and tab groups. And now Backstage view brings together all the tools you need to
set program preferences, work with files, and protect and share your content. Other
user experience enhancements include the Navigation pane, which enhances the
power of your search capabilities, and Paste with Live Preview, which enables you to
preview various paste options before you add content to your document.
Improvements in authoring. Co-authoring, also known as simultaneous editing,
is the big story in authoring features for Word 2010, but you’ll also find great new
image features and text effects that help your content really stand out. What’s more,

smartphone to server—and back again—using any of the various access choices for Word
2010. You can also run Word 2010 on 64-bit systems to take advantage of the full
