Introduction to Microsoft Word 2010
  

Getting started :
For those who are not yet accustomed to band menu, new versions of Office, there is bad news: Microsoft intends to introduce them everywhere. But it is only a couple of days to work with such a tape, as completely forget the old reporting office. In Office 2010, developers have paid even greater attention to the tape, an extensively redesigned start page, making the tab "File". It contains all the settings and parameters of Word. The first paragraph of "Information" reflects all the properties of the document, as well as the parameters of its protection and restrictions of working with it.

The second - is "Latest". Here you can find all the latest open documents, and the right side is a list of places where they are located, integrated so-called quick access to the directory where the files reside.

The third item - "Create". This is a collection of templates, which is different preparations: envelopes, forms, resumes and much more. In addition to the built-in templates, you have the opportunity to find the necessary notes on his official website, specifically for the built-in search box on the site.

One of the most noticeable is the item "Print", which is an order of magnitude easier to work with printers. All the basic parameters control printing made to this page, so the user does not have to dig into a pile of dialog boxes to find "the very same" settings. All clearly laid out on shelves. Number of copies, select the printer, print settings - everything is in plain sight.
The last paragraph of "Save and send" - an innovation that was not present in Office 2007. Since the new version of Microsoft Office has decided to create the most favorable environment for the transfer of documents and create document sharing. Now some people may work on one document - of course, this finding is not new, but it deserves praise. A transfer files to colleagues has become easier: automatic conversion to PDF, send to the specified email address.

Formatting text in Word 2010 :
The new version of Word 2010 has dramatically expanded text formatting. The main example is the glow of the text, the formation of shadows and reflections. This module is called "animation options", it is very similar with all the familiar Word Art, which is present in previous versions, but has significant differences. The text is applied to one type of animation - the glow, shadow, reflection - can be edited like any other text in the document. That is, the program recognizes it, not as an image, but as plain text. To use one of these settings to the text, you must highlight text, go to "Home → Font and have an open tab to find the letter" A ", highlighted in blue. The drop-down menu you will be offered one of the styles, as well as individual options shadows, glows and reflections. These effects are similar in function with the same effects, which previously could be applied only to images.
The second improvement regarding the formatting of text - the possibility of formatting fonts OpenType. These fonts were developed by Microsoft and Adobe, and until recently were used only in professional applications. With their help, you can work with ligatures (several interconnected characters), as well as modifications to existing fonts. To do this in a dialog box "Font" on page "More" is a special Radel to configure fonts OpenType. Permission is such a thing as stylistic sets. This is a new opportunity to edit scripts, which affect the characteristics of symbols - for example, their elongation. Choosing one of stylistic options, you little to change the font, thus selecting the best and most liked.



An example of preparation of the document will serve as a guide for working with a text editor Word. First, copy the text from the site of the company. In Word 2010 improved the function inserts the user pressing the shortcut inserts can quickly select options inserted object: to preserve the original formatting, combine the formatting, save only the text. If, after insertion press Ctrl, then using the arrows, you can switch to insert mode, just watching the result. The Enter key confirms the selection. We will discuss the third paragraph "save only the text" because unexecuted text easier to format than the one that is full of formatting. The first thing we'll be formatting the headings of different levels. All the basic settings for editing the text are on the tab "Home". The first thing we do - change the font of the text in the section "Font" in Times New Roman, and its size set to 14. Then choose one and a half interval. Button "interval" is located in the "Passage" and is a badge with a few lines and two arrows on the vertical. Highlight the text and press this button, and then a list consisting of numerical parameters line spacing - set the value 1,5. To make the text in the document is nice and not look torn, it should be leveled. For registration papers, articles and other documents for the main text of the most frequently used "-justify". To apply the alignment to the text, select it and click on the button "-justify", which is located in the "Passage". In this case, our text would span the width of the entire page, and his right-hand side will be smooth.

To avoid these steps several times in each section, the easiest way to create a new style. To do this, allocate a piece of text, to which we have already implemented the necessary formatting, go to "Styles" and, opening the entire list, find the option "Create a selection as the new express-style". Click on it and in the window that appears enter the name of our style, if necessary it can be immediately edited by clicking on the Edit button. Once the name indicated, press the button "OK", and our style will appear in the list of major styles of Microsoft Word. In the future, it can be quickly applied to various parts of the text. To focus the reader on a certain phrase or word can be important to provide the text with bold, italic and underlined his mark Text. These elements are located in the "Font", here edited the text color. Use bold text to select the core team that first found in the instructions, the user can easily find them in the already read the text. The red note information from the category of "Warning", that is the basic mistakes that can make a user.But the editing of the text on this is not yet completed. We need to create a marker or numbered lists in those places where they are needed. To do this, allocate those rows, which subsequently must be a list, and in the "Passage" push the button "Tag" or "numbered", depending on what we need. We have finished editing the text and move on to insert graphic elements into our document.

Re: Introduction to Microsoft Word 2010

Inserting graphic :
Any instruction should be provided with explanatory pictures, and our guide is no exception. Therefore, the transition to the beginning of the document and in order to start adding images to illustrate the described actions. To insert an image into the document by clicking the Insert tab, under "Illustrations", here press the button "Figure". Open the guide by which we must choose the image to insert. Finding it on your computer and click "OK". After that, the image will be inserted in the place where the cursor was located. Parameters of the inserted image can be changed at any time. First, select the image by clicking on it with the left mouse button once and align it to center. When a picture is selected, at the corners you can see the black cube, which indicate the possibility of changing the size. If you pull the corners of the picture, it will change its size. When an item is selected, open a special tab "Work with drawings (format)" in it are all the picture settings. In the section "Text Wrapping" you can choose various options for the location of the picture in the text. In our case, it should be noted "the top and bottom, and preferably after the image indent by pressing Enter.




In Word 2010 added another interesting feature, such as "Crop Image", with its help you can not access the graphics editors, and on the fly to change the picture, clipped the parts that should not appear in the document. The new version of the popular text editor now has a screen capture of the monitor. It is located in the same section as the "Figure", and is called "Snapshot." When you run you have to select the screen area you want to capture. Once you "excise" portion of the screen, this piece will be automatically inserted in the place where the cursor is located. This new feature is very useful in the preparation of instructions or explanatory articles, where the text should be inserted screenshots. Besides it, Microsoft added the interesting graphic elements and named them SmartArt. They are ready-made components, diagrams, arrows, made at a high level. With the right group of them can make professional illustrations. This function will be used to emphasize the interaction of elements and add to his statement a closed circuit. To do this, move the Insert → Illustrations → SmartArt » and of emerging item, select your favorite pattern. After clicking "OK" this image will be automatically inserted on the page, where there was a cursor. For each individual unit is editable fields that can spend less effort on the design, immediately proceeded to his editing. We inscribe the text in each block, and on this work with SmartArt elements will be completed.


Headers and footers and footnotes :
We must be organized and set up headers and footers footnotes. Footnotes are required in order to specify the description of a new term or an explanation of any utterance. For example, in the course work and diploma projects for the student to create footnotes and references is essential for the design of their scientific work. We also follow this principle and create a few footnotes in our text. Suppose we have a citation, indicating that a new version of Word, an opportunity to change parts of the image - for example, to remove the background. First single out the proposal, which refers to this new feature, then turn to the menu "Links" and select the item "Insert footnote". Then at the end of the sheet will be a footnote in a figure "1", here you can describe in detail the thought or mention the source. We write this function only appeared in the new version until this is nowhere used. Now the text can be seen that the end of the sentence just above the letters is a small number "1", which indicates the number of footnotes. If you hold down the Ctrl key and click on the offer, we will automatically be transferred to a footnote. Similarly, you can go back from a footnote to the text. Headers and footers are designed to display the summary information at the top or bottom of the page. Such information may be the name of the book, article, author's name, etc. In our instructions, we will create headers and footers for even and odd pages. To do this, make a double-click an empty area on the top of the page, so we switch to edit headers and footers. In the Preferences panel note the item "Different headers and footers for even and odd pages. After that, in addition to the text "header» Word will indicate to what group it belongs (on the odd or even). On facing pages indicate "Quick to work in Word 2010, and on the odd -" Taken from website Microsoft ». Exit edit mode by clicking on any area located outside the header. In addition to the settings for even and odd pages, you can create a special footer for the first page. Since it is almost always a cover sheet, then, consequently, the footer should be empty. When footnotes, headers and footers are created, proceed to the critical point - the creation of contents.

Re: Introduction to Microsoft Word 2010

Once the headers are created, how the text and its key elements are - you can begin to build a table of contents. It is organized in literally two clicks. Select the menu tab "Links" and find there "Contents". Of the proposed template select favorite or edit the style of the table of contents for paperwork. Once we have chosen a template, table of contents will be inserted in the place where the cursor. In the same way and created the cover sheet. So, open the Insert → Main Page. Here, as in the case of tables of contents, you can choose a template. The advantage of ready-made templates that they help save time and not have to deal with formatting the text and its location on the sheet, everything is done automatically. Specify the name of our instructions, authorship, and year. On this, our work is completed - an instruction is ready for use.
