Guest Post @ Lawyerist: 3 Word Formatting Snafus … Solved!

A lot of Microsoft Word users (particularly those who are coming to Word from WordPerfect) tear their hair out over those seemingly unsolvable formatting issues. You know what I’m talking about: that really funky something that happens to your text that seems to defy logic, even considering you’re dealing with a software program.

Over at Lawyerist, I tackle three of those bugaboos: the horizontal line that suddenly appears in your text and that you can’t backspace over, pages that have large blank spaces at the bottom of them (despite the fact that you haven’t put a hard page break in there), and yellow (or blue or green or whatever) highlighted text that won’t go away no matter what you do.

If you’ve ever had one of these frustrating problems, click here for the solutions.
