Chapter 7: Inside Word 2010
With its printer-centric roots, a Word document consists of one or more pages. Page sizes
are normally based on paper sizes used in desktop printers, although you can define a page
as any size up to 22 inches (558.7 mm) square.
In this section, we assume that you are using the standard Word 2010 Document (.docx)
format. For a description of other available formats, see Table 4-1, “Supported File Formats in
Word 2010,” on page 77.
Figure 7-1 shows a brochure/data sheet for a new product. In the figure, you can see some
features that can be incorporated into Word documents, such as pictures and other
graphics, text wrapped around irregular shapes, multiple-column layouts, tables, and bulleted
lists. We explain how to implement each of these features (and many more) in this and the
following three chapters.
