4 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Word Essentials Word is the word processing application of the Microsoft Office suite. Used to create: – Letters – Reports – Tables – Memos – Faxes – Blogs 444

5 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Creating a New Document When you first start Word, a new blank document appears, titled Document1. Default settings are the preset options or variables automatically in effect when the document is created. Default settings for Word are stored in the Normal.dotm template. 555

6 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Creating a New Document Using the Normal.dotm template increases the speed and efficiency of your work, because you do not need to spend time setting up the details of the document formats. You can open additional documents on top of Document 1. New blank documents will be numbered sequentially during the session that Word is opened. 666

7 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Creating a New Document Filenames remain the same until you assign a new filename. When Word is closed and then reopened, the new blank document begins again with Document 1. Quick Tip: You can also create a new blank document by double-clicking the Blank document icon in Backstage view. 777

9 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Changing Word Settings Word Options dialog box: – Allows you to customize settings to fit your preferences and meet your needs Such as the Save feature: Save AutoRecover 999

10 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Changing Word Settings “Behind the scenes” application settings in the Word Options dialog box are designed to protect your work and improve your efficiency. 10

11 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Changing Word Settings Above and Beyond: Users of previous versions of Word are unable to open files saved in the new format, unless they have installed compatibility software. If you often share your documents with users working with previous versions of Word, you should consider changing the file format setting so all documents are saved in the Word 97-2003 (*.doc) format. The drawback to this is that some of the new Word 2010 features are inaccessible in such a document. 11

12 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Inserting Text and Numbers into a Document As you enter text in a document, the insertion point moves to the right, and the information in the status bar at the lower-left corner of the document window changes to reflect the page number for the current position of the insertion point. Status bar continually changes to reflect total number of words in the document. 12

13 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Inserting Text and Numbers into a Document Entering Text in a Document – Word automatically checks the spelling and grammar in a document as you enter text, and the red or green wavy lines suggest there may be spelling or grammar errors. – If text extends beyond the right margin, Word will automatically wrap the text to the next line. This is know as “Word Wrap” – Pressing the Enter key will start a new line/paragraph 13

14 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Inserting Text and Numbers into a Document – Using the “Normal.dotm” template (Default Setting), Word will add spacing between paragraphs and the lines within the paragraph. This makes the document easier to read. 14

15 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Inserting Text and Numbers into a Document Showing Characters and Using Click and Type – The Show/Hide ¶ button enables you to toggle the option to show these “nonprinting characters.” Using these special characters makes editing your document easier. – Nonprinting characters include: Paragraph Markers Blank Spaces Page or Section Breaks Tab Markers 15

The I-beam, shown at the right, indicates that the text will be aligned at the left, beginning where you positioned the insertion point. 19

20 Lesson 11 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Lesson 12 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 4E Inserting Text and Numbers into a Document (continued) 20 – When you reposition the insertion point, by double- clicking the mouse, within a blank space in the document, Word automatically adds blank paragraphs or tabs to the position of the new location of the insertion point. Therefore new nonprinting markers and tab markers indicate how many blank paragraphs and tabs were created to move the insertion point to the new location. – Quick Tip: When entering numbers in a document, you can use the numbers in the top row on the keyboard or you can use the numbers on the number keypad. If the numbers are not displayed on the screen when you use the keypad, press the Num Lock key on the keypad.
