Tools of the Trade
Many of us who write or edit for a living spend a lot of time in a word processor, typically either Microsoft Word or Google Docs (or both). It’s only natural, then, that we know a lot about these programs. But it’s always good to brush up on the basics.
Take this month’s quiz to test your word-processing know-how. We’ll plan on returning to this topic in a future workout, so check back with us in the coming months.
Subscribers to The Chicago Manual of Style Online may click through to the linked sections of the Manual (cited in some of the answers). (We also offer a 30-day free trial of CMOS Online.)
Note: Though the answers in this quiz are intended to test general principles of word processing, they rely on up-to-date versions of English-language installations of the desktop version of Microsoft Word 365 and the browser-based version of Google Docs for many of the details.
