Google used to allow the plus symbol to be used for verbatim searches, forcing Google to search for exactly what we type in, rather than trying to guess what we might mean. When Google introduced Google+, they removed this usage of the plus sign, and informed users that they should use quotation marks instead. Only problem is, as shown in the video, this new method is not reliable.
In the video, I demonstrate how using the plus symbol and the quotation marks don’t work, and show you how to make sure you perform a verbatim search.
This video explains how to deal with two problems translators and editors encounter when working with comments in the latest versions of Microsoft Word. It explains how to prevent comments from running off the side of the screen, and how to print without markup by default.
The macro referred to in the video is as follows.
' LegacyPrint Macro
'This section prints without comments
'Add apostrophes to the start of the lines below if you prefer to print with comments when they are visible.
.ShowRevisions = False
.ShowRevisions = True
'End of section
'This section allows you to print using the legacy print window without removing the comments
'Remove the apostrophes on each line below and add them above if you prefer to print with comments
'.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True
'.DisplayVerticalScrollBar = True
'End of section
Please leave a comment to say whether you managed to get this to work, as it helps me know whether my posts are user-friendly.
