A few answers to questions that came up during the webinar:

  1. How can I insert fields into a document like those used in a template? You can do it from the Insert tab. Find the Text group of commands, and click Quick Parts, and then Fields. For more info on what field codes actually are (most of the time, there's no need to use them), click here.
  2. Is there a menu of keyboard shortcuts somewhere? Yes! Here's a comprehensive one.
  3. Can I set the default file extension to be .doc instead of .docx?
  4. Yes! Click the Button. Click Word Options in the lower right corner of the window, and then click Save. Here, you can choose what default format you want your Word doc to be saved in.
