If you are new to WORD, click on the arrows below to complete a title page and a table in WORD. When you finish, come back here and complete this task.
[NOTE: YOU WILL SEE IMAGES IN THIS TASK. THEY LOOK VERY SMALL. TO SEE THE FULL IMAGE, DOUBLE CLICK ON IT.]
Activity 1: Download a flyer template, and save it.
Double click the WORD file, Sales Flyer, below. It is a flyer template, which we will modify. When the window opens, select SAVE. Save the file to your computer.
[You can open a number of different templates in Word. Click on the link below to explore other Microsoft templates. Be sure to check the icon next to the template title. Some templates are in other programs, like Publisher or Excel.]
Activity 2: Open a template from your computer. Save it with a different name. Insert a new image, and save it again.
Step 1: Go to the place where you saved the Sales Flyer file (saleflyer.doc). Open that file.
Step 2: SAVE YOUR WORD document again, and add your initials to the document. For example, if Bob Barley were saving the file, he would call it "bbsaleflyer.doc).
Step 3: Click on the picture of the house (handles will appear around the edges). Delete the image.
Go to INSERT -> PICTURE -> CLIPART.
Step 4: When the Clipart Panel opens, click on Clips Online. You will be taken to the Microsoft site on the Internet. When the site opens, select Clipart from the SEARCH window. Write TRUCK in the next window. Click on GO.
When the clipart appears, click on NEXT until you find a picture you like. When you do, check the box under it.
Step 5: Scroll down the left side column and click on the ARROW in the REVIEW BASKET. A window will open. Click on DOWNLOAD NOW.
The image file will probably download into your CLIP ORGANIZER, unless you told it to save somewhere else.
Step 6: When you see the picture on your computer, simply drag it (select the image and hold down the left button while you move the cursor) onto your flyer. Drop it exactly where the picture of the house used to be. If you saved the file somewhere else, drag it from that location.
SAVE YOUR WORK!
Activity 3: Modify the text of your flyer and save it.
Step 1: Select the text under the image. Type in...
If you click on the text boxes below what you just typed, you'll notice two columns, or boxes. Select the text in each box and delete it.
Step 2: In the first column write...
the text you wrote in the first column (above). Change the FONT
to ARIAL and change the size of the font to
18. [NOTE: to have enter only 1 space between the
lines, press SHIFT and ENTER on you keyboard.]
Enter the text you see in the image above into the second column.
Step 3: Look at the bottom of the flyer. You'll see several sections with places to enter your information. The text has been formatted so that it is vertical instead of horizontal. Select the text in one tab and enter your information there. Enter...
Step 4: Now select the text you just wrote and copy it into your clipboard (storage area). To do that, with the text selected go to EDIT -> COPY or simple press CONTROL + C on your keyboard. You've done it before, so this is a review.
Step 5: Next, select or highlight the text in the other tabs and simply PASTE the information into each one. Go to EDIT -> PASTE or CONTROL + V on your keyboard. That way, you don't have to type the information into each tab again.
