I'm talking about a selection that doesn't follow the usual line by line highlighting the program implements by default. Maybe you're looking to copy a vertical column of information from the center of your document, which is a difficult prospect with the usual methods.

Looking for a way to highlight and copy/paste the list in one move, without taking extra text with you? Yep, I agree. It could be a handy skill to have. You just never know when it might ...

iPhone - Easily Fixing Typos in Messages I learned about this tip a few months back and it has been life changing.   Trying to use my fat fingers to click in the little print to edit incorrect words is challenging and backspacing to just fix the capitalization/mistyped words is just plain annoying.  So . . . without further ado . . . the next time you need to edit a message (before sending):   Hold down the space bar on the keypad and wait for the keys to go blank (see screenshot below). Then (without releasing the hold on the pad) move your finger up / down / left / right on the blank keypad area to move the I-bar cursor to the correct spot.   ...

When I do these tips for you all, of course I do them for my firm as well. Back in February my Office Admin and I came up with the idea to quiz the staff on the tips... so we did that last week - with a Jeopardy Game. We divided the staff into four groups of 7-8 each, so they could work together on the answers; and had $15 Amazon cards for the winning team; $10 Amazon cards for the 2nd place group; and Certificates of Knowledge and Participation for the rest. We used the Jeopardy game music to time the answers. It was fun and amazing to see the fun and competition during the lunch hour we had.... it took about 50 minutes total... and some of the answers ...

It is a “pilot project to create an index of legal-service delivery innovation” using “indicators of innovation on [260] law firm websites” (pulled using Google Advanced Search against those firms’ websites organised into categories and jurisdictions). It consists of both a catalogue of innovative offerings and an “Index” of innovation. It made me wonder if this Index for  firms  matched two other possible indicators of innovation in the legal services / law practices industries across eight key jurisdictions (United States, United ...

I’ve always wondered what that F12 key was for!!! F12 Finesse Here's a quick tip for any readers who love to use the function keys! It turns out the F12 key is very versatile in MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint. •    F12   (alone) is the Save As command. •    Shift + F12   is the Save command. •    Ctrl + F12   is the Open command. Now, I realize there are other key combinations that will accomplish these same things, but it’s always nice to have other options
