Title: 3 Ways Translators, Checkers, and Writers can Customize Word

Speaker:  Junya Nitta


“This is what I wanted to know!”, “I want to go home and change Word’s settings right now!”, “I now know how to make small adjustments to make Word more efficient!”. These are some of the comments received after Junya spoke at TAC in 2013. So what did you actually do after that seminar? Did you change your settings? Dare it be possible that, four years on you have yet to put what you learned into practice?

Junya will once again focus his seminar on ways to customize Word and provide tips on optimizing your PC settings. By making minor changes to your settings you can make Word work better for you and improve your efficiency. Some of the tips and tricks he will introduce include:

・Navigating some of Word’s more irritating features

・Assigning functions to shortcut keys

・Registering frequently used functions on the Quick Access Toolbar

・Making frequently used files and folders easier to access

Junya will also demonstrate how recreate (save and export) settings, such as the Quick Access Toolbar and IME entries, on another computer to facilitate the transition when you buy a new computer.

If you missed the last seminar, want a refresher, or want the answer questions you could not find on the internet, this seminar is for you! Don't miss this valuable opportunity to get inside tips on using Word efficiently.
