How can I remove all the line breaks and paragraph breaks of a copied text from Word or PPT in CorelDRAW or Illustrator?
How do I insert a picture into a text box and wrap the text around it in Word or PPT 2016?
How do I insert a picture into a box and wrap the around it in Word or PPT 216? Im not familiar with PPT but this is quite achievable in Word. Managing the placement and wrapping around objects has frustrated Word users for many years. However in almost every situation Ive seen the user has overlooked or misunderstood the many options available in the Layout dialog. Used as intended these options can reliably control aspects of many Word objects (including pictures boxes shapes tables frames etc.) Theplication is that there are many not-particularly-intuitive options. My rmendation is to open a new document with some representative content; toggle on the display of non-printing formatting marks (click ub6 or press Ctrl-*); and take some time to explore the many options in the Layout dialog. horizontal-rule Here how to do what you want for placing an s 663 124
Does a tool exist to “tag” or “clip” text sections in different documents (Word, ppt, pdf) and consolidate the results?
You can do this with MarginNote 3. It is the only app I have found that can do this and I searched the entire Internet exhaustively to find a cross platform app that fulfills this request. I too am trying to keep a library of resources that allow me to drill down into tagging the content of a pdf rather than a general tag for the entire document. When you tag an annotation in Marginnote 3 it will allow you to search for it and when selected automatically reopens the document it came from to the exact page the tagged annotation is on. Pretty cool!

How can I convert a PDF to Word?
There is no good way to use Microsoft Word to edit PDFs. Microsoft Word is used for authoring an original document not modifying a portable document. True Word can import some data from a PDF. That feature is useful when you are authoring a new document and wish to salvage data from a PDF to prevent time spent entering data. In that case it is best to import the PDF into a file by itself and strip it of formatting then copy and paste it into your pre-formatted document as Normal . Then you will proceed to make other formatting changes for headings section numbering etc. If you must edit a PDF directly your edits should be minor. Even in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro you are limited in how much editing you can do. Fix a misspelled word maybe replace a word here or there. If you try to rearrange a document or make edits that cause significant changes regarding allocated space you will not get what you expect. The way flows in a PDF is not always what you expect so shortening or lengthening paragraphs will give strange results oftentimes. PDF editors are not page layout programs. So if your edits are minor and you must edit the of an existing PDF get your hands on a PDF editor (not free). If you can get away with obscuring existing and s you just need good annotation capability. If you have a Mac you can use Preview to annotate or cut and paste graphics. The free Acrobat Reader allows some annotations too. You can use annotations to white-out a section of and put in new annotation to replace it. If you are careful it may not be that noticeable. You can white-out s to alter graphics. You can create a Frankenstein Monster of a document if you like using free PDF annotation software. But then youll ask yourself why you didn just make a whole new document in Microsoft Word something you could call your own.
What can I learn/know right now in 10 minutes that will be useful for the rest of my life?
I am going to assume you are younger just starting out in life and will soon be entering the real world. The ADVICE I am going to give you is not because I think I am smarter than you; Ive just been here 3+ years longer which means I have had a chance to see and learn more. It also based on my own personal experience and what I have seen from others. That called history and acquired knowledge not intelligence. First a cold dose of *reality; I don care how many lottery tickets you buy you will never win. Nor will some wealthy close or distant relative die and leave you millions of dollars. Even if you have well-to-do parents they are not going to pay your entire way in life; they may do it for a while to help but eventually they will get tired of it and that window will be closed for business. Another news flash I don care how tech you are on your phone you will not invent an app or game and sell it off for billions when Google picks you out of a crowd of millions and writes you heavy check. A cute woman with a nice rackdon count on some guy that makes a lot of money picking you out of the drive through working at MacDonald and paying your way either reality is people tend to get into relationships with similar backgrounds and current status in life doctors marry someone that is also in the medical field (like nurses that they see and work with 4+ hours a week) because they can relate to each other at the end of the day Today I saw a patient that had Osgood-Schlatter disease. Really I had a guy bitch about not having pickles on his quarter pounder. Number 1 you may be able to do in 1 minutes; the rest will likely take you several hours days even weeks but you can get started. 1-Ask yourself where you want to be in 5 years 1 years 2 years etc. Is it in the country living off the land with 15 kids; In the burbs with a fenced-in yard with 2.3 kids two cats and a dog or is it living in a high-rise condo in the city with no kids and eating steak every night? That called finding and (if you are smart) setting goals. 2-Figure out how you are going to get there; college trade school getting a factory job that pays okay starting your own business? That called mapping your path and you have one of the most powerful tools at your fingertips that can help you called the internet. Start researching and don just look for the high paying gigs; sure being a doctor may have the potential to make a good living but what will it cost to get there (student loans) and how long before that investment of time and money starts paying off. But more important is it something you would like doing for the next 4+ years. Being a doctor may pay well but you may not like doing it if you don like the sight of blood or sticking your finger up someone ass. On the other hand you may find something that pays less but it is something you enjoy doing maybe even a passion. That makes it a lot easier to get up every morning and go to work. 4-Do some heavy thinking what your philosophies are on politics religion children (to have or not have and if so how to raise those children) financial attitudes health entertainment methods sex your moral codes etc. Don decide you are a republican because your daddy was deeply religious a doughnut eating couch surfer or a beer in hand 24 and blowing every penny you have because that was the environment you were raised in. These are choices you should make and I hate to say it but not all parents are perfect role models. 5-Choose your people wisely. Some friends are a matter of convenience because they live close. Some are because you share the same interests. But some can be a negative in your life; they are needy always broke no ambitions on a cycle of drugs etc. Unless that is the path you are on those are the kind of people that will hold you back maybe even suck you into their lifestyle. The old adage Birds of a feather flock togetheres into play. So does guilt by association. I know a few good people that occasionally get rousted by the law because they choose to hang with losers. A guy I work with sometimes is a standup dude but his two adult kids that live with him are both junkies and always into something; burglary fencing stolen goods dealing dope and the cops know it. As a result he will get the occasional knock on his door looking for the little pricks or get pulled over and put through the wringer because his car was suspected of a hit and run at 3 in the morning (while he was sleeping). He blames it on the cops for being assholes. No it because he has a couple of criminals living under his roof. At 28 and 31 years old it time to broom them but he doesn because Theyre my kids. What are you going to do? His life is one drama after another and he is constantly bailing them out (and that eats into what he owes me). 6-When looking for a romantic relationship don just jump in until you know who they really are and if you share the same philosophies (see number 4). You will never meet someone that is the exact same as you but if you are looking at making it for the long-haul you should at least be on the same page with most of them. From experience I can tell you it not fun to wake up one day and realize you have nothing inmon with the person laying next to you and are legallymitted to in fact you don even read from the same book but (like me) by the time that sinks into your thick skull you have kids and property involved now walking away isn so easy. Keep in mind most people will put their best foot forward in the beginning but eventually the real person startsing out and when they do you may not like what you see. So take your time getting to know them and who they really are. 7-When facing a decision particularly one that involves a fair amount of money time and could have a long-term impact ask as many people as you can what their opinion is. You are not asking what YOU should do but what THEY would do. If you were planning on taking a left but 2 people say they would take a right maybe they see something you don. If you are lucky some may have even been in that situation and tell you what they did or what they SHOULD HAVE DONE. That could save you a lot of headaches. 8-Start treating people the way you want to be treated; with courtesy respect willing to help when the need it etc. In any relationship; a friend fellow worker boss lover there needs to be an exchange. It will never be exactly equal there are times when one will be shouldering more of the heavy lifting but there has to be some of exchange. 9-Know that you will be going through many phases in your life your living situation your location job opportunities the paths others take etc. These will change things and those close friendships you had that will never die will be gone. That happens so be prepared to start over some segments of your life. 1-Health-when you are young you are bullet proof; can chow fast food pizza all day do drugs lay on the couch and never gain an ounce. But that will change you will start feeling the effects; weight gain aches and pains organ damagestart getting in the habit of eating better and (mild) exercising. After while it bes second nature and the pay-off is 1 years later when those around you are suffering with a multitude of ailments you are still in good shape. 11-There used to be a saying The day you were born the doctor held you upside down and slapped you on the ass (to make you cry and get your lungs moving). What they were saying is basically life isn fair kid get used to it and its life isn always fair. Occasionally we get handed a bad card. But in reality most of those bad cards we get handed we brought on ourselves because we allowed them to happen; the lifestyle we chose to live of excess partying not taking care of ourselves physically the people we hang with not taking advantage of opportunities when offered not dealing with negative things properly when they occur etc. n nOne of my best friends has been going through some pretty rough times; divorce from an alcoholic wife that was tapping his business accounts to support her drinking and gambling habits his primary piece of work equipment was run into put out ofmission repaired broke down shortly after requiring about $75 in out of pocket repairs and his disruption insurance has refused to pay him for not just the added repairs but being out of work almost 18 months losing him at least $5. Every time he tells me about his latest setback he says It is what it is. No when someone ran into his equipment that It Is What It Is because he had no control over that. However the next set of equipment failures were because he was in such a hurry to get back to work he accepted the band-aid repairs and didn insist on a full assessment and accepted the equipment as-is. He made it worse because he didn file the proper paperwork in the allotted time frame after those band-aid repairs started failing. The financial damage his ex-wife did was because he didn bother to keep track of his own bank accounts while she was bleeding him dry nor did he do anything about her alcohol issues when first noticed it was bing a problem. That isn It Is What It is it because he didn deal with them properly when they first appeared and that bad luckhe brought on himself. I did the same things in my life; my ex-wife was always bad with money right from the beginning constantly overdrawing our account (which affected both of us). Rather than firmly laying down the basic rules from the start what the consequences would be if she failed to follow them and enforcing those rules I played it diplomatically making suggestions. For some people that soft approach doesn work you need to play it hardcore; you firmly set the rules and enforce the consequences. I didn. I made it worse because I kept bailing her out which led her to believe she wasn doing anything wrong and there would always be a safety net for her me. I did the same thing with apany I was involved with. They were breaching the contract within the first 12 days and because I did not assertively address those breaches (instead politely understanding their problems) they continued failing to meet their end of the contract which ultimately cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars and lost me literally millions that I would have made had I taken a firm stand. I have no one else to blame but myself I allowed it to happen. 12-You will make mistakes that is part of life. But don just kick yourself in the ass over and over learn from them by identifying why and making changes so it won happen again. That why the study of history is so important so you don keep repeating the same mistakes of the past. *Who knows you may end-up drawing the right lotto number and win large long lost Uncle Elmer leaves you a major chunk of change you develop some stupid app that pays off etc. but don count on it. Plan on getting where you want to be at the end of your life and start working on it now. That doesn mean all work and no play but you need to prioritize the two. I have made my share of mistakes over the years from picking the wrong friends wrong relationships excessive life style living not taking job and educational opportunities when offered etc. But Ive slowly learned to use those mistakes as a process to learn and to not do them again. I still screw up almost every day I do something stupid but the ones that have high impact are less and less. And the learning processit never ends. That the real world wee to it.
What is the best way to give a PowerPoint presentation?
Who doesn want to present their ideas to others more effectively? When you present effectively your audience engages. They give you better feedback. They offer support. They connect you to others. They expect you to move forward. When you fail to connect with your audience they seemingly turn into harsh critics who are unwilling to help! They ask question after question tell you to go figure more things out ande back at a later date. Have you ever thought about how to make a presentation as TED speakers? s It is more than possible just follow a few important tips. prepare italic You need for a careful analysis of audience members to know whom youre speaking to and what they are expecting or needing from the presentation. Take time to talk to the person who invited you in the first place to obtain a full andplete analysis of who will be in the room. 2. Start with a bang not a whimper italic We live in an era of high entertainment and when we sit people in a room to watch a presentation we need our presentations to start with a bang. You can start with apelling quote a great story a stunning statistic or even a provocative question. The key is to get people's attention. 3. Keep your slides consistent italic Whatever style you pick you want to keep it consistent throughout the piece. Having one style for one slide and then a different style for a different slide can be jarring to the audience. 4. Make it visual italic Nothing makes peoples eyes glaze over faster than a -heavy slide or slide after slide of just . Use images charts graphs videos or anything else visual to break up the monotony of words. Itll also add emotion to your presentation. 5. Less is more italic One of the cardinal sins of bad PowerPoints is cramming too many details and ideas on one slide which makes it difficult for people to retain information. Leaving lots of white space on a slide helps people focus on your key points. 6. Keep the colors simple italic Stick to simple light and dark colors. Exceptionally bright can cause eye fatigue so use those colors sparingly. Dark on a light background or light on a dark background will work well. Also avoid intense gradients which can make hard to read. 7. Choose your fonts well italic Fontsmunicate subtle messages in and of themselves which is why you should choose fonts deliberately. Use the same font set throughout your entire slide presentation and use no more than twoplementary fonts (e.g. Arial and Arial Bold). 8. Involve the audience in the presentation Whether your goal is to inform or to persuade the goal will be more likely met if the audience has a participative role in the presentation. People don like to be talked to 3 they like to be talked with.
How do I watermark a picture with Microsoft Word?
Ive always done this in PowerPoint and then transferred the picture to Word. There are probably easier ways to do it but try this. Paste the picture into PPT (any blank slide) Type what you want inside the box size it rotate it to a diagonal set the color etc. Use a black (very dense) font such as Arial Black.* Select both the picture and the right click Save As Picture and then choose your format (JPG is likely the easiest though PNG offers slightly higher quality at the cost of taking up more space if you have to send the document to someone). If you do this a lot with a standard (e.g. For Position Only or FPO) save the as a picture (.PNG). Now insert the picture into a slide go to Format 2 Transparency select a level of transparency and save it again italic as a picture in PNG format italic (you can save it right over the original). Now whenever you want to watermark a photo you can simply insert your watermark over the photo and re-save it and youll have a transparent watermark. You can do all of the above in Word but it considerably moreplex positioning the various items. ____________n*I won argue that Arial Black is anything other than ugly. But it reasonably useful for watermarking.
