In this lecture, I'll introduce myself, and introduce what we are going to learn.
Let's start! We'll start by creating a blank new document by going to File - New, and we'll use this method to create a document based on a template, such as a fax cover sheet.
Next we'll start navigating our way through your document. Let's start by finding text, by using the Navigation pane and by using the Find box.
We now turn to formatting a document. Let's look at all of the options we have for modifying how a page is set up (e.g. portrait or landscape).
We now turn to how you see your document. There is more than one way of looking at it, including the Reading view. Let's see the five different views you can use.
We'll look at how to get printing options added to the QAT, and go through the various options of printing. We'll then take an advanced look at the File - Options - Display tab and see what will and will not be printed by default.
We'll look at how to open a document, navigate around it and append text. We'll also look at shortcut keys for moving around your document.
We'll investigate what font attributes are (such as bold and double underlined), how to see this, and how to manipulate them, including through a dialog box.
There's more than indentation than changing where the start of a line or paragraph goes. Let's look at using the Tab key in the middle of your line to line items up. We'll see the various type of tab stops, including left-, middle- and right-justified, together with decimal-aligned and the vertical bar.
We'll have a look at widow and orphan control, and why you need to know about it. We'll also look at Keep with Next and Keep Together, and why they are often used with headings.
We'll look at creating tables, and see how you can fit the column widths to the text. Then we'll look at using Quick Tables (predefined tables).
