Chapter 17. Using Master Documents > Formatting Documents - Pg. 405

· Rename subdocuments by opening them from within the master document and using Word's Save As feature in the subdocument window. This causes Word to register the new name of the subdocument in the master document. You cannot change the name of a subdocument by altering the Heading1 paragraph in the master view. You can change the name of a document file directly from Windows, but Word will not register the name change in the master document if the change is made this way. · Split a subdocument from within the master document by placing the insertion point where the split should occur in the subdocument box and clicking the Split Subdocument button on the Outlining toolbar. For this to work, the in- sertion point must be placed on a line that is formatted with the Heading1 style. Everything below the Heading1 style (including the heading itself ) becomes a new subdocument below the original. A new file is created for the new subdo- cument based on the text in the Heading1 paragraph. · Merge any two consecutive subdocuments in the master document. To do this, the subdocuments must be directly adjacent to one another with no paragraphs in between. Click the document icon for the first subdocument and then Shift- click the document icon for the second subdocument. This action selects both subdocuments. Next, click the Merge Subdocuments button on the Outlining toolbar. The contents of the lower subdocument are added to the upper sub- document and the lower subdocument is removed from the master document.
