6.2. The Outliner

Your teachers were right: The more time you spend on the outline, the less work you'll have to do when it comes time to writing your actual paper, story, article, or book. Word's automated Outline view frees you from the drudgery of keeping track of all the letters and numbers in an outline, while encouraging you to categorize and prioritize your ideas.


Note:

Before Notebook Layout view, the Outliner used to be the only way to organize your thoughts with levels. And it is still a darn good way to do so. Although you can't use audio notes in the Outliner, it does give you access to more of Word's other features. For example, you can't insert hyperlinks in Notebook Layout view, but you can in the Outline. Neither can you apply Styles to the Notebook (that's one of the reasons it sloshes around your intricately formatted documents), but you can in the Outliner.
