Where Do I Find It in Office 2011 For Mac?
Part of the Office 2011 For Mac For Dummies Cheat Sheet
There are a handful of Microsoft Office actions, items, and commands most people seem to use frequently. So here’s where you’ll find Clip Art, Symbols, the AutoCorrect on/off switch, and application Preferences for all Office apps:
Clip Art: Office includes a tasty selection of clip art images; launch the Clip Art Gallery by choosing Insert, Clip Art, Clip Art Gallery or launch the Clip Art Browser by choosing Insert, Clip Art, Clip Art Browser.
Symbols (such as: ©, ®, , , ✓, ÷, or ): Choose View, Object Palette and click the Symbol tab (third from the left).
AutoCorrect On/Off: The AutoCorrect feature in all of the Office applications can be a real timesaver. But there are times when it interferes with getting things done. When that happens, you can turn individual AutoCorrect items — such as replace straight quotes with smart quotes automatically as you type, or automatic bulleted or numbered lists — on or off by choosing Tools@@AutoCorrect and then deselecting the check box for the item.
Application Preferences: One would think they’d be in the Tools menu but one would be wrong — you’ll find them in each application’s eponymous menu (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook menu). Or skip the menu and use the keyboard shortcut: Command+, (comma).
