Add Charts to the Document

Word borrows Excel's charting capabilities, which gives you plenty of power to create attractive and convincing charts.

Group and Ungroup Objects

If you work with several objects and have to move them or apply shared formatting to them, you must select these objects every time. Apply formal grouping and you will be able to operate those objects quickly as a unit.

How to review Tracked Changes

When you've created a document and sent it out to your colleagues for editing, you'll probably need to review the tracked changes and decide which to keep and which to jettison.

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.

Reviewing comments from the specific reviewer

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

Using wildcards

Word lets you refine your searches using wildcard characters and operators. The question mark and asterisk are wildcard characters that represent characters in the search text.

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.

Creating First Line and Hanging Indents

You can use the ruler to create a hanging indent or a first-line indent.

Compress the pictures in a document

If you use large pictures in a document, its file size increases rapidly. You can reduce this problem by telling Word to compress the pictures.

Adjusting Picture Characteristics

There are few ways to modify picture settings.
