Create Custom Views

You can easily get a bit disoriented as you change views, toolbars, and zoom levels within Word. This hack shows how to create predefined views and return to them instantly.

Word offers a multitude of viewing options. With the addition of Reading Layout view in Word 2003, you can now choose from six different views: Normal, Web Layout, Print Layout, Reading Layout, Outline, and Print Preview. Plus, you can turn on and off features such as paragraph marks, tabs, hidden text, field codes, and bookmarks, just to name a few. And as Word has more toolbars than you can fit on most screens, depending on the work you’re doing you may want to change your view a few dozen times each day.

Even if you only occasionally zoom in or out, or use Reading Layout or an extra toolbar here and there, you’ve probably found that there are a handful of viewing combinations that you prefer. Unfortunately, reorienting Word the way you want is no small feat. While it may not eat up a whole morning, a few seconds here and there to change a few settings can really add up.
