Week 2 Technology Discussion
Please provide constructive responses to these two discussion posts (3-4 sentences minimum)
1. One of the advance features I have learned using Microsoft word is the insert feature. Being able to place all sorts of symbols, pictures, graphs to a word document helps make it stand out more. For example, if I were to write a document that talks about graphs and data, I can insert a chart to properly displays the numbers I want to present over just regular text. To do so, you must click on the Insert ribbon right next to Home, under the Illustrations tab, you will see the Chart option. Another window will open showing you the many different types of charts and graphs that you can use to present your data. After selecting the chart you want to use, the image will be inserted into the document along with another window that reads Chart in Microsoft Windows. It is a spreadsheet that you can use to enter the data you would like your chart to display.
2. An advanced feature that I learned in Microsoft Word was to insert a picture. This may not be advanced to others but was a feature I had to play with to insert correctly. To perform this task you would open Microsoft word and open a blank document. Once the document is opened use the tab on top that states insert, once you tap insert you have options to use picture on device or online pictures. I chose online pictures which provides more options. To use the online search you can type whatever your looking for in search engine. Once you select the picture you want to use on your document click picture and below will provide option to insert. After tapping insert picture will drop onto document. The picture on document will then need to be positioned by clicking on picture and dropping on document where desired. Once picture is positioned use arrow keys to adjust size of picture as desired. I find this a great feature and think an added illustration always enhances a document of any kind.
