Reviewing comments from the specific reviewer

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

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.

Turn on/off document tooltips

By default, Word shows document tooltips when you hover on a button, but this option can be turned off.

Choose settings for checking Grammar

If you choose to use the grammar checker rather than turn it off completely, tell it which grammar items you want it to check and which you don't.

Change the default font in Documents

When you create a new blank document, any text you type appears in the default font, which is called Calibri, at a font size of 11 points, which is a standard size for text in everyday documents (such as letters or reports).

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.

Replacing special characters

In addition to searching for and replacing text, you can search for and replace Word's special characters, such as paragraph and tab marks.

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.

How to create a list with restarting and continuing numbering

You can tell Word whether to restart or continue numbering.

View documents side by side

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