Do you often work with really long Word documents? Do you sometimes collaborate with others on the creation of these really long documents? Check out the latest episode of the Office Show for a quick tour of some of the new features in Microsoft Word 2010 that could make your life just a little bit easier.
We’ll show you the new Navigation Pane in Word. It makes it easy to find your way around long, complicated documents.
If you’re upgrading from Word 2003, the new fluent user interface will be new to you. Menus and toolbars have been replaced by the ribbon. The ribbon was introduced with Word 2007, and it’s made doing things like applying styles really easy.
You are using styles in Word aren’t you? No? Well, we’ll not only show you how to apply styles, we’ll show you how to create your own custom styles.
Collaborating on documents in Word has been made easy with the new coauthoring feature. We’ll show you how you can work with others in the same document without the worry of multiple versions sprouting up in email.
Yes, all this and a gratuitous reference to pirates and parrots!
