I posted a new exercise under the Editing Fun tab. This exercise will focus on some of the shortcuts used to select text. Selecting text is helpful when you need to create section headings or subsection headings from content, create or undo a stacked list, and cut, copy or type over text.
- CTRL+Shift+Left Arrow – Select one word to the left
- CTRL+Shift+Right Arrow – Select one word to the right
- CTRL+Shift+Up Arrow – Select text from the cursor to the beginning of the paragraph
- CTRL+Shift+Down Arrow – Select text from the cursor to the end of the paragraph (This one is perfect to remove the extra text the doctor might dictate at the end of the document. Things such as “Thank you for editing this document, having a good weekend”)
Head on over to the Editing Fun tab and look for exercise 19!
