W hether you create simple or complex, short or long documents, being able to
quickly find what you need is an important part of working efficiently and
effectively. When a sales manager calls and asks a question about a new product
you’re offering, it’s important that you be able to find the information you need to answer
the question directly. When you are looking for a specific diagram you want to include in
another document, you don’t want to browse through your manual one page at a time
searching for it. You want to be able to move right to the diagram, copy it, and paste it into
the right spot in the new document with no hassle and the fewest possible number of steps.
If you’ve been using Microsoft Word for a while, you probably have favorite ways to get
around in the document. You might use Go To, which you can display by pressing F5. Or
perhaps you might simply press Page Down until you find the spot you want. This chapter
focuses on showing you a variety of ways to find—and bookmark, if you like—the content
you need in your Word 2010 documents. The big story here is the addition of the
Navigation Pane, which combines several of the navigation features that were available in previous
versions of Word and offers them to you in one convenient panel.
A Quick Look at Navigation in Word 2010
The big story in Word 2010 is the addition of the Navigation Pane, which builds on the
Document Map feature and enables you to move through the document by using
headings, thumbnails, or search phrases. With Word 2010, you can also use the following
techniques to get around in your document:
You can click the Page number in the status bar to display the Go To tab of the Find
and Replace dialog box. You can then enter the page you want to find and click Next.
You can use the Browse Object feature (available both at the bottom of the
horizontal scroll bar and in the Navigation Pane) to look for specific elements in your
document—headings, tables, graphics, footnotes, and more.
You can create and use bookmarks to mark a key spot in a document that you or
others can then move to easily.
