Chapter 15. Outlining: The Best Way to O... > Controlling Your Outline View

Controlling Your Outline View

You've already heard that Word's outlines enable you to "view the forest and the trees." In fact, you can control the exact level of detail you view at any time. It's as if you could not only view the forest or the trees, but also specific leaves, branches, trunks, individual trees, or groups of trees as well.

Displaying Only Selected Heading Levels

Imagine you're reviewing a complex document with several levels of headings. You might want to start by looking at the document at a very high level—viewing only first-level headings. Click Show Heading 1 on the Outlining toolbar, and Word hides all paragraphs except those formatted as first-level headings (see Figure 15.10). The gray underlining beneath these headings tells you they have subordinate text you aren't seeing.
