Conclusion

You could create a macro also by using keystrokes, to save and print a document as this is a procedure you are likely to use on a regular basis. With the macro, the user will need to enter the instructions step by step. If the save and print macro is assigned to keys, it can be called up quickly, eliminating the need to enter the same commands each time. These steps are as follows: 1. I clicked on tools, record a new macro, click on the keyboard icon and a new slide appears called customize keyboard. (Task 5 for screens dumps) 2. With the insertion point already positioned in the press new shortcut key box. I typed in a series of keystroke like Ctrl+L, assigned it and clicked close. (Task 5 for screens dumps). 3. I then repeated the process from steps 3 and 4 from above on recording a macro. (Screen dumps from Task 5). Task 7 When recording a macro, the macro code automatically shows you that you have made an error in the process of the recording.
