Settings in Word 2016
A lot of documents contain words (character sequences) that are specific for the company, professional area, even for the project, such as a company name, the project name, specific abbreviations, terms, etc., also first, second and other names of the author or contact persons.
Fields in a document Word are popular. Using fields, you can add page numbers, current dates, any types of references, formulas, etc. Word proposes different settings how to display fields in a document:
Today a lot of Word documents contain hyperlinks or URLs to some websites, Internet resources or e-mail addresses. When you type a link in your document, it can appear as a field. You can easily change the view of hyperlinks.
Sometimes you need to print a hidden text of the document. For example, if you want to read or correct it on paper. If you see a strange text in the printed copy that you haven't seen while edited the document, it is quite probable that you have a hidden text.
When you work with someone's else document it is possible to have a hidden text in it. On the other hand, your own document can contain a hidden text for some reasons.
Microsoft Word has many types of nonprintable symbols such as different types of spaces, tabulations, line or page breaks, etc. The non-printable symbols are also known as Whitespace characters in typography, nonprinting characters in the previous versions of Microsoft products, or formatting marks.
By default, when you create a numbered or bulleted list in Word, you can press Tab and Shift+Tab to increase or decrease the numbering level:
When you type numbers or some special symbols (see examples below) in your document, Word automatically creates numbered or bulleted lists. Sometimes you spend a lot of time to remove automatic changes in your document. However, you can easily stop creation of bulleted or numbered lists in your document.
Word is heavily used by all Microsoft Office users and customization of menu, recent documents and start screen allow you to save a lot of time.
