Navigating to and from the Master Document

The basic idea behind master documents is that you can have one large file in which all pieces are represented, but for convenience and expediency’s sake, you can have each of these different pieces in a different place, theoretically being worked on by different people. As you begin to work with and edit the text of your long document, you’ll need to know how to navigate among the files in order to make the changes you want to make.

Working with the Master Document

After you create a master document and create subdocuments within it, Word changes the way it saves the file information. No longer is everything stored within the single document. Now the master document contains links to the subdocuments, and when you expand and work with the subdocuments within the master, you are really, through links, working in the individual subdocument files themselves.
