File Properties available. When issuing the command, you can choose from a list of participants. The chosen participants receive a copy of the document transferred to their system, which can be saved or opened in Word. File Send To Fax Recipient Launches Word's Fax wizard, allowing you to choose a cover sheet template for the document and set up the document for faxing. This wizard contains two options: printing the document to send it via a fax machine or sending the document to a fax program installed on your system. The Fax wizard helps prepare a document for faxing by attaching a cover page and handing the files off to installed system fax software. Bypassing the Fax Wizard Most fax programs integrate with Word by creating a printer in Windows (My Computer Printers) that looks like a printer to most applications but actually relays documents to the fax soft- ware. To bypass Word's fax wizard (which doesn't add much value), choose File Print and select the fax "printer" instead of your default printer using the printer's properties. File File Send To Microsoft PowerPoint PowerPoint is a program used to create slide presentations. When working in outline view (View Outline), you can convert a Word outline into a PowerPoint presentation simply by selecting File Send To Microsoft PowerPoint. Each "Heading 1" line in the outline is made into a separate slide with the heading as the title. Heading levels beneath the "Heading 1" line are constructed as an outline on the slide. For the conversion to PowerPoint to work, you must use Word's built-in heading styles. Print Just a Heading Outline Using PowerPoint Word does not provide the ability to print just the outline of a document (the major headings of a document as viewed in Out- line view, which is discussed in Chapter 6). You can, however, send a document to PowerPoint and then print the outline view in PowerPoint, as long as you haven't customized your own heading styles. File Properties This command opens a property sheet for the active document. This dialog is divided into five tabs: General, Summary, Statistics, Contents, Custom. These tabs are covered in detail in the following sections. General Tab This tab is the basic Windows property sheet for the document file and shows the basic attrib- utes of the file for the document, such as the filename, type, location, and size.
