    Question Word for Mac 2008 formatting palette
    I have Word for Mac 2008 on my Macbook, and I was wondering if it is possible to get rid of the annoying Formatting Palette and have the formatting tools in the toolbar like every other version of Word.

    Thumbs up re: Word for Mac 2008 formatting palette
    Yes this can be done
    If you go >View >Toolbars >Formatting

    This should do it

    Question
    I also have a new macbook pro and I have word 2008, does anyone know how i can select multiple objects, a few of the shortcuts I used to use on word for windows don't work with just replacing the ctrl button with the command button, any ideas?
    (I cant find an FAQ for it in the switchers lobby)

    Not quite sure what you mean, could you be more specific? Command - A is select all and if you hold down shift you can select multiple items at a time.
