Navigating in Word Documents
jump forward or back the specified number of objects; for example, select Line and type
+10 to advance ten lines. For other object types (such as bookmarks), Go To provides a list
of valid destinations to which you can go.
INSIDE OUT Jump to your last edit location when you open a document
When you open a document, you can pick up where you left off the last time you
worked on the document. Press Shift+F5 to go to the location of the last edit when the
document was closed.
You’ll sometimes want to move around in a document while you’re typing or editing text—
when it might not be convenient to take your hand off the keyboard and reach for the
mouse. Rest assured that Word has plenty of keyboard shortcuts for navigating around a
document. Some of them are common to all Office programs, and you’ll find them listed in
Table 5-1 on page 108. Table 7-3 supplements the list with shortcuts that are unique to Word.

INSIDE OUT Scroll using a stylus
If you have a computer with a stylus or touch capability, you have yet another way to
move through a document: Click Pan, the hand-shaped icon near the top of the
vertical scroll bar. The mouse (or stylus) pointer changes to a hand, and you can drag in any
direction to scroll in a document, which is often easier than trying to use scroll bars. To
return to normal pointer functionality, click Pan again.
