Master documents and subdocuments
Explanation
A master document is a document in which you insert a collection of other documents.
Each of these inserted documents is called a subdocument . It’s useful to store
subdocuments in a master document when you want to combine multiple documents to
form a single document, such as combining chapters to form a book. You can edit each
subdocument separately.
Inserting subdocuments
You can add subdocuments to a master document by using the Outlining tab, which
appears when you use Outline view. Subdocuments can be edited and formatted in the
same way as any other document.
To insert a subdocument:
1
Create a document that will become the master document.
2
In the status bar, click the Outline button to switch to Outline view. The
Outlining tab, shown in Exhibit 6-1, appears on the Ribbon.
3
In the Master Document group, click Show Document. Additional buttons,
including Create and Insert, appear in that group.
4
In the Master Document group, click Insert to open the Insert Subdocument
dialog box.
5
Select the file that you want to insert as a subdocument, and click Open.
