You’ll notice these theme effects when you click an object in your document and choose,

Years ago I had a sign hanging on my then-cubicle wall: Save frequently and often . The
publishing company I worked for at the time used a mainframe computer that was almost
the size of a small room—and around 3 P.M. every day the server seemed to get sleepy.
You never knew when the system would crash and all your work on your current document
would be lost.
Thankfully today’s technology is more reliable—and smaller—than that. But the
warning still holds. Saving your file is as important as it ever was. Nobody wants to lose good
thoughts, touching paragraphs, well-phrased copy, or inspiring marketing material.
Re-creating documents we’ve already done once is agony.
Word 2010 helps you out in the Save department, both by preserving files you might have
forgotten to save and by making it easy for you to save files where and when you want to
save them. Some of the new Save features in Word 2010 include a tool that enables you to
recover unsaved files and the ability to save directly to your server, workspace, or SkyDrive
Before other authors can access and work on the files you save to a shared space, you
must have given them the necessary permissions to access the file and have posted the
file to a SharePoint Workspace or Windows Live SkyDrive account. You’ll find out more
about sharing files and co-authoring documents in Part IV, “Word 2010 As a Team
Effort, Anywhere, Always.”
