    Group and Ungroup Objects

  • Snap an object to the Grid or to a Shape

    Snap an object to the Grid or to a Shape

    By default, Word makes objects snap (jump) to an underlying grid laid across the document. If you drag an object, such as a shape, you'll notice that it moves in little jerks rather than smoothly. This is because of the grid - but because the grid is normally invisible, it's not obvious.

    Use the Style Inspector

    With all the different kinds of formatting that Word offers, you may sometimes find it hard to see exactly what formatting is applied to particular characters or a paragraph.

    Change the default font in Documents

  • Change the number of the most recently used documents

    Change the number of the most recently used documents

    Having your 25 most recently used documents on the File tab, in the Open menu is handy, but you may find it's not enough. You can increase the number shown up to 50, and you can pin (fasten) particular documents to the menu so that they remain there even if you haven't used them recently.

  • Flow text from one text box to another

    Flow text from one text box to another

    In some document layouts (e.g., magazines), you may need to run a series of text boxes that contain a sequence of text. Word lets you flow text from one text box to another: When the first text box is full, Word automatically moves to the next text box and fills it. If you add or delete text in a text box, Word adjusts the text in the subsequent text boxes accordingly.
