Getting a Better Look at Your Documents
Print Layout view
Switch to Print Layout view to see the big picture. In this view, you can see
what your document will look like when you print it. You can see graphics,
headers, footers, and even page borders in Print Layout view. You can also
see clearly where page breaks occur (where one page ends and the next
begins). In Print Layout view, you can click the One Page, Multiple Pages, or
Page Width button on the View tab to display more or fewer pages on your
Web Layout view
Switch to Web Layout view to see what your document would look like as a
web page. Background colors appear (if you chose a theme or background
color for your document). Text is wrapped to the window rather than
around the artwork in the document. Book IX, Chapter 2 explains how to
save an Office file, a Word document included, as a web page.
Switch to Outline view to see how your work is organized. In this view, you
can see only the headings in a document. You can get a sense of how your
document unfolds and easily move sections of text backward and forward in
a document. In other words, you can reorganize a document in Outline view.
Chapter 8 of this mini-book explains outlines in torturous detail.
Read mode zooming
While you’re in Read mode, you can
doubleclick (or double-tap) a table, image, or chart
to enlarge it on-screen and get a better look
at it. Moreover, after the item gets enlarged,
you can click the Zoom button (the arrow) to
enlarge it several times more.
To shrink an item back to size, press Esc or
click on-screen (don’t click the item itself).
