Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

 
 

Take Control News: New iPods Covered in Updated Take Control Ebook

Send Article to a Friend

Keeping up with iPod product announcements has become difficult, what with the new iPod nano, the iPod classic, and the iPod touch. But only a month after they were released, we have a free minor update to the second edition of Steve Sande's "Take Control of Your iPod: Beyond the Music." Version 2.0.1 includes coverage of all these new iPods throughout the book's discussion of the many things you can do with an iPod besides listen to music. If you own the second edition, access this update for free by clicking the Check for Update link on the first page of your copy; if you have the first edition, clicking Check for Updates gives you a half-off discount.

Steve gets you started by helping you figure out which iPod model you have, just in case you have a hand-me-down, or didn't realize that your first iPod is now considered a "2G." He briefly provides basic startup details, like how to charge and sync an iPod, and then he gets into the heart of the book - how to do all sorts of cool things with an iPod, including running and swimming, falling asleep, reading books and RSS feeds, viewing maps and movies, playing games and slideshows, making backups, and much, much more.
