Creating Subdocuments

Once you have the basic outline in place, you can determine how you want to divide the master document. Create a subdocument by following these steps:

1.
Make sure that all headings and subheadings you want to include in the subdocument are displayed by clicking the Show Level arrow on the Outlining toolbar and selecting Show All Levels.

2.
Click the symbol to the left of the heading for the text you want to use for the subdocument. For example, if you want to create a subdocument of the “Introductory Remarks” in Figure 20-3, click the plus (+) symbol, and the entire topic is selected.

Figure 20-3. Be sure to display and select all text you want to include in your subdocument before clicking the Create Subdocument button.


3.
Click Create Subdocument on the Outlining toolbar. The topic is marked as a subdocument, as Figure 20-4 shows.

Figure 20-4. Word creates the subdocument and names it using the text in the first line of the selection.


4.
Save the document. Word saves the subdocument as a separate file in the same folder. The Heading 1 text at the beginning of the file is used as the file name.
