Called a “great app” by one tester, Office Lens turns your Android, iPhone or Windows Phone into a pocket scanner that works “flawlessly,” delivers “crystal clear images” and does an “excellent job of transcribing a printed page, despite edge distortion (page from a hardcover book),” according to other users.

    26 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    Today’s post on OneNote was written by Michael Williams, Social Science teacher at Weston Ranch High School, Manteca USD. I am a young educator who grew up in an educator family and have seen many movements to increase the amount of technology used in the classroom—but many of these were short term blips. Education has essentially been conducted in the same manner for thousands of years. A teacher passes on knowledge of a topic to the student and the student writes down the information. The student then studies the information to master the content. OneNote is the next technology step in…

    Murray Sargent: Math in Office

  • Equation Numbering in Office 2016

    MurrayS3
    14 May 2015 | 9:02 pm
    Word 2016 and PowerPoint 2016 join OneNote 2010 (and later) in offering a way to display equation numbers flushed to the right margin. To enter an equation number using the linear format (see Section 3.21), type the equation followed by a # (U+0023) followed by the desired equation number text and hit Enter. For example, E=mc^2#(30) ⏎ renders as   (30) Internally this layout is created with an equation array in which the # character acts as a marker telling the LineServices math handler to flush what follows the # to the right margin. Because equation arrays allow you to align parts of…
  • Hot Keys and altGr

    MurrayS3
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:55 pm
    The earlier post, RichEdit Hot Keys, lists all built-in RichEdit hot keys. In particular, it lists a popular hot key for typing the Euro (€), ctrl+alt+e, which works for some languages, such as US English. A problem may arise when altGr+e is assigned to some other character, such as é in Spanish keyboards. This is because altGr generates a left ctrl + right alt key down combination, instead of a right alt key down combination. RichEdit avoids a conflict by not treating left ctrl + right alt key combinations as hot keys. So with RichEdit and Word, it's easy to insert both €…
  • RichEdit Colors

    MurrayS3
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:34 pm
    Occasionally people ask how foreground (text) and background colors work in RichEdit. This post gives an overview of RichEdit colors in a variety of scenarios including default coloring, formatted coloring, selection coloring (both normal and acetate), math-zone highlighting and special draft and high-contrast modes. It also describes refinements such as switching to XOR coloring when the foreground and background colors are too similar. Interestingly enough except for math-zone highlighting, all these coloring options work with RichEdit plain-text controls as well as with rich-text controls.
  • Math Language Tag

    MurrayS3
    14 Feb 2015 | 2:35 pm
    To guide proofing tools to use the correct dictionaries and autocorrect lists as well as to display preferred glyphs, it’s very handy to associate language tags with text runs. For many years, Windows has provided a language tag property called the LCID (locale identifier) consisting of a 32-bit unsigned integer. The LCID suffices for many purposes. But as time has gone on, more and more languages have been supported on computers and finer distinctions have been needed than provided by the LCID’s primary and secondary languages and sort order. Accordingly the BCP 47 language tag…
  • Two Phonetic Scripts: Vietnamese and Korean

    27 Jan 2015 | 2:16 pm
    I just visited two very interesting countries, Vietnam and Korea. Being actively involved in writing software (mostly RichEdit) for editing the world’s scripts, I was naturally fascinated to see Vietnamese and Korean text displayed in profusion. The Vietnamese and Korean scripts were designed with a common purpose in mind: enable the languages to be read and written easily by all members of their respective countries. Earlier on, people tried to write Vietnamese and Korean by customizing the Chinese script. But while the Chinese script is well suited to Chinese languages, it’s…

I've had to use this feature myself on several occasions recently, and I've rediscovered seven ways you can easily (and thoroughly) screw up a Table of Authorities. Do yourself a favor and click through to learn from my mistakes!

  • eLearning: The Role of Images

    IconLogic
    27 May 2015 | 9:22 am
    by Sean Stoker   Are the slides that make up your eLearning lessons text-heavy? Images are an often overlooked component of a good eLearning course. Sadly, when images are added to eLearning, they often have little to do with the content being presented or, just as sad, are of poor quality. You've probably heard the saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words. But consider this: people process information presented in an image far faster than text. According to Mike Parkinson, founder of Billion Dollar Graphics, "visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text, graphics…

    21 May 2015 | 7:55 am
    by Kevin Siegel    The ability to create Responsive Projects was introduced last June with the arrival of Adobe Captivate 8.

When you publish the responsive project, the learner will automatically be served the break point appropriate for the device they're using.As I've created more and more Responsive Projects, one of the big concerns is to ensure the fonts and font sizes used in each break point is appropriate for the display size.

  • eLearning: Sync/Align With the Playhead in Captivate or Storyline

    IconLogic
    12 May 2015 | 1:00 pm
    by Kevin Siegel You're developing an eLearning module in Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline. There's a slide that plays for 45 seconds. As you're listening to the audio, you'd like a screen object to appear in sync with the voiceover audio or some other screen action. If the object in question is already on the slide, you can certainly select the object on the Timeline and drag it until its left edge gets to the desired part of the Timeline. Of course, if the slide is playing for a significant amount of time, that's going to require a lot of dragging. One…
