The frustration of setting style of default blank Excel workbook

I’ve just spent ages trying to sort out how the blank workbook launches. These notes refer to Excel in Office 16 and 365.

What tripped me up is that you can control the blank workbook displayed when you open Excel but you can only change the font settings for the Blank workbook you use when you choose File then New and Blank workbook.

What fonts come with Windows 10 or Microsoft Office 2016?

Up until now Microsoft have listed the fonts that come with different version of their products.

This link to their latest listing is very ambiguous and doesn’t even list Windows 10 or Office 2016 against Arial which doesn’t make any sense at all.

I picked up in a tech forum this very helpful post where someone has transcribed what they had on a new machine.

We’re sponsoring Business Leadership Summit run by The Lawyer

Next Tuesday 26th September we will be at the Business Leadership Summit at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London.

We are going to be releasing the research ‘Microsoft Word in law firms – Are client relationships compromised by inadequate investment in Word?’ We worked with The Lawyer Research Service to ensure the research was independent and rigorously carried out.

Everyone saw Word as a critical tool and yet that wasn’t matched by a commitment to invest in Word or get the most out of it.

If you’re going to the Summit we’ll have copies available and will be discussing it at our round table.

Otherwise if you’d like to get in touch we can email you a copy.

Test out our tool to convert, repair and restyle legal documents

Converting numbered legal documents, such as an agreement, into house style is probably a frequent task for most law firms. However Murphy’s law suggests that when you are at your busiest you will find yourself dealing with the most problematic document.

With a single click Brochet Paste can convert, restyle and repair a 30 page document in less than two minutes.

If you want to check it out for yourself send a copy of your file to Nikki (email: nikki@brochet.co.uk) and she’ll be happy to show you. You can watch via Webex.

Alternatively bring your file on a memory stick to our stand, A14, at British Legal Technology Forum on Tuesday March 14th and put Brochet Paste through its paces. For those of you who bring a file we’ll put you in to a lunchtime draw to win a bottle of Vincent Brochet champagne.

InDesign or Microsoft Word?

Word? Are you serious?!

If you use Adobe InDesign the normal comment on Microsoft Word is: IT’S RUBBISH. For our money that is normally the response of someone who hasn’t stopped to consider the differences.
