Formatting Columns and Sections
While that’s convenient if you happen to be working in Outline view, there’s no reason to
switch to Outline view to jump to a heading. A much better tool for that purpose is the
Navigation pane. (For details, see “Navigating Within a Document” on page 203.)
Notice that the Navigation pane has many of the capabilities of Outline view. It shows a
hierarchically organized outline of your document headings. You can selectively expand
and collapse the hierarchy by clicking the triangle next to a heading name. And, just as you
can in Outline view, you can drag headings up or down within the Navigation pane to
reorganize your document; all subheadings and body text move with the heading you move.
Other outlining features are exposed when you right-click a heading in the Navigation
pane, as shown here.
Formatting Columns and Sections
Word uses sections to enable the independent formatting of parts of a document that have
a different page layout. A section break separates each part that has different page
margins, different orientation, a different column layout, or even different headers and footers.
