Part I: Word > Notebooks, Outlining, and Master Documents

6. Notebooks, Outlining, and Master Documents

Have you ever sat down at your Mac and pounded out a polished white paper, 25 page essay, or bestselling novel in one smooth pass, your words flowing logically from start to finish? Probably not. Human thoughts often fragment, and despite their disjointed nature, these shards of logic frequently represent the foundation for annual reports, term papers, and books. Microsoft understands, and has provided tools for better capturing and organizing those thoughts. Enter Word's Outliner and its spin-offs the Document Map, Master Documents, and the shiny new Notebook Layout view.

Outlining is simply a way of organizing your ideas, and Notebook view is a great tool for capturing those ideas, rearranging them, and even voice-recording your thoughts. As your document grows and reaches completion, the Document Map—which resides in Words 2004's new Navigation Pane—lets you fly through your document, and Master Document lets you and your co-workers create the mother of all documents.
