Chapter 1. Basic Word Processing > Creating a New Document

1.2. Creating a New Document

There are at least four ways to create a new document from scratch. They are as follows:

  • Choose File→Project Gallery and click the Word Document icon, as described earlier.

    POWER USERS' CLINIC
    Keystrokes of the Very Busy

    Within the Project Gallery, you can jump from the category list at left to the templates in the right or middle panel by pressing Tab. Once you've highlighted one of these lists, pressing the up and down arrow keys moves you up or down the lists. When the templates are in icon view, you can press all four of the arrow keys to highlight successive icons. (Sorry, Mac OS purists: You can't jump to a particular template by typing the first letters of its name.)

    When you've highlighted a category (in the left-side list) marked by a "flippy triangle," press -right arrow to expand it, or -left arrow to collapse it again. And when you've finally highlighted the template you want, pressing Return or Enter, of course, opens it.


  • Choose File→New Blank Document.

  • Press -N.

  • Click the New Blank Document button (the very first icon) on the Standard toolbar that appears just beneath your menu bar.
