Productivity tools by Ken Endacott

Microsoft Word utilities and tools

Ken Endacott's free EDITORkae utilities and tools extend Word's menus and are designed to improve the productivity of editors and writers.

The tools can help rationalise style usage, control track changes, setup numbering schemes, give uniform table layouts, manipulate shapes and pictures, edit fields, bookmarks and hyperlinks, control spell checking and setup Tables of Contents.

How the modules work

Each module pops up a menu that floats over the screen, Menus can remain on the screen while work is being carried out on the document or they can be closed and opened again when needed. The tools run in Windows versions of Word 2007 or higher, in both 32 and 64 bit versions.They will not run in Mac Word.

How the tools are run

A custom ribbon containing buttons for the individual modules is automatically created when Word is opened. Alternatively, an icon to run Launcher can be placed on the Quick Access toolbar and the individual tools run from the Launcher menu.

The package

The utilities come in a zip file containing the individual module files, the ribbon creating file, the launcher tool and installation instructions. Also included is the file FindReplaceData.docx containing useful find/replace strings and a primer on using Find and Replace wildcards.
