Using templates l.jpg

Using Templates

  • A templateis a file that already contains the basic elements of a document, such as page and paragraph formatting, fonts, and text.

  • You can customize the template to create a new document that is similar to the original.

  • Word contains many templates you can use to create documents. Some are installed on your computer, and others are available on the Microsoft Office Online Web site. To use an installed Word template, click the Office Button, and then click New.

Using Templates (continued)

  • To create a template, you need to save the document as a template. Click the Office Button, point to Save As, and then click Word Template.

  • To create a new document based on your template, open the New Document dialog box. In the list on the left, under Template, click New from existing. The New from Existing Document dialog box opens.

  • After you make changes to this document, you can save the document as you normally would.

Using mail merge l.jpg

Using Mail Merge

  • Mail merge combines a document with information that personalizes it. For example, you might send a letter where in every letter, the text is the same but the names of the recipients are different.

  • The document with the information that does not change is called the main document.

  • The data source is the file containing the information that varies in each document.

  • Merge fields are placeholders that are replaced with data from the data source when you perform the merge.

Creating and printing envelopes l.jpg

Creating and Printing Envelopes

  • Addressing envelopes is easy using Word. Click the Mailings tab on the Ribbon. In the Create group, click the Envelopes button to open the Envelopes and Labels dialog box with the Envelopes tab on top.

  • To print the envelope, insert an envelope in your printer, click Print, and then click OK in the Print dialog box.

  • To see the envelope layout before you print, click Add to Document. The envelope appears at the top of the current document.

  • Type the address you want to appear on the labels. The default is to print a full page of the same label. If you want to print just one label, in the Print section, click the Single label option button.

  • To print the labels, insert a sheet of labels in your printer, click Print, and then click OK in the Print dialog box.

  • To see the layout of the labels before you print, click New Document. A new document opens with the labels.

Collaborating with a workgroup using comments and tracked changes l.jpg

Collaborating with a Workgroup Using Comments and Tracked Changes

  • The process of working together in teams, sharing comments, and exchanging ideas for a common purpose is called workgroup collaboration.

  • The team meets to review each other’s work, comment on it, and suggest changes.

  • When you make certain changes to a document, Word identifies the changes with the user name.

  • To change the user name that appears for these changes, you need to open the Word Options dialog box. Click the Office Button, and then click Word Options at the bottom of the Office menu.

Collaborating with a workgroup using comments and tracked changes continued l.jpg

Collaborating with a Workgroup Using Comments and Tracked Changes (continued)

  • One way to collaborate is to send a document out for review. Each person can insert comments in the document.

  • To insert a comment, either position the pointer or select the text you are referencing. On the Ribbon, click the Review tab, then in the Comments group, click the New Comment button.

  • A tool called Track Changeskeeps a record of any changes you or a reviewer makes in a document. If you turn this feature on, any changes made are marked in the document.

  • To turn on the Track Changes feature, click the Review tab on the Ribbon, and then, in the Tracking group, click the Track Changes button.

  • To combine documents, click the Review tab on the Ribbon. In the Compare group, click the Compare button. On the menu that opens, click Combine. The Combine Documents dialog box opens.

  • Look over the combined document carefully to make sure the results are what you expect.
