How to create a list with restarting and continuing numbering

You can tell Word whether to restart or continue numbering.

Protecting Word documents

When working with Word documents you often need to limit the changes to the document. E.g., contract form should prohibit changes to the text, while making possible to enter necessary data of the opposite side.

Customizing revision marks

You can easily change an appearance of revision marks in your document. Track Changes dialog box gives you full control on the insertions, deletions, formatting and other revision marks.

Reviewing comments from the specific reviewer

Sometimes you need to search for a comment or for comments from specific reviewers.

Using automatic hyphenation

Automatic hyphenation inserts optional hyphens. An optional hyphen is a hyphen that Word uses only when a word or a phrase appears at the end of a line. If the word or phrase moves to a different position because of editing, the optional hyphen is removed.

Customizing numbered lists

You can customize an existing numbered list or apply your own specifications to the number format using the Customize button in the Numbered tab of the Bullets and Numbering dialog box.

View documents side by side

You can easily view two Word documents using View side by side feature. Synchronous scrolling makes it extremely convenient.

Using manual hyphenation

With manual hyphenation, you have more control over what is hyphenated and how it is hyphenated. You can select which parts of the document are hyphenated and where a hyphen appears in specific words. This is a huge hassle for a large document, but it does allow you to do a better job than Word might do automatically - Word sometimes hyphenates words in positions that don't look good.

Creating numbered lists

Numbered lists are created in a manner similar to bulleted lists, except that instead of bullets Word places sequential numbers. This is a very useful feature, because if you add a paragraph in the middle of a numbered list or rearrange the order of the paragraphs in a list, Word automatically renumbers the paragraphs so that they retain their sequence.

Setting tabs using the Tabs dialog box

You can add dotted, dashed, or underlined tab leaders. A tab leader links related but separate items across a page, such as entries and prices in a menu or chapters and page numbers in a table of contents.
