Managing Master Documents

As you can see, working with master and subdocuments is a great way to manage and manipulate large files. The only downside to master documents is the sometimes complicated task of keeping your files straight. Some procedures you take for granted with ordinary files—such as saving, opening, renaming, and moving—take a little more thought when it comes to working with master documents. Here are some reminders for times when you need to manage your master document files.

Saving Subdocument Files

Word saves the master document and all subdocuments when you choose File, Save or press Ctrl+S. The master document is saved under the name you entered the first time you saved the file, and Word names all the subdocuments automatically, using the first words of each heading as the file name. If you have several headings with the same title, Word adds numbers to the file names, such as “Lesson Plan1,” “Lesson Plan2,” and so on.
