Office Tip: Keyboard Shortcuts for Creating Paragraph Borders in Word 2007
I’m glad, that among my circle of computing friends, keyboard ninjitsu is now becoming a standard skill. As with many cases, not having to lift your hand from the keyboard to fiddle with your mouse (or any other pointing device for that matter) to execute commands is a lot quicker.
If you’re using Word and would like to separate paragraphs by creating borders in a jiffy, here are some quick keyboard shortcuts that lets you create different border styles by keying in a symbol three times and hitting Enter. Word will automatically create one for you.
|Minus sign (-)||— + Enter||Hairline|
|Underscore (_)||___ + Enter||Thick|
|Equal sign (=)||=== + Enter||Double|
|Hash mark (#)||### + Enter||Triple|
|Tilde (~)||~~~ + Enter||Wavy|
|Asterisk (*)||*** + Enter||Dotted|
This feature is actually part of the
AutoCorrect feature that you can also use to do a whole lot of other things.
