2 Steps to a Professional Document
Microsoft Word 2007: popular word-processing program The most efficient way to produce a document is to follow these four steps: Planning: saves time and effort. Creating and editing: typing text in document and proofreading the typed document. Formatting: adjusting margins, line spacing, and using formatting features. Printing or distributing online: first preview to make sure it is suitable for printing.

3 Word Processing Word Processing: use of computer software to enter and edit data Uses for Word Letters Reports Memos Newsletters

4 Opening a document Click the Office button in the upper-left corner of the Word window and view the menu of commands that opens. Click New Verify that the Blank document option is selected (it will be highlighted in orange), and then click the Create button at the bottom of the dialog box.

Office Button: Click it to open a menu, which contains commands for working with files Ribbon: contains commands for working with the document, organized by tabs Quick Access Toolbar: Contains buttons for three common commands; you can add additional buttons Insertion Point: shows where text will appear when you begin typing View buttons: allows you to change views quickly Zoom slider: allows you to increase and decrease the size of the document on the screen.

6 Views The views are in the lower right corner of the window.
There are five different types of views: Print Layout view – shows how the document will look when printed; here you work with headers, footers, margins, columns, and graphics. Full Screen Reading – shows text on screen n format that is easy to read; ribbon is replaced by toolbar with only a few commands Web Layout- shows how document will look when it is viewed as a web page Outline view – displays headings and text in outline form Draft view – shows only the text in a document

7 Rulers Click the View tab.
In the Show/Hide group, click the Ruler check box to display a checkmark.

8 Insertion Point Text appears in the document at the insertion point.
Looks like an I-beam As you type the insertion pint moves to the right and the Word count is shown in the Status Bar. Word Wrap – when the line you are typing reaches the right margin, the text is automatically wrapped to the next line

9 Nonprinting Characters
Nonprinting Characters: symbols that appear on the screen but are not visible on the printed page. In the paragraph group on the Home tab, click the Show/Hide button (¶) Examples of nonprinting characters: (·) marks the space between words (¶) marks the end of the paragraph (or when you press enter.)

11 Zoom Zoom level: controls the document’s onscreen magnification.
100% zoom: show the document as if it were printed on paper. Page width zoom: shows the entire width of the document on the screen. Changing the zoom only affects the way the document is displayed on the screen; it does not affect the document itself. Higher percent zoom: larger the document looks Lower percent zoom: smaller the document looks

Line spacing determines the amount of space between lines of text within a paragraph. Can be changed in the paragraph group dialog box Remember to remove the points before or after Paragraph spacing determines the amount of space before and after a paragraph.
