Microsoft Word Tutorials?

So, here’s a questions, Squiders. Well, actually, here’s an elaborate set-up, and there will eventually be a question at the end.

As you know, in my professional capacity I am an editor, and I also offer document formatting, such as preparing manuscripts for publication, either as print or ebooks.

And occasionally I will get manuscripts where it seems like people are still using a computer like a typewriter, or something else, that makes me think that perhaps it might be worth it to put together some Microsoft Word tutorials.

I’d probably make them available for a few dollars each.

Is this something that people would be interested in? If so, what sorts of things would you be interested in seeing? I could do basic Word functionality or focus things more on publishing techniques.

Or am I crazy, and perhaps I shouldn’t bother? (The business part of me – admittedly fairly small – says I shouldn’t so people will continue to pay me to format their documents for them.)

Let me know.

  1. I am a graphic designer. I only use Word to manage copy (keystrokes) to paste into my layout programs. I have designed a letterhead and the client wants to be able to open the new design in Word, type a letter on it and print or email it out. I can’t make heads or tales of the tools and creating something custom, like a template is like watching a foreign film… without the subtitles. I am a Mac man and this challenge is frustrating!
