only thing that would cause my plan to fail is if I needed the slides to appear in a different sequence, on one of the  presentations.

Please let me know what facilities exist in PowerPoint (Mac 16.11) to handle multiple presentations with overlapping slides.

Thanks
