This session is designed for researchers at the University of Queensland who need to use the complex features of Word to structure long documents. It includes automation to limit repetitive tasks and meet the formatting requirements for a successful thesis submission.

The session has been customised to focus on UQ's thesis submission requirements using formal documentation but will give you skills that can be transferred to other contexts where long and complex documents need to be created. 

Following this training participants will be able to:

  1. Use styles with confidence
  2. Utilise Outline view effectively
  3. Generate automated tables of contents, figures etc.
  4. Insert captions and cross-references
  5. Combine documents and merge formatting
