Views

Word offers several different ways to view the contents of a document window.

  • Normal view(Figure 27), which is the default view, shows continuously scrolling text. It is the fastest view for entering and editing text but does not show page layout elements.

  • Online Layout view ( Figure 28) displays the contents of a document so they are easier to read on screen. Text appears in a larger font size and wraps to fit the window rather than margins or indentations.

  • Page Layout view ( Figure 29) displays the objects on a page positioned as they will be when the document is printed. This is a good view for working with documents that include multiple column text or positioned graphics, such as a newsletter or flyer.

  • Outline view ( Figure 30) displays the document's structure— headings and body text—in a way that makes it easy to rearrange the document. Headings can be collapsed to hide detail and simplify the view. I discuss working with Outline view in Chapter 8.

  • Master Document view displays the structure of a master document that includes several Word documents. It is useful for working with very long documents that consist of multiple smaller documents, such as chapters in a book.
