    Macros from Word to Publisher (Word/Pub 2003)

    1. I'm no macro genius. All I know is how to record keystrokes, which can be done easily in Word. Is there a way to transfer that macro into Publisher, as P. doesn't have that simple keystrokes macro creator?
    2. As I'm recording, I'd like to select TO the period with the keyboard (or to whatever character I wish). In ancient word processors I was able to do that but haven't found the trick in word.

    Thanks! <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    1. It's difficult to move macros between applications because their menus and way of working with documents often are so different. Would it be helpful to move this thread to our Publisher board?

    2. In Word, there is an "extended selection" feature which I've never fully figured out. You can click EXT on the status bar or press F8, and then as you desire, typing a character extends the selection to the next instance of that character.
