Creating and Using Building Blocks
Throughout Word 2010, you find galleries that offer all kinds of choices for the design of
elements you add to your pages. For example, you can view and choose headers, footers,
page numbers, text boxes, quick tables, and more by displaying a gallery and clicking the
item you want. Each of the items in those galleries are actually building blocks—sample
elements you can insert into your document in the style you like best. Table 7-6 introduces
you to the existing building blocks and indicates on which tab you’ll find them.
