Word - Using Tabs
Tabs are an important part of Word and it can be cumbersome to create a document if you don’t have them set right. Read on to learn how simple and easy it is to work with tabs.
To see what tabs are already set up for your document you need to have the Ruler showing. In Word 2003 go to View / Ruler to turn it on. In Word 2007 and above go to the View tab and check Ruler.
Indenting a paragraph – highlight the paragraph you want to indent, click and drag the Left Indent marker on the ruler to where the paragraph will begin.
Moving a tab marker - any tab marker can be moved – simply click and drag it along the ruler.
Adding a tab – click the tab box on the left side of the ruler to pick a tab type and then click on the ruler where you want it.
Removing a tab – click and drag it off the ruler.
Now you can create your document without having to use spaces to get your text and items to line up on your page.

How People View Web Sites
When creating a web site there are many things to think about. One of the most important is to consider how people view sites – from where their eyes go first to how long the first impression takes to using text vs pictures.
There have been a lot of scientific studies done on this subject. One of the best articles I have read that summarizes this information is “10 Useful Findings About How People View Websites”
Some of these include:
- Top left corner gets the attention first
- People read in F-Patterns
- Use visibly bigger introductory paragraphs for improved attention
- People do scroll, but put most important content above the fold
- Left side of the page gets more attention that the right

So next time you are working with your web personnel don’t be offended if they are adamant about how things are placed on the site – because they most likely have also read this article!
