(VIDEO) Paste Text from a PDF to Word and Fix the Short Paragraphs with this Shortcut

Did you end up with a bunch of short lines of text when you copied text in a PDF and pasted it to Word? You had a paragraph mark (or manual line break) at the end of each line instead of only when there is a new paragraph (or new line).

I’m talking about these things. They’re the culprits. I’ll show you how to find out if they’re there and how to get rid of them.

Have you gone through an entire document line by line deleting these? You’ll be happy to know you won’t have to again. You can use Word’s Find and Replace command to clean your entire document with just a few keystrokes.

Would you agree that when you know which buttons to click, you can finish work quicker and go home?

PEACE.

VIDEO: Insert Text and Graphics Using this Shortcut in Word – AutoText

I shake my head every time I see formal documents such as a letter or certificate “signed” with a typed signature. This is never appropriate and can be easily avoided.

A fancy font does not make it OK.

I’m not a paper person and will take the electronic route every chance I get. If I have to sign a Word document, my actual signature is saved as a graphic on my computer. If I have to sign a PDF, it’s a Custom Stamp in Adobe Acrobat and Foxit PhantomPDF.

In this video, I’ll show you how to save the graphic of your signature, etc., in a timesaving feature in Word called AutoText. Once stored as an AutoText entry, you’ll sign your document with your actual signature using a couple of clicks. Your company logo will be at your fingertips instead of two hours away as you try to find it on your computer network.

I’ve used AutoText in every version of Word that I can remember, and am still surprised users don’t take advantage of it. Anything you can display on a page and select can be turned into an AutoText entry.

VIDEO: Embed Downloaded Fonts Into a Document You Share or Show on Different Computers

In a previous video, I showed you how to find and install fonts on your computer. If you use these installed fonts in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, etc., you’ll want to embed them when you save. This is especially important if you’re sharing a document or you’re presenting on a different computer, and those fonts may or may not be installed.

If you create a template to base future documents on, click to embed fonts in it so you don’t have to remember to do this every time.

embed fontsThis video shows you how to embed fonts into your documents: True Type Fonts (TTF), created by Apple decades ago; and Open Type Fonts (OTF), more robust fonts created by Adobe and Microsoft.

Suite Tuesday. I hope you'll click Like, Share, and Comment on this video

NOTE: After I installed all the fonts, I moved the files into a separate INSTALLED folder. This way, as I download more, I’ll only deal with the new ones.

PEACE.

VIDEO: How to Find and Install Fonts to Your PC – Windows 10/8/7

I wanted to add a lot more creative fonts to my computer. DaFont.com has it all. In this video, I’ll show you how to search, download, relocate to a folder outside of your default Downloads folders, extract all files, and finally, install.

If Used, Embed

If you use these installed fonts in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, etc., be sure to embed them when you save. This is especially important if you’re sharing a document or you’re presenting on a different computer and those fonts aren’t installed. When you save your file, be sure to tick the box to Embed fonts (this video shows you how).

NOTE: If you create a template to base future documents on, click to embed fonts in it so you don’t have to remember to do this every time.

WordMark.it

Here is a cool Website I found that allows you to type a word or phrase in a text box to see what it’ll look like in all the fonts on your computer. WordMark.it

Wikipedia Font List

In addition to seeing how fonts on your computer look inside your Office document, you can see them on this Wikipedia list.

How to Create a Photo Slideshow on YouTube and Add Music (with video)

It’s SUITE TUESDAY, and this week’s real quick video shows you how to create a photo slideshow on YouTube. After your event, family reunion, or whatever, you can create a photo slideshow and share it with the public or a select few.

Free music selections are available, but you cannot add your own. I’ll record another video on how you can add your own music using PowerPoint.

At the end of this video, you’ll see a link to video I recorded on how to download your photo slideshow to your computer.

If you don’t already have a free YouTube channel, sign into your Google account and click to create one. Here’s more information on that.

Video: Add a Trailer to Your YouTube Channel (for New Visitors and Subscribers)

Have you created a trailer for your YouTube channel? You can set one up for New Visitors and have the same or a different one for Returning Subscribers.

I recorded a real quick, how-to video to show you how. First, upload your video to YouTube and make it public.

VIDEO: How to Email a Single Excel Worksheet in a Workbook (with video demo)

If you’ve needed to email a single worksheet out of a workbook, here’s a quicker way to do it instead of saving a copy and deleting what you don’t want to send. This tip works the same in every version of Excel I’ve used. (I’ve recorded a video demo below.)

  1. RIGHT-click on the tab of the worksheet you want to email (if you want to send more than one worksheet, hold down the Ctrl key and click each one).
  2. Click Move or Copy
  3. Change the To book drop-down to (new book), then tick the Create a copy box, OK.
 The desired worksheet(s) will now be in a separate workbook. Save (or not) and send via email.
To finish work quicker, you have to learn which button to click! I schedule regular training and will also come to you in person and on the Web.

Video: Use PowerPoint to Design YouTube End Screen Template (Lots of PowerPoint Tips Inside)

Use PowerPoint to Create YouTube End Screen TemplateI use PowerPoint for just about everything I need graphic-wise. I go way beyond just slides. YouTube introduced End Screens in 2016, and YouTubers can add these thumbnails to the last 5-20 seconds of their videos. They can be set up to point to your other videos, other channels, subscription link, your Website, and more.

I created my End Screen template because the thumbnails would set on top of my tips video and hide some of the information. This slide-turned-video leaves space for the video links that YouTube adds.

PowerPoint Tips You’ll Learn

Watch this video whether you have a YouTube channel or not because you’ll learn lots of PowerPoint tips. Here are some of them:

  • Resize a slide.
  • Format slide background with gradient fill.
  • Frame a slide with a rectangle shape.
  • Align objects horizontally and vertically.
  • Create more guides and also how to remove them.
  • Animate objects to appear automatically at the right time.
  • Use the Shape Tool to totally transform a shape.
  • Rotate objects.
  • Select multiple objects with your mouse.
  • And probably more that I forgot. Just watch!

Here’s My Video

And here’s my video on how I used PowerPoint to create my End Screen template (related videos are below also).

(Video) How to Export a PowerPoint Presentation to Video

If you add animation to one or more slides, or timed transitions between them, you can save the presentation as a high resolution video that is sized for the big screen. This video shows you how to export a slide that’s already created, not how to create the slide and add animations (I’ll create a different video for that).

Note: I recorded this video in PowerPoint 2013, and although the output provides the option for 1080p resolution, native PowerPoint would only output to 720p. UPDATE: I’ve found an Add-In from a PowerPoint expert that outputs to 1080p. http://skp.mvps.org/videotools.htm

 

Let me know what you think about this video. How can I improve my videos?
