Editing and Formatting a Document
Preparing an FAQ Document
Long Meadow Gardens
Marilee Brigham is the owner of Long Meadow Gardens, a landscape and gardening supply company. The firm’s
large nursery provides shrubs and trees to professional landscape contractors throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul
area. At the same time, Long Meadow Gardens’ retail store caters to home gardeners, who often call the store
with questions about planting and caring for their purchases.
Marilee has noticed that retail customers tend to ask the same set of questions. To save time, she would like to
create a series of handouts designed to answer these common questions. (Such a document is sometimes known
as an FAQ—which is short for “frequently asked questions.”) The company’s chief horticulturist, Peter Chi, has just
finished creating an FAQ containing information on planting trees. Now that Marilee has commented on and cor-
rected the draft, Peter asks you to make the necessary changes and print the document.
In this tutorial, you will edit the FAQ document according to Marilee’s comments. You’ll also change the overall
look of the document by changing margins and line spacing, indenting and justifying paragraphs, and copying for-
matting from one paragraph to another. You’ll use various formatting techniques to enhance and draw attention to
specific parts of the document. Finally, before you print the FAQ document, you will add a comment, and look up
information using the Research task pane.
