Master Documents

Very long documents, such as books, can be cumbersome to create. Creating the entire document in one document file can result in a monster file that slows performance when editing or scrolling text. But creating a separate file for each chapter makes it difficult to ensure consistent formatting and review the document as a whole. What’s the solution?

Word’s master document feature offers the best of both approaches. A master document is a Word document that includes a group of related documents called subdocuments. Master documents are commonly used to divide a long document into smaller, more manageable pieces.
