Create an Outline-Only Copy of a Document

This hack shows you how to quickly extract just the outline from a document.

While working on a long document, you may want to pass along a copy to someone else to review. But what if you just want a copy of the document’s outline? With the macro in this hack, you’ll be able to create a copy of a document that includes only the text at or above the specified outline level.

There are nine outline levels, corresponding to each of Word’s nine built-in heading styles. The lower the number, the higher the outline level: Level 1 is the highest, Level 9 the lowest. The rest of the text in a document has no outline level; Word calls it “body text.”

Tip

While in Outline view, you can select FilePrint to print just the outline of a document. The Print Preview feature, however, will not correctly display the document.
