Master Graphic Elements, Text Boxes, Shadows, SmartArt and WordArt to create striking documents.
Text boxes and pull quotes enable you to set off text from the rest of the document. Text boxes can be used to help you organize the content on a page to keep information all on a specific page, add an annotation to a chart or image, or place text in a specific location in the document. (Text Boxes, Pull Quotes and Sidebars, The Text Box Gallery, The Drawing Tools Format Contextual Tab)
Word includes complex graphic objects that are composed of multiple shapes with connections between them. The advantage? Resizing the object resizes all of the components, maintaining the relationship between them! (SmartArt Graphics, The Choose a SmartArt Graphic Dialog Box, SmartArt Graphic Categories, The SmartArt Contextual Tab)
In this lesson, you will use Word features that make this shared work more efficient - but first lets go back in time to really understand teh benefits of sharing documents and co-authoring.
You've created a document, and you want to solicit feedback and revisions from your colleagues. Learn how to share a document. (Document Sharing, Real-Time Collaboration, Multiple Versions of the Same Document, User Information, The Backstage Info Page))
It's difficult to see where changes have been made by simply viewing a document. If you worked on a document months or even weeks ago, you might not remember where you modified the text. (Track Changes, Turn Track Changes On and Off, Track Changes Options,The Track Changes Indicator, Add Comments)
While Word's Track Changes feature provides a great way to collaborate on document revisions, unfortunately not everyone thinks to use it, or they might not know how to use it. If someone just makes changes to a copy of your document without tracking the changes, you can still easily identify what they've changed if you still have your original document. (Legal Blackline, Comparison Settings, Original and Revised Documents, Revisions Pane)
Word provides a variety of features for managing references and links to increase the value and readability of your documents.
If you are writing a document, you may want to include cross-references from one part to another, to avoid having to manually update pagination, headings or figure numbers. Since Word inserts cross-references as hyperlinks, you can also use them to jump to the target. (Cross–reference Dialog Box, Shading Cross-References, Cross-Reference Updates)
When you need to reuse or reference ideas from other authors, you insert footnotes and endnotes. These references cite or refer to the author of any borrowed content, as well as provide additional information for the reader. (Footnotes and Endnotes, The Footnote and Endnote Dialog Box, Placement, Reference Mark Navigation)
In your document, you might need to refer to information or a quotation from another source to lend authority to your work. The credibility of your document is dependent on the references that you provide. (Sources, The Create Source Dialog Box, The Edit Source Dialog Box, The Source Manager Dialog Box, Citations, Citation Styles, The Edit Citation Dialog Box)
Before you share or distribute documents, you need to consider how to restrict access to the content and remove confidential information from a document. (Suppress Sensitive Information, Hidden Text, Remove Personal Information from a Document, The Document Inspector Dialog Box, Tracked Changes Security Issues)
To preserve the authenticity of your document, you will need to prevent others from changing and formatting its contents. Word enables you to specify formatting and editing restrictions for a given document. (The Developer Tab, The Restrict Editing Task Pane, Editing Restrictions, Protected View, Mark as Final)
Almost every business uses forms to collect standard information. You can use Word's forms feature to consistently capture and collect standard information.
Macros provide a powerful toolkit that enables you extend Word's built-in capabilities.
Word's macro recorder enables you to perform a series of tasks in Word as Word records those tasks as VBA macro code. By using the macro recorder, you can create some macros without having to write a single line of VBA code. (The Record Macro Dialog Box, Macro Names, Keyboard Shortcuts for Macros)
