2 From In Word 2007, you can spend more time writing and less time formatting. The new, results-oriented Office Fluent user interface presents tools to users when they need them, in a clear, organized fashion. Live visual previews, and pre-defined galleries of styles, table formats and other content help you get more out of the powerful Word 2007 capabilities. 2

20 Office OneNote 2007 is a digital notebook that provides people one place to gather their notes and information, powerful search to find what they are looking for quickly, and easy-to-use shared notebooks so that they can manage information overload and work together more effectively. (from Microsoft) Demonstration 20

21 With Office InfoPath 2007, you can create and deploy electronic forms solutions to gather information efficiently and reliably. (from Microsoft) Demonstration 21

22 How do I View or Edit the Document Properties? Insert Text Quick Parts Document Properties Or, Office Icon Prepare Document Properties Advanced Properties How can I Change the line spacing defaults? Home Paragraph Line Spacing options Or, Click the Home tab Change Styles in the Styles group Style Set click Word 2003 Set as Default. 22

23 How can I get rid of the Mini-toolbar? Hold Shift down to temporarily remove Office Button Popular Deselect Show Mini toolbar on selection to permanently disable Will Documents To Go Support Office 2007 files? Yes, if saved in Office 2003 format or earlier. If saved as 2007 files, users will need to upgrade to the current version of Documents To Go (v10) which supports viewing of Word 2007 and Excel 2007 files. 23

24 Will it work with PS queries that use Excel? Yes, it appears that PS will work with Office 2007. MS Word cannot convert a PDF to editable Word document ABBYY PDF will accurately convert any PDF (scanned or created) to MS Word or MS Excel. ABBYY PDF transformer software can be purchased here: 24

25 To save a document as Final: If Track Changes has been enabled, you are able to individually select changes and right click to Accept or Reject or you can broadly accept all changes. Once you are through the whole document, click on the Accept icon --> Accept all Changes in the Document. This appears to delete all traces of changes, even if you ask for Markups to be shown. In addition, you do have the option of then saving the document as a Final--Read only document from the Office Button --> Prepare --> Mark as Final. This will prevent others from changing any contents of the document. 25

26 To compress pictures and discard cropped areas of pictures: Select the picture in your document --> the Picture Toolbar Contextual Tab should appear. Under the Adjust task --> click Compress Pictures--> in the resulting box, click Options --> under Compression options you should choose to 'Automatically perform basic compression on save' and 'Delete cropped areas of pictures' (no wonder I couldn't find's buried!). Also, see this Microsoft article about other options for compressing pictures and reducing file size: us/word/HA101922001033.aspx us/word/HA101922001033.aspx 26

27 Poster size? In Word, the highest custom size I could get to was 22" square. To change size, go to the Page Layout Tab and click on Size. In PowerPoint, it seems like 56" is the limit. To change size, go to the Design Tab, click on Page Setup. In Publisher, there are many more options for sizes. Publisher seems to allow page sizes up to 240". To change sizes, go to Format --> Publication --> Change Page Size 27

28 In Word 2007, when you click on Home and New, you are given a bunch of template options similar to Publisher. It really blurs the lines between Word and Publisher. 28
