Word 2010-Controlling Your Document

About the Class:

This workshop lasts 3.5 hours.

Word often makes intrusive guesses about the way you want a document, or a list formatted, or automatically changes the spelling or capitalization of words you don’t want changed. This workshop will help you understand how these automatic features work so you can keep them from making these kinds of unwanted corrections. In addition, by gaining a better understanding of these features, you will learn how to modify them to make them work for you, thereby helping you improve your overall productivity in Word.

Formatting text consistently can be a tedious, error-prone process, too. Using styles for formatting will allow you to spend less time formatting your documents, and allow you to take advantage of Word’s other automated features, such as Live Preview and automatically generated tables of contents.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Use and modify the AutoCorrect function,
  • Control AutoFormat As You Type settings,
  • Disable Word’s automatic features,
  • Create, apply and modify styles to format a document,
  • Use themes and building blocks,
  • Share customized styles between documents,
  • Automatically generate a table of contents.

What You Need to Know:

  • Launch Windows and Word,
  • Use toolbars and pop-up menus,
  • Highlight, edit, and format text and paragraphs.
