fixed : where is the Show Thumbnails option in Microsoft Word for Mac ?

Question :

I am loosing track of what I’m doing in the multi-page Word document that I’m working on. It’s over 20 pages and I am referring to info I have written on various previous pages, so I keep scrolling back and forth to find the exact pieces of text I have previously written…

It would be great to have a Show Thumbnails option like I have in Pages, Preview and Acrobat Reader, but I can’t find anything similar in Word.

Is it possible to have something similar in Word ?

 

overviewAnswer :

Yes, there is a Show Thumbnails option in Word ( Word 365 / Word 16 for Mac). It’s just that Microsoft didn’t name it Show Thumbnails and but it somewhere deep inside the menu-structure where you won’t find it if you don’t know that Microsoft calls it Navigation Pane… here’s how to activate it :

  • open Word.app
  • don’t go to the top-of-screen Word application menu bar
  • go to the menu bar of the Word Document window
  • click on the View tab
  • then put a checkmark at “Navigation Pane”

…that’s it !

fixed : how to activate animoji in iMessage ?

Question :

I just upgraded to a new iPhone that should be able to do animoji, but when I start up iMessage and click on the ‘new message’ icon to start a new conversation, the AppStore-icon stays greyed-out, and when I click it the toolbar with the Monkey-button (the animoji-button) doesn’t appear…

How can I activate animoji in iMessage ?

 

Answer :

You might encounter this problem especially if you just upgraded from an older iPhone to a new iPhone X, XS or XR.

To solve this problem, do this :

  • on your iPhone, open the Settings app
  • then go to Messages
  • make sure that ‘Send as SMS’ is switched OFF
  • then swipe-up to exit the Settings app
  • open the iMessage app
  • click on the ‘new message’ -icon (top right ; the pen&paper-icon)
  • type any addressee in the ‘To:’-field
  • now the extra toolbar with the Monkey-button (animoji-button) will appear
  • clear the ‘To:’-field so you won’t accidentally send a message to someone
  • swipe-up to exit the iMessage app
  • open the Settings app
  • go to Messages
  • switch ‘Send as SMS’ back ON if you want
  • exit the Settings app
  • …and from now on, you will have the animoji available in iMessage

that’s it !

enjoy 😉
