Using keyboard to move the cursor and scroll document

You can use the keyboard to move the insertion point and scroll document.

Navigating in a Table

There are several keyboard combinations that are useful when you work with a table:

Using nonbreaking and optional hyphens

Use the nonbreaking hyphen, non-breaking hyphen, or no-break hyphen to avoid breaking phrases or terms at the end of the line. With nonbreaking hyphens, the entire expression or term wraps to the next line instead of breaking. An optional hyphen has the opposite effect. It allows breaking words at the specified positions.

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.

Customizing revision marks

You can easily change the appearance of revision marks in your document. Track Changes dialog box gives you full control over the insertions, deletions, formatting, and other revision marks.

Reviewing comments from the specific reviewer

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

View documents side by side

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

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.

Setting tabs using the Tabs dialog box

You can add dotted, dashed, or underlined tab leaders. A tab leader links related but separate items across a page, such as entries and prices in a menu or chapters and page numbers in a table of contents.

A perfect text alignment using tabs

One of the most common word-processing mistakes is using spaces to align text. Using tabs ensures that your text is aligned perfectly and makes it much easier to modify settings.
