Word: Convert Fields to Regular Text

This handy shortcut will basically stop a field from being a field. It's sort of like changing a formula into a straight value in Excel. Select the field in Word and press:

Ctrl + Shift + F9

So, if you have a field in Word that performs a calculation, or maybe it's a picture brought in through mail merge, you can select it and use this shortcut to take away the field entirely and just leave you the text (or image). You'll no longer be able to "update" it, as it won't be a field anymore.
