The workshop, and associated workbook, has clearly been helpful, explaining to students how to:
- use heading styles
- use captions
- insert tables of contents and tables of figures
- use cross-referencing
- use master and subdocuments (with the necessary cautionary notes with this feature)
So I thought I'd put this post up to let others know that you can get Word to do some pretty useful things, especially when writing a long document like a dissertation or thesis. I would put the workbook on here but now I've put a Creative Commons license on my blog I'm not sure I should (so here's a sneaky link instead). Microsoft copyright all the images associated with their Office products so I can't make a Creative Commons version. Strictly speaking I'm not sure I should have created any version at all, but there you go.
So I hope this post means that more people will discover these useful features, and if you have any Creative Commons license advice on the issue I'd be really pleased to hear it.
