SOFTWARE TYPES

SHORT DOCUMENT TYPES INVOICE

Microsoft Word

An invoice is like a receipt it shows how much money you have and is normally used in businesses to show there pay.

This is a text based program and mainly used for formal letters , essays and any other typing purpose. There are many features in word and the ones that stand out are the template tool at the start as it has a lot of good templates and a wide variety. These will help the style of your document. Another is the page layout they give you many different ways of which you can customize your page like the page border and customize the margins and the size and setup of the page. Another tool I would use in word is the master page tool the use of this is that you can make every page the same and in the same place on the page.

ORDER FORM This shows what you have paid for and lists it out for you so that you can see it more clearly.

Microsoft publisher This is a more creative way of producing work and is usually used for leaflets. Formatting tool is the main tool in publisher. There are many features in publisher to help you along the are some main ones and some that help you a lot the main one for me is the start where you can chose from 1000’s of templates so you can get the correct layout and colour from just one template. As well as the colour palette is helpful and is a main feature as you can customize your own colour palette and use it throughout any work and you can also keep text style the same so that it goes throughout your work as well.
