    Microsoft Equation Editor

    What Is Equation Editor? Equation Editor, a special version of the MathType equation editor from Design Science, Inc., is customized for use with Microsoft applications. Using Equation Editor, you can build complex equations by picking symbols from a toolbar and typing variables and numbers. As you build an equation, Equation Editor automatically adjusts font sizes, spacing, and formatting in keeping with mathematical typesetting conventions. Easy-to-Use Toolbar with Symbols and Templates The top row of the Equation Editor toolbar has buttons for inserting more than 150 mathematical symbols, many of which are not available in the standard Symbol font. To insert a symbol in an equation, click a button on the top row of the toolbar, and then click the specific symbol from the palette that appears under the button.

    The bottom row of the Equation Editor toolbar has buttons for inserting templates or frameworks that contain such symbols as fractions, radicals, summations, integrals, products, matrices, and various fences or matching pairs of symbols such as brackets and braces. Many templates contain slots spaces into which you type text and insert symbols. There are about 120 templates, grouped on palettes. You can nest templates insert templates in the slots of other templates to build complex hierarchical formulas.

    Creating a Table of Contents in Word: Ericas Science Project

    To create a table of contents, you first apply the built-in heading styles (Heading 1 through Heading 9) to the headings you want to include in the table of contents. Once you've applied the styles, you can choose a design and build the finished table of contents. When you build a table of contents, Word searches for headings with the specified styles, sorts them by heading level, references their page numbers, and displays the table of contents in the document. Look at the Table of Contents in this manual for an example. Once you build a table of contents, you can use it to quickly navigate an online document. Just click any page number in the table of contents to jump to the corresponding heading in the document. Guided Practice: Ericas Science Project Open the ScienceProject file from the diskette supplied by your instructor. Scroll through the documents fourteen pages. You will see that it has already

    been formatted attractively. It even has page numbers! The only thing it is missing is the Table of Contents on page 2.

    Apply the Heading 1 Style 1. Select the word Abstract on page 3. 2. Format > Style 3. Select Heading 1 from the list of Styles. Then, click the Modify button.

    Using a Watermark in Word

    What is a Watermark? A watermark is any graphic that appears behind a documents text on printed pages. For example, you could use a watermark when you want your school logo or an image from the Clip Gallery to appear lightly in the background of each printed page. Also, Word Art can be used to create a nice watermark for text such as Sample, Confidential, and Draft. Creating a Watermark 1. Begin a new blank document in Word. 2. View > Header and Footer 3. Insert > Picture > Clip Art 4. Select an image and double click to insert it into the header. 5. Zoom out to 25% to resize and reposition the image. 6. With the image

    selected, use buttons on the Picture Toolbar to format the image as a watermark: (If the Picture Toolbar is not visible, right-click the image to Show Picture Toolbar.)

    Image Control button > Black & White

    Image Control button > Watermark Text Wrapping button > None

    7. Close the Header and Footer view. 8. Type some text to verify that the watermark works as expected. Note 1: The image may be placed in the footer instead of the header. Note 2: The watermark can be created in an existing document as well as in a new document.

    Using a Custom Macro in Word What is a Macro? A macro is a sequence of Word actions that you can record. You can then run the macro, simply by pressing a key(s) on the keyboard, whenever you need to perform this sequence in any document. For example, if you often need to insert a specifically formatted table in your documents, you can record a macro that inserts the table with the correct borders, size, and number of rows and columns. When you're recording a macro, you can use the mouse to click commands and options, but the macro recorder doesn't record mouse movements in a document window. You must use the keyboard to record these actions. When you're recording a macro, you can temporarily pause recording and then resume recording where you stopped. Guided Practice: The Memo Writer For this example, you will create a macro that will allow you to start a memo with:
