People are now working digitally and working from anywhere. The internet and mobile technology make for a super effective way to accommodate your work. Devices are portable; apps are available; and online tools are free.
The only things you need are an internet connection and a device to keep you connected to the internet. While there are dedicated hotspot devices for such a purpose, you can easily do it through your smartphone.
It comes as no surprise that all digital workers use Google Drive for working online at one point or another. You can access your work from anywhere, collaborate on content easily, and integrate your work with a full suite of tools from Google.
Despite all the advantages, issues can and do occur between your desktop and online files. In some cases, the online apps offered by Google aren’t always the most robust to use.
You would normally use your own full-featured tools that are installed on your desktop that does what you need. This can be especially true for PDF files where you need powerful features.
A week into the new school year during the pandemic. It is a new normal that is trying to function as normally as possible with social distancing and safety measures in place.
Most universities in Canada, for instance, have implemented a blended method that combines both online and in-person learning environments, while younger students across Ontario are also being given the option of attending in-person or attending online. Definitely a change that can disrupt the learning process.
Online learning will rely heavily on new technological platforms and routines. The Internet is key, of course, and while we normally advocate doing things digitally and remotely, such a method isn’t ideal without the right tools to supplement your study plans.
For students, studying remotely now during the pandemic is lacking in things like hands-on lab learning, personal engagement, and one-on-one feedback – all of which can impact your focus and progress.
Essentially, the new normal of this pandemic will be putting the online e-course model to the test like never before. To help with that process, though, we put together a list of some helpful tools and sources that can tweak your studying sessions, your school’s online work, and your remote learning process.
Whether you’re a student researching and writing a paper, a business professional sending an email, or a freelancer revising a draft, being able to edit and correct anything you write is important.
This isn’t a new concept. You’re no doubt familiar with grammar and spelling checks in MS Word. However, when writing digitally and online is becoming a virtual staple in any type of work, it comes as no surprise that editing tools, add-ons, and document checking capabilities are becoming more popular, powerful and robust.
Google Docs has incorporated a native spell checker and suggestions, Grammarly has been one of the major standalone document checking tools on the market, and now Microsoft, who has been a major powerhouse in document creation and editing, has stepped into the game by building up its own editing tool: Microsoft Editor.
Microsoft Office Publisher files are perhaps one of the easiest and most common desktop publishing applications for anyone to use for creating print publications. With a few tips on how to use MS Publisher, you can start using the application like a professional editor.
Despite all its features and advantages for the common user, though, MS Publisher is notorious for its lack of compatibility with other applications. MS Publisher files aren’t as universal as you would assume.
It poses a major obstacle for collaboration, reviewing, and sharing Publisher content, which is an essential part of publishing print material. Limitations arise if a user doesn’t have a copy of MS Publisher installed. MS Publisher doesn’t have a dedicated viewer for opening or viewing its native file format. Moreover, MS Publisher files are pretty much the one Office format that causes problems for macOS users, because MS Publisher isn’t offered in Office for macOS.
In this post, we cover a few tips, hacks and suggestions that can help you open or view Microsoft Publisher files.
