Constructing Documents and Other Publications Using Word’s Wizards

By now, most experienced Word users are familiar with Word’s wizards. These wizards provide a series of dialog boxes that walk you through the process of constructing a document. In other words, the wizard asks questions, you provide responses, and then a feature is activated or an item is created—such as a form, a network place, or a Web page—in accordance with your answers. The aim of a wizard is to create a foundation for a document. After the document is created, you fill in the gaps with more detailed information.

By default, wizards are accessible through the Templates dialog box with document templates. You can easily identify wizards in the Templates dialog box because wizard icons include a magic wand. To open a wizard, you simply double-click the wizard of your choice. To work through a wizard, you follow the instructions on the screen. For example, the Welcome screen for the Memo Wizard (available in the Memos tab in the Templates dialog box) is shown in Figure 16-10. The wizard steps are listed on the left side of the screen; the current step is shown in bold green text. By referring to this area while you work, you can follow your progress throughout the process. Note that not all wizards provide this step-by-step display.
