Getting a Better Look at Your Documents
Switch to Draft view when you’re writing a document and you want to focus
on the words. Clip-art images, shapes, and other distractions don’t appear in
this view, nor do page breaks (although you can clearly see section breaks).
Draft view is best for writing first drafts.
Splitting the screen
Besides opening a second window on a document (a subject of Book I,
Chapter 3), you can be two places at one time in a Word document by
splitting the screen. One reason you might do this: You’re writing a long report
and want the introduction to support the conclusion, and you also want the
conclusion to fulfill all promises made by the introduction. That’s difficult to
do sometimes, but you can make it easier by splitting the screen so that you
can be two places at one time as you write your introduction and conclusion.
Splitting a window means to divide it into north and south halves, as shown
in Figure 1-4. In a split screen, two sets of scroll bars appear so that you
can travel in one half of the screen without disturbing the other half. Follow
these steps to split the screen:
1. On the View tab, click the Split button.
A gray line appears on-screen.
2. Drag the gray line until the gray line is where you want the split to be.
You get two screens split down the middle. You can also split the screen
by pressing Alt+Ctrl+S.
When you tire of this split-screen arrangement, click the Remove Split
button on the View tab or drag the line to the top or bottom of the screen.
You can also double-click the line that splits the screen in two.
