[vip_students] Re: Markers again!

Hi Tony,
 
Sorry I should have mentioned that whenever you go back into your document
to resume reading where you placed your marker that you will be at the top
of the doucment. When  you have opened up the document, press keys; "control
+ F" to launch the find dialogue box. Now type into it your marker which is;
*.*  of course and press the enter key. This will then take you to where you
placed the marker. Now hit "escape key" a couple of times and you will be
right on the position of that marker. An extra little trick to remember is
that whenever you have saved a file in word and say you happen to be on
"page 250" of a particular document, if you press the keys "shift + F5" word
will jump you to that same spot the next time you open up the document. That
is that if you saved a word document last week at say "page 50" and you open
it up again tomorrow then use the keys "shift + F5" to go directly to the
location you were at last week when the file was saved.
 
Cheers,
 
Paul.

Hi Paul,
I have never placed any kind of markers before in word so bear with me!
Now I went in to the iAudio manual as it happened and found a blank line a
paragraph in, and typed *.* as directed then closed the document, opened it
again but it did not bring me to where I left off previously but took me to
the top of the manual!
I did save the marker change in the document!
Could you please explain further?
Should I be doing some sort of a search or find? 
 
It would be a big help for me and I'm sure others to get it sorted!
All the best,
Tony Sweeney.

Hi Tony,
 
Personally I read a lot of material out of word documents and what I use is
not rocket science. I just place the following mark at the point where I
wish to continue the next time I go back into that document. It is simply;
 
*.*
I use the above sequence because it is rare to find it in any normal
document and I place it usually on a blank line just preceeding the line of
text I wish to  begin next time. Each time I start the new text I always
delete the marker so that my book isn't over filled with such markers.
 
Hope this is of some help.
 
Regards,
 
Paul.

Hi All,
I had a query on this list recently about markers in a document.
Just to give an example of what I'm about!
Through the good offices of Paul we were sent the iAudio manual.
Now I have been just looking at same which is quite easy to read, I am
pleased to report as it is in word.
Now I can't read all of it in one go so would love to know is there a way to
mark the place where I left off, or even say stop reading when I would get
to the end of a page and place a marker for the next page where I can resume
my reading/studying again without having to go through the previous part of
the tutorial which I would have obviously read!
I would be pleased to receive any reply even if it is only to say "no can
do"!
All the best,
Tony Sweeney.
