Event Details

About the Event:

Do you create, edit, or format documents in Microsoft Word, but want to become a more powerful user? Join STC Carolina and Christina Mayr for this 4-hour hands-on workshop where we will teach you how to create documents in Microsoft Word, helping you add your company’s branding, teach you how to create a template, and format to a certain style guide. 

This event covers how to use Word's design, style, and layout options to turn boring, bland text into beautiful and usable documents for print or the web. We will show you how to:

  • Use styles to make formatting faster, consistent, and more efficient.
  • Use color, white space, and alignment to make documents attractive and readable.
  • Use tables, images, charts, and SmartArt effectively.
  • Use cover pages, text boxes, quick parts, and bookmarks.
  • Customize built-in Word templates and themes.
  • Improve usability and accessibility of your documents.

Christina has been working as a technical writer and editor for more than 10 years and is interested in knowledge management through customer support/documentation collaboration.
