My Duh Moment for the Day

I'm probably the last person to figure this out, but...

As I've been wrapping up my revisions, I've had a few minor changes that I didn't want to do a whole read through for, but they needed to sit for at least 24 hours so I could make sure the flow was okay. So I went digging around in Word to see if there was some way to bookmark my document. And low and behold, under the Insert tab there's an actual thing called Bookmark. Weird, right? More like, duh.

So I just thought I'd share my little discovery for those of you who don't know about it yet. For those of you who do, you can stop laughing now. ;)

Hope you're all having a fabulous Thursday! :)

  1. Hmmm...bookmarks? Who needs bookmarks?

    It's been so long since I used Word on a consistent basis that I am definitely not laughing. Glad you found a tool to help make your revisions easier.

  9. Cool! I type in three *** in the spot I need to return to and then do a FIND to go back. A bookmark is much simpler. (Weird, I just posted about a Word discovery of my own!)
