If you are using a smaller Laptop (netbook etc.) you are facing the problem (or should I say challenge) of  low screen resolution.

The lack of space (on your screen)  makes it difficult to see all the information you want at all times. I use my netbook as my primary email and communication computer. Mostly because of its handy size and portability. The resolution is a mere 1024x600px which is to say at least not very High-Res. When it comes to using programs like Outlook, Word etc. with large ribbons or toolbars, the space available for work is, somewhat limited.

Luckily Office has one feature that gives me a bit more space for my chores: Temporarily hiding the Ribbons   Read more…

Following my post on creating a WordPress site, I contacted Tsohost who have very kindly given us two free Pro cPanel subscriptions for a year (worth £50 / about $85 each) on their lightning-fast servers for two lucky readers! The instructions for creating a WordPress site were created on one of these cPanel servers, so they will be the same. Tsohost have wonderful customer service as well (replies in minutes) just in case there are any problems!

For some reason the developers of Office (2007 and 2010) believe that every letter or document you write should use a line-space setting of 1,5. Which really hasn’t been used since the day of typewriters. Back when you had no other layout option. Another thing annoying me is the custom setting og 10 pt. space after each paragraph you write.

Okay, this ensures that your letters (or emails) use lots of “air” and can easily be read by anyone. But being a graphics designer, this layout is ugly. Not to mention, how much space you waste. With a little tweaking you can save at least one page when printing your documents. And in these environmental times, thats not such a bad thing either.

Most users i meet doesn’t know how to fix this, or do so permanently, so this is how.
