Part I: Learning the Basics > Editing Documents

Chapter 3. Editing Documents

In This Chapter

  • Selecting text to perform numerous operations.

  • Using the Undo feature as the ultimate “oops” fixer.

  • Adjusting the zoom setting so that you can read tiny print or check a detailed graphic.

  • Opening multiple documents at once so that you can easily create a new document from pieces of existing documents.

  • Using Word’s collection of view modes to review, edit, and format documents.

  • Previewing a document in Print Preview before you send it to the printer.

  • Faxing and emailing documents.

When you’re learning a new program, there is a certain amount of information that you have to learn before you can move on to the more advanced features. One of the most critical skills you can develop is selecting with the mouse or the keyboard. You’ll soon see that many actions that you take in a document involve selecting text.

Another important concept is learning how to send out your documents. Back in the “old days” you had to print a document and either mail it or hand carry it to the recipient. In Word 2003, you can fax or email documents just as easily as you would print them. Add the Print Preview feature, which helps you proof your documents onscreen, and you are well on your way to saving trees.
