visual acuity, your manual dexterity (for precise mouse positioning), the fonts you choose,
and the type of work you’re doing (for example, you might need to zoom way in while
editing a picture, and then zoom back out to work on text).
You adjust the zoom percentage using the slider in the lower right corner of the Word
window, next to the document view buttons. For more precise control, click the View tab and
then click Zoom to display the dialog box shown in Figure 7-4.
Figure 7-4 The Many Pages option adjusts the zoom level to precisely it the selected number of
pages in the window.
The Zoom group on the View tab (shown earlier in Figure 7-2) also provides options for
quickly returning to 100 percent scaling or to certain preset zoom levels that scale to it
one or two pages in the window or it the page width to the window width. With these
presets (other than 100 percent), the zoom level automatically adjusts when you change the
window size. Note that these presets generally have no effect except in Print Layout view.
Creating and Editing Documents
In this section, we take a look at some document editing techniques that are used only in
Word. The nature of text-centric documents produces some unique requirements, and in
this section we discuss the solutions provided by Word 2010.
The process of starting a new document is essentially the same in all Office programs. For
details, see “Using Templates to Streamline Document Creation” on page 97. Likewise, the
methods for opening existing documents and saving documents are the same in Word as
they are in other Office programs. For details, see “Opening and Saving Documents” on page
90. For information about basic editing techniques that apply to all Office programs, see
Chapter 5, “Entering, Editing, and Formatting Text.”
