QuickTip: Change Default Font in Word 2007

The bar studying continues and on top of it all I had my appendix taken out last Wednesday. So, here's another quick post to hold you over.

Not a fan of Calibiri 11 pt? Longing for the days of 12pt Times New Roman? Perhaps something different? You can easily change the default font in Word 2007 back to Times, or to anything else you prefer.

1. Format some text to your desired default font/size and highlight it.
2. Press CTRL + D
3. Click "Default..." in the bottom left corner
4. Click YES to apply the new default

Disclaim every email?

Do you simply put your disclaimer at the bottom of every email? Most people, especially lawyers, probably do. But, is this wise? Read this interesting article here.

The signature option used to be the most realistic option for inserting your disclaimer, but with other simple options out there (including previously mentioned Texter) perhaps it is time to rethink your habits.

New layout & an announcement

For the feed readers, come take a look at the new design and let us know what you think. I'll likely be tweaking things for a little while longer, but not likely anything anyone other than me will notice. Let me know if you guys see any bugs.

Also, both Mike and I started our bar review course this morning (only 57 days to go). I hope you'll all understand if the posts drop off a bit. Make sure you subscribe to the rss feed to make sure you don't miss anything.

[Edit: I had some technical difficulties and had to revert to the old layout, the new one will come back when I get it un-borked]

[Edit 2: un-borked... good to go... for now]
