Calendar Revision Submissions for Mac Users

Instructions for downloading the current Calendar copy, for PC users

Retrieve content from the current Undergraduate Calendar (ensure you have updated versions of Internet Explorer and a word processor - WordPerfect or Microsoft Word).

Select appropriate section (your department) of 2013-2014 calendar.

On upper right of the copy, select "printable version"

On left side of top menu bar, click on "File"

  • Select "Save as" from pull-down menu - dialogue box will appear
  • at top (of dialogue box) - choose appropriate folder in your word processing package (or wherever you save word processing documents)
  • "Name:" should indicate your "department".html
  • "Format:" - select "HTML Source"
  • click on SAVE

Open this "html" file in your word processing package, and save as ".wpd" (WordPerfect) or ".doc" (Microsoft Word).

Make changes (by using strikethrough for deletions and bold for additions) and re-save as necessary. If changes to course titles are required, strikeout complete current title and follow this with bolded new title.

When ready for submission to Evelyn DiFruscio, retrieve file from word processing package and save as ".rtf"

Saving a file in "rtf" format (Mac)

Open document in word processing package.

On left side of top menu bar, click on "File"

  • Select "Save as" from pull-down menu - dialogue box will appear
  • at the top of the dialogue box, select directory (or desktop)
  • "Save Current Document as:" should indicate your "department" (Hint: you could save it at this point as requested in the instructions, e.g., "2013calendar-FREN"(no spaces).)
  • "Save File as Type:" should be "Rich Text Format" (most current version should attach '.rtf' extension to the file; if not, append file extension).
  • click on "Save"

Now you will have the original document and an "rtf" document.
