Use the Ribbon instead of toolbars and menus • When you first start some of the programs in 2007 Microsoft Office system, you may be surprised by what you see. The menus and toolbars in some programs have been replaced with the Ribbon, which is part of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. • The Ribbon is designed to help you quickly find the commands that you need to complete a task. • Commands are organized in logical groups, which are collected together under tabs. • Each tab relates to a type of activity, such as writing or laying out a page. • To reduce clutter, some tabs are shown only when needed. For example, the Picture Tools tab is shown only when a picture is selected.
When to Use Word • Most paper-based documents • Letters • Simple tables • Simple brochures and publications • Email • Outlook usually uses Word as its editor • Electronic documents • Simple Web pages
When NOT to Use Word • Complex publications • Instead use Microsoft Publisher, Adobe PageMaker, or Quark • Complex tables • Use Microsoft Excel • Complex Web pages • Use Microsoft Front Page
Use the keyboard Okay, keyboard people, these slides are for you. The Ribbon design comes with new shortcuts. This change brings two big advantages over previous versions of Office programs: • There are shortcuts for every single button on the Ribbon. • Shortcuts often require fewer keys.
Use the keyboard The new shortcuts also have a new name: Key Tips. To use Key Tips, start by pressing ALT. Next: • Press the Key Tip for the tab you want to display. For example, press H for the Home tab. This makes all the Key Tips for that tab’s commands appear. • Press the Key Tip for the command you want.
Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Office Word • The keyboard shortcuts that are described in this Help topic refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts might not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard. • For keyboard shortcuts in which you press two or more keys simultaneously, the keys to press are separated by a plus sign (+) in Microsoft Office Word 2007 Help. For keyboard shortcuts in which you press one key immediately followed by another key, the keys to press are separated by a comma (,).

Alignment of text The first impression and view of a document is very important for the reader. The options listed underneath are the most important ones. These can make the document nice looking, but also very bad. A professional document should have a standard font (like Times New Roman or Arial), appropriate size(normal text size 12),and black color. The layout of the text should make the reader comfortable – it should be easy to read. In thesis, or other large documents, the text is often aligned to both the left and right margins. This creates a clean look at both sides of the text. Additional extra space are put in between words as necessary.
