Wantt to know how to start numbering on a page other than the first one (say you don’t want to have page numbers on the title page, and the table of contents)? Here’s an easy how-to: http://www.ehow.com/how_5831952_start-numbering-middle-word-document.html
I haven’t been this excited about a tip since I discovered how to use “concatenate” in spreadsheets (no, I do not need to get out more). Yesterday I was stuck in the seemingly endless Purgatory of waiting for for software to install. Because I had to stay right there so I could hit “Continue” or “I Agree” at the appropriate moments, I was playing around with my iPhone. I love my iPhone, and I am always thrilled when I find yet another thing that makes me love it even more. My big find? Google Drive for iPhone. It’s amazing. I can manage everything on my Google Drive, right there from my phone. For example, I wanted to change the permissions on some of the folders that are shared with some of my colleagues. No problem – it was almost easier to do on my phone than it is to do on the computer. A much better use of my time than playing Words With Friends!
Google Drive is available in the App Store.
I hadn’t thought about during this, but someone asked me about it today. My problem is always having to move things OFF of my hard drive, but I see the utility in this for people who work on multiple computers. LifeHacker recommended a great little free program called USBFlashCopy. It can be set up to automatically back-up the contents of your flash drive to your computer every time it is plugged into your computer.
It’s freeware, although there is an option to buy a version that runs in the background for $39.99. Personally, I’d just as soon see what it is doing.
Here’s a direct link to the product webpage: http://www.usbflashcopy.com/
