Selecting tip for Word June 13, 2008

I can’t believe I’ve only just found this out, but did you know that you can select words and paragraphs in a Word document THAT AREN’T NEXT TO ONE ANOTHER by using the CTRL key?

So, in the example below I double clicked ‘providing’ then held down the CTRL key and double clicked ‘engineering’.

Now you can do what you like with them: delete them both at the same time, change the font, make them capitals…you name it. And it works with whole paragraphs too.

This works for Word 2007. Not sure about earlier versions.
