Importing data for subdocuments

Customizing revision marks

You can delete text and graphics quickly.

Sorting a Table

If you use tables in Word, sometimes you need sort it by one, two, or three columns.

Hiding Pictures

Including a large number of in-line pictures in your documents slows down Word's performance. You can improve performance by replacing actual pictures with picture placeholders.

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.

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.

Getting to the Point with AutoSummarize

Word can automatically summarize key points in documents, enabling you to create brief versions of documents that readers can quickly scan. You'll find that AutoSummarize works best on structured documents such as reports, white papers, technical documents, articles, and so forth. AutoSummarize does not work especially well for fiction, correspondence, and other more loosely structured documents.

Adding captions with AutoCaption

Use the AutoCaption feature if you want to add captions to all items of a particular type automatically.

How to replace text with a graphic or an object

Although the Find And Replace dialog box doesn't directly support replacing text with graphics or objects, you can easily perform this action using the Clipboard and the ^c wildcard.
