Are you worried about getting your thesis/dissertation into the format required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies? Would you like to know more about how to use the formatting features in Microsoft Word? Research Commons staff will help you with your questions about the nuts and bolts of formatting: page layout, numbering, headings, front matter, and more! This workshop will also cover the basic resources that are available to help you in writing your thesis/dissertation. Graduate students at any stage of the writing process are welcome, but some prior knowledge of Microsoft Word is recommended.

8775 I've used Overleaf in both research and teaching, and all around, Overleaf has had a very positive impact on my work. I strongly recommend it to everyone who uses LaTeX on a regular basis. 8776
Section breaks are used to create layout or formatting changes in a portion of a document. You can change the following formats for individual sections:
Hint : If you are formatting columns of information using custom tabs, consider using a table instead. You can convert tabbed data into a table by selecting the data, then on the Insert Tab click Table | Convert Text to Table.
Another example: The commands for editing a SmartArt object are not relevant until you have inserted one in your document. Clicking on a SmartArt object causes a contextual tab to appear with commands used for editing.
Computers: Students are welcome to bring their laptops but this is not a requirement for the workshop. If students do choose to bring their laptop, a standard document will be used for instruction during this workshop.
Navigate to section 6. Right click the page number and click Format Page Numbers. Set the Number format to i, ii, iii. Set the Page Numbering to start at i
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is happy to review your thesis early in its preparation to ensure that you're on the right track. It's a good idea to get a pre-review when your thesis is nearly ready for examination, so that you have time to make any formatting changes in advance of corrections required by your committee or examiners.
