Select Non-Consecutive Paragraphs and Format Them

When you’re formatting a long and unwieldy Word document (or email), it is useful to know some tricks that make the job  easier. One of these is selecting non-consecutive paragraphs and applying formatting to only those paragraphs.

To select non-consecutive paragraphs:

    1. Select your first paragraph
    2. Press the Ctrl key (hold it down)
    3. Select your next paragraph
    4. Keep the Ctrl key held down
    5. Select your next paragraph

Now apply formatting, being careful not to de-select the selected paragraphs.

Only the paragraphs you selected will be formatted.

Current email issue

Some staff across the University may have experienced emails ‘bouncing-back’ from various accounts, and not getting through to the intended recipient.

It appears several UC accounts have been compromised and have been used to spam other computers around the world (accounts are often compromised as a result of phishing campaigns).

Brand protection and compliance services providers (used to protect email services) have seen this spamming activity being generated from the UC domain name and are now blocking our domain name.

The compromised accounts have now been repaired and restored, however it is likely to take a further 48 hours to cycle off the lists that are currently blocking the UC domain name.

For further information contact the IT Service Desk on 0508 UC IT HELP (0508 824 843) or on 03 369 5000.

Paste text in Bold

Did you know….

Pressing Ctrl B prior to paste gives you a bold paste.

If you are copying and pasting text in an email, or in Word, PowerPoint, or Excel, you can paste it in bold simply by pressing CTRL+B first, and then pasting. The text you are pasting will then paste in bold.

(The same applies for italics, underline, and non-bold.)
