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.

Align text vertically on the page

You can align text between the top and bottom margins of a page if the text on the page does not fill the page. For example, centering text vertically often improves the appearance of short business letters or report cover pages.

Creating a multilevel list

Multilevel lists can contain numbered and bulleted lists. 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.

Creating Your Own Menu

Word 2007 no longer has a menu (unless you call Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc., a menu), and you can't customize what's not there. Word does still have context-sensitive right-click menus. However, unlike in previous versions of Word, the user interface no longer provides a way to customize them.

How to add and remove horizontal lines between sections of the document

Word proposes very simple way to add horizontal lines to a document, but if you would like to remove these lines this wouldn't be so obvious.

Duplicate table column headings across pages

If you have built a long table that extends across two or more pages, you can create a table heading from the text appearing in the first row of the table, and Word will automatically repeat that row at the top of each page.

How to create a citation

Either you do your scientific research work at school or college, or write an article to the reputable magazine you need to reference sources of your information. To simplify this hard work Word 2007 provides you automatic tools for inserting citations.

Create a bibliography

Use the Style Inspector

Word provides two tools to help you find out: the Style Inspector and the Reveal Formatting pane.
