Note that on HP printers, even after you have manually installed a duplexer into the rear of a model such as those for the HP 600 series, it will not necessarily work unless you make changes to the printer's properties. Select the printer under Printers & Scanners in Windows 10, click Manage, and then click 'Printer Properties'. On the Device Settings tab, scroll down and find the option in the 'Installable Options' group for 'Duplex Unit (for 2-sided Printing)' and make sure that it's set to 'Installed'.

I'm working on a trial right now so my posts will have to be short .

Note that if you use a batch file like the one discussed in the Tip of the Night for July 24, 2020, and the names for the renamed files include any of the special characters:

* . " / \ [ ] : ; | , $ + # % ! @

. . . which cannot be used in the Windows file system, the batch file will fail, and files with those characters will not be copied. To get around this problem, use the PowerShell script described in the Tip of the Night for May 5, 2018.

Don't miss how easy it can be to create a word index in Microsoft Word. Using a concordance file you can tag any letter or number strings in a Word document and automatically prepare an index which shows which page numbers on the Word document the strings appear on.

Begin by creating a simple Concordance file, which is just a two column table with the string you want to tag in the left column, and the XE code tag you want to add to the string in the right column. In this case we will tag the strings with the strings themselves because that is the output we want in the index.

In this example, we want to find the pages on which the four words in this table appear . . .

. . . in a different Word document. Note that the concordance file will not be case sensitive. We save the concordance file as a separate Word document. In the document we are preparing an index for, on the References tab in the Index section, click Insert Index.

. . . click on the AutoMark button on the lower right and browse to the concordance file you just created. This will add XE codes to the document which will be the basis of the index.

Select the location where you want your index to appear, and then go back to Insert Index on the References tab and select Insert Index again and then simply click OK.

An index will be generated listing the strings followed by each page number on which they appear.
