Agree with Ann's advice about copyright.

Also, did you see this about the new options in Microsoft Office? http://www.pcworld.com/article/2854234/microsoft-office-kills-clip-art-replaces-it-with-bing.html

Finally, Use Creative Commons search for great images  http://search.creativecommons.org/

I need a PowerPoint template for a spinning chooser (think Wheel of Fortune wheel) where I can #1 enter the names of the items to be chosen and #2 Rig the wheel so that only the items I want  to be chosen can be chosen.
There's a million options for wheels that are totally random...but I need to rig my wheel.

And I need it for a Monday 12/15 8 AM meeting...and help out there?

Feel free to email me directly at boyercon@amazon.com

Thanks!

My boss would like some everyday images that demonstrate certain business concepts (i.e. Do it right the first time, customer experience is broken, teamwork, collaboration) and I'm having a hard time find them on the internet.  Can you please share where you go to get these images?

Thanks!

RE: OneNote Question

Try this if the lined paper did not work.

OneNote assumes that the ink is a drawing that is why you can't convert to text. First you need to select the ink, right click and select "treat ink as handwriting". Then you should be able to convert to text."

In Word 2010, you can highlight the text in a document, then click on "Quick Parts" in the "Insert Tab" and then select "Auto Text" from the drop down list.  You should see the option to "Save Selection to Auto Text Gallery". 

When you do this, any time you begin to type the first couple of words, a box will "pop up" above your text that instructs you to "Press Enter to Insert" and it will insert the text for you.  If you don't want the full text inserted, just continue typing as usual and nothing will be inserted automatically.

Let me know if this works for you.

Bummer, I'm using 2007 and Denise's instructions do not seem to work for this version.  Does anyone know how to do same in 2007? I would love to have a shortcut for this as well.  We use it here as well. Maybe I can write a macro for it.

Thanks!

Have you tried converting to Adobe PDF then doing a Save As HTML (Arcrobat has two HTML formatting options)?
