Intermediate User's Guide to Microsoft Word
Notes about Additions / Modifications to the Microsoft Word Legal Users'
Note from Attorney Charles Kenyon, webmaster, supplementor.
This guide was copied from the Microsoft
website with some supplementations that I hope you will find useful. The title
of the guide on the Microsoft site is Microsoft Word Legal Users' Guide. This supplemented copy was originally created for three reasons:
- To make sure that I and those I referred to it could find the guide. My
bookmarks to Microsoft web pages have a tendency to turn into "page not
found" errors over time. As of this writing, the link to the original
guide is: http://officeupdate.microsoft.com/legal/.
Each chapter has a link to the original chapter at the end for your
- To add links and references and make it (marginally) more useful.
- To supplement the notes on corrupted documents.
Since then, I have made a number of additions to the guide and retitled it to
Microsoft Word Intermediate User's Guide. The renaming was done to reflect the
broader scope of this work than law offices. No text in
the original guide has been changed or deleted. I have added things. I
hope that it is still of use to those trying to generate legal documents, and
think that I have made it more useful.
My additions of hyperlinks to text is not marked in any way as a modification.
Addition of written (or web) resources and cross-references to other chapters
are not marked as additions in the text. These are not marked because doing so
would unduly detract from the readability without especially helping you.
The original chapters have very few links, if you see one, assume that it
was added by me rather than by the original authors.
I have given up on tracking the changes I've made. I am currently working (while
practicing law) on additional chapters on fields, forms and boilerplate. When
they are at least coherent, they will be included in the table of contents and
navigation bars. They are on the web site for purposes of referring to other
resources. They are not in Word format and won't be put in Word format until
they are much more complete.
