We’re delighted to tell you about our latest ‘Quickie’ ebook – Formatting Magic with Word.  There’s a lot more to Word than just bold, italics, underline and other options that can be squeezed onto the toolbars.

Formatting Magic with Word goes through all the formatting options in Word:



  • Font
  • Paragraph
  • Tabs
  • Border
  • Language
  • Frames
  • Numbering

All the options are explained with examples and tips on when a choice can work for you and your document.  Then we explain how to group and manage those many options to make your document look better with less work and stress.  Finally we take a practical example, a personal letter, and show Word formatting at work.

As with all the Office Watch ebooks and newsletters, we’ve tried to go beyond the standard software ‘how-to’ to give you practical advice and tips we’ve learnt from decades of computing experience.” said author and co-founder of Office Watch, Peter Deegan.

Formatting Magic with Word is primarily written with Word 2003 in mind but also applies to Word 2002 (XP) and Word 2007.
