formatting

It's common for older professors to assume their younger students are more tech savvy than the professors.  Every once in awhile though I'm reminded that many of our law students learned to use their computers the same way we did, on a need-to-know basis.  For example, I discovered this year that a few of my students did not know about the "find and replace" function in their wordprocessing, or how to use it for quick, consistent edits.  Doubtless many of them would benefit from the type of training in document formatting reported in this recent article.

This was an interesting article, and for me it was even more interesting because a law student had recommended it to you for this blog. It would otherwise have been the kind of article that I wouldn't have examined more closely. Thanks for sharing it.
