Chapter 8. Automate Away Annoyances with Macros

Chapter 8. Automate Away Annoyances with Macros

In this chapter, I'll show you how to eliminate 15 or so common annoyances by using macros. Some of these annoyances are specific ones that you may share: for example, it may irk you that Word doesn't automatically return to the last editing position when you open a document, that it indiscriminately capitalizes the first letter of every word when you apply title case to selected text, or that you have to mess with the Paste Options dialog box or the Paste Options Smart Tag if you want to paste in text with no formatting.

We'll also look at a few more general issues, such as having Word perform a series of mechanical steps for you automatically, putting a message box or input box on a recorded macro so that you can control it better, and performing Find and Replace operations that are too complex to do through the user interface.
