    This started over on LinkedIn….

    What’s the most random use of the Markups List you have done, or heard of.

    I know a user who once used it to track his missing LEGO pieces.

    Unfortunately, I’ve not really tried using it for anything much more than the usual Doug. So, my most ‘unusual’ is using the column associated with the colour of the text to make my valuation sheet in Excel work with dates being associated to the colours.

    I once used it to unsubscribe from an email list.

    For some reason our Estimating email got on this email list that was all in Russian. I couldn’t read it to figure out how to unsubscribe. I eventually had a lightbulb moment.

    I made a PDF out of the email, then used a highlighter and the Translate Markups function to figure out where the Unsubscribe link was.

    Worked like a charm.
