Getting a Better Look at Your Documents
Resume reading
To help you pick up where you left off, the
Resume Reading notice appears when you
reopen a Word document. It tells you which
page you read most recently, the heading on
that page, and when you last viewed the page.
Click the Resume Reading notice (or the
Resume Reading icon) to go to directly to the
page you last read.

Chapter 1
Getting a Better Look at Your Documents
A computer screen can be kind of confining. There you are, staring at the
darn thing for hours at a stretch. Do you wish the view were better? The
Word screen can’t be made to look like the Riviera, but you can examine
documents in different ways and work in two places at one time in the same
document. Better read on.
Viewing documents in different ways
In word processing, you want to focus sometimes on the writing, sometimes
on the layout, and sometimes on the organization of your work. To help you
stay in focus, Word offers different ways of viewing a document. Figure 1-3
shows these views. These pages explain how to change views, the five
different views, and why to select one over the other. (Be sure to visit Book I,
Chapter 3 as well; it describes how to view a document through more than
one window and how to open a second window in a document.)
Changing views
Use these techniques to change views:
Click one of the three View buttons on the right side of the status bar.
On the View tab, click one of the five buttons in the Views group.
Read mode
Switch to Read mode to focus on the text itself and proofread your
documents. You can’t enter or edit text in Read mode. Everything is stripped
away — the Ribbon, scroll bars, status bar, and all. All you see are the text
and artwork in your documents. Read mode is designed for reading
documents on tablet computers.
