Omg, omg, omg…
Uh, yes I have just edited two chapters, copy edited an optics ms and written a scene, to the point I have words leaking from my ears.
Shakes head vigorously, splattering walls with excess verbiage
And precisely because I spend so much time using Word (as well as words) that I can say without hesitation:
Omg omg omg
Did you know, perchance, that if you press shift+f3 in Word, it cycles selected text through ALL CAPS, Initial Cap, and lowercase?
Sadly, a not insignif. part of an academic copy editor’s job involves swapping headers and titles into stylesheet-compliant formats. I’ll no longer have to retype ‘Introduction’, ‘Conclusion,’ or ‘References’ approx 1000 times a day. Give or take just a few.
I feel like Homer Simpson when he realised that the pecking bird only needed to hit ‘Y’ instead of Y-E-S: “Marge, I’ve just tripled my productivity!”
I’m not quite sure what I will do with this newfound bounty of free time. In keeping with Homer, though, I can say one thing: it definitely won’t be housework!
