Have you ever seen those court reporters on tv shows. The people who sit at the little machines with their fingers typing fast, well, they write phonetically and also have many one stroke keys for entire sentences that might get repeated over and over again. Like for ex: prosecutor, judge, defense, defendant, witness, the state of, first degree murder etc.

@Philis,
Shorthand does the same thing, but it does not replace proper English

I once had a legal secretary who was an ex-court reporter
and took her dictation on one of those.

@OCCOM BILL,
You don't need the control key when pressing 'PrtScn SysRq' but it doesn't hurt anything either.

@OCCOM BILL,
Can't really help on so broad of question, DP. Anything I wrote would be wordier and less accurate than the built-in help files on programs that offer them. I can tell you ACT is both the best Database program, and the easiest place to build Macros.

[just directed here; don't know if this one is here or not]

Dijya know that you can hold down Shift and drag and drop an icon/folder/file into the Recycle Bin and it will delete fully, ie. not be stored in the Recycle Bin?

Back on page 4 there's a list of Alt + numbers tricks to make symbols appear. I'm trying to put a copyright symbol in a Word (2007) document and it isn't working. Holding Alt while entering 0165 results in a "save document" box opening as soon as I hit the 1.

Any suggestions?


Acer Aspire 5743
Fn Alt 0169 (on number pad) = ©

on Dell
Fn Alt (then blue keys on querty) 0169 = ©

@JTT,
Izzie informed me that there was already a thread for computer tricks. I deleted my new thread - in time before a hamster had dragged it off to eternity cyberspace and it deleted Izzie's post too. I didn't know that it would do that.

@Izzie,

i've found that it's often easier to google the symbol rather than trying to remember the key combo...

@Chai,
If you click on your mouse wheel, it will give you a speedy way to scroll up and down your page. It also seems to have a side to side movement that doesn't do anything on a page with normal script size.

Perhaps it would allow a person to make the print really large [use Ctrl+ or ++ or +++ etc] for easier reading and not only move up and down but side to side. I'll have to try it.

@King Krimson,
Thanks KK.

Another for A2K and similar multi page sites.

Open "My Posts" in one tab and use right click then "Open Link in New Tab" for all new posts you want to read.

It wouldn't have mattered if it had at some distant time in the past, Int. You would now be happier with phonetic spelling if that was the norm today.

@Region Philbis,
It says copyright symbol on a PC is

"hold down the Alt key while keying in the numerics 0169"

How come it doesn't work in an A2K reply box?

It does work for side to side movement on a page that has had the font size increased.

When I started a thread on this, [before I deleted it], I thought that there would be thousands of neat little computer tricks, shortcuts, etc. I'm kinda surprised at the lack of them.

@JTT,
©

each computer is different with their code... (mine is the fn key next to the ctr on the left), then alt, then numerals on the right of the keyboard = ©

symbol character key is probably quicker as RP said tho...

Hey RP Very Happy

difficult to do for © on photos tho - but most packages now have a tab to change the metadata output through the software etc - it's a case of going through the software package to ensure it's not just a © on the photo as a watermark, but that the metadata states it's an owned/licensed and a copyrighted image.

@Izzie,
I remember using that special code box once upon a time but I don't know how to find it now. Obviously, it works even in an A2K reply box.

No fn key beside my left Ctrl.
