Working in a Document

After you open a new or existing document, you need to know how to work with that document. This section introduces some of the basic concepts and procedures you need to know to work in a document. Many of the concepts and procedures discussed in the following section will be familiar to you if you have worked with other word processors. If you have never used a word processor, you need to become familiar with these basics before you start working with a document in Word 97.

When you create a new document in Word, you see a blank typing screen (except for the helpful tools at the top, bottom, and right). A vertical bar—the insertion point— flashes at the top left. Below the insertion point is a horizontal line called the document end mark. When you begin typing, your characters appear on-screen to the left of the insertion point, which moves to the right as you type.
