WordWrap - In the old fashioned typewriter days, it was necessary to hit the RETURN key at the end of each typed line to advance the paper and start typing the next line. With computers this is no longer necessary, and can actually cause problems when formatting complex documents. You should NEVER hit ENTER at the end of a line when typing a text document on the computer. The computer automatically knows when to move to the next line so you don't ever have to think about it. The ONLY time to hit that ENTER key is when you're ending a paragraph or starting a new section.
Why does it matter? Let's say that you're creating a text document that will be an article in the company newsletter. You are required to send the article in electronic format so that the publisher can simply copy and paste it into the publishing software that's being used. If you have typed the article using "WordWrap", when the text is dropped into the publishing software, it will automatically flow into the designated space and fit perfectly with no editing required. If you forgot about WordWrap and hit that ENTER key at the end of each line, when the article is dropped into the publishing software those hard returns will be required and appear in the wrong places. So you'll see output like this:
When creating a newsletter it can be
very frustrating when you realize that the author of an article
has used hard returns
while creating their article. You now have to go
back into the article and remove the hard returns so that the text
properly into the area designated for the article.
The newsletter editor will have to spend a lot of time removing the hard returns and will probably glare at you the next time you pass in the hall!
Put a post-it note on your screen or your keyboard to remind you to NOT hit that ENTER key at the end of each line. I even heard of a typing teacher who put a tack on the ENTER key with the pointy side up to discourage students from using the key at all! OUCH!
