Jim Calloway, director of the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Management Assistance Program, sent me a note about a useful Web resource. His note bears repeating here:

Oklahoma lawyer Doug Loudenback has created a quite remarkable WordPerfect resource and placed it on the web for others to use at no charge. It is called A Common Person’s WordPerfect Macro Manual and for those who use WordPerfect and want to automate your word processing a bit, it is quite the resource- 10 chapters and 192 pages, all in downloadable PDF files. Most lawyers will not want to become a WordPerfect macros expert like Doug. (He produces the Grande Macros, a amazing set of macros for family law and appellate practice that is for sale only to Oklahoma Bar Association members through my office.) But there are many times simple and easy-to-create macros can be used to speed up many daily tasks.

For more WordPerfect tips, reviews, links and free downloadable WordPerfect macros by Doug (including a math/date calculator and a macro which converts a document’s footnotes or endnotes to text in order to submit articles to journals and magazines) go here There are many simple tips there, too, like the steps to add a macro button to the tool bar.

Thanks for the pointer, Jim.
