The User Interface Let’s Get Comfortable with the New Look

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks!” Or can you? Well it may be possible if the new trick is easier to learn and perform than the old trick. The same is true for learning Microsoft Word 2007. If you’re familiar with earlier versions of Word, it’s time to drop it like it’s hot! After all, would you rather work harder or smarter? Well smarter of course! Microsoft Word 2007 is informative and fun to use. Features like Ribbon, Live Review, and Galleries, which are all a part of the new Fluent User Interface (FUI), make Microsoft Word 2007 more efficient and easy-to-use. The magical Ribbon alters to display features and options that are relevant to the task you’re working on. In addition, the Ribbon organizes commands in a clear and concise way. Live Preview enables users to view various styles of layouts without changing the document. And, thanks to Galleries, beginner users can create professional documents in a matter of minutes! The Word 2007 layout, or User Interface, is totally transformed! Talk about working smarter! We have a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get started!

The User Interface

Quick Access Toolbar The Quick Access Toolbar is a group of buttons that are linked to frequently used functions, also called Shortcut Buttons. At first glance, this new feature looks very limited. However, you can customize this feature by adding your favorite functions at the click of a button . Setting Up the Quick Access Toolbar To add common features to the quick access toolbar: 1. Click the Quick Access Dialogue Button . 2. Click to select the appropriate feature to be listed on the toolbar (New, Open, Quick Print etc). 3. Repeat to add additional features. To add commands from the ribbon not listed there: 1. Click the Quick Access Dialogue Button . 2. Click More Commands. 3. Browse for and select the command you wish to add from the left pane. 4. Click the Add Button. 5. To change the order of the commands, click the move up or down button

4


The User Interface

The Title Bar The Title Bar is located at the very top of the screen. It displays the name of the document you are currently working on. If the document you’re working on has not been named, the Title Bar will display Document X (X being a number).

The Status Bar Current page

Word count

Page View

The Status Bar is located at the bottom of the screen. This is where detailed information about your document is located, such as: word count, current page number, as well as the number of pages in your document. In addition, you can also change the view and zoom in or out of your document with this feature.

5


The User Interface

The Office Button Located in the upper left hand corner of the Title Bar, the Office Button is the redesigned “File Menu” of previous Office versions. When this button is pressed, options such are “Open,” “New,” “Save” and “Print” are displayed.

The Mini Toolbar The Mini Toolbar provides easy access to the most frequently used formatting commands. Instead of using the right click of the mouse to view this option, simply highlight the text and it will automatically appear.

In the diagram above the Mini Toolbar reveals itself just above the highlighted text.

6


The User Interface

The Ribbon

Here lies the control center for editing your document. The new Ribbon is what I call the artificial intelligent Menu Bar. The Ribbon is context sensitive (it’s modified to suite what you’re working on, or have selected in your document). The new Ribbon makes formatting and designing your document much easier, with less effort.

Live Preview

Live Preview allows you to preview how a given Gallery command can alter your document first, before it actually happens. Once your mouse is positioned over any Gallery image, you will literally see a live preview of how your document would look. This is a cool feature, to see it in action watch the video tutorial.

7


Preparing the Work Space Rulers Rulers offer a graphical representation of your margins and spacing. It’s also a quick way to adjust your margins without going through the menus or memorizing keyboard shortcut keys. We’re going to need these Rulers, so let’s turn them on.

By default Rulers are turned off. To turn them on: 1. Click the View tab on the Ribbon. 2. In the Show/Hide group click the empty box next to Ruler to display them.

View Tab Show/Hide Group

8


Preparing the Work Space

The Quick Access Toolbar The Quick Access Toolbar is a one-click solution to frequently used functions. This feature greatly reduces the time it tales to perform repeated actions. Throughout this tutorial, we will open, save and print sample documents. Let’s setup the Quick Access Toolbar to help us quickly perform these tasks.

1. Click the Quick Access Dialogue Button . 2. Click New to add it to the toolbar (Options with check marks are already added). 3. Repeat to add “Open” and “Quick Print” to the toolbar. Too many shortcut keys add clutter and reduce interaction response time, so keep it moderate.

Formatting Text Selecting Text If typing text onto the screen was all there was to creating professional documents, this tutorial wouldn’t be a necessity! Often times after typing a document, you may realize that you’d like to make adjustments to make your document more appealing. Before you can make those changes, Word has to know what it is that you’d like to change or adjust. This is called selecting text. Text can be selected a character (one letter) at a time, by word, sentence, paragraph or you can select the entire document. Here are some tips that will help make selecting text a piece of cake.

To select one or more characters:  Left Margin

Click and drag over character(s).

To select one word:  Double click within the desired word. To select an entire line:  In the Left Margin of the document, click once directly across from the desired line of text. To select a paragraph:  Triple click anywhere within the paragraph Or  In the Left Margin of the document, double click directly across from the desired paragraph To select the entire document:  Triple click in the Left Margin Pane of the document

Formatting Text

Editing Text Changing the look of your documents text is by far one of the most effective ways of enhancing the appearance of your document. Doing so, will draw your reader’s attention, evoke emotion, and or highlight important points in your document.

The Font Menu Group is located on the Home Tab of the Ribbon.

To change text appearance: Select the text you want to change, while the text is selected click any of the enhancement tools in the Font Menu Group. Bold Text Tool

Formatting Paragraphs

Indenting Indentation is used in many written languages to signal the beginning of a new paragraph. Maybe I’m an old fogy, but indented paragraphs are the signature of documentation. Professionalism, organization, and intelligence are projected through an indented document. While various types of indentation are used, the most common are First Line Indent and Paragraph Indent.

In this diagram the “Home Tab” contents are displayed. The Increase Indent Button the Paragraph Group.

is located in

First Line Indent The First Line Indent Button, located on the ruler’s pane, will only indent the first line of the paragraph.

1.

The most popular way to add a first line indent is by pressing the tab key. You can also set up automatic indentation by configuring the first line Indent button. All paragraphs typed thereafter will automatically be indented.

2.

To setup First Line Indentation: 1. Click the tab setup button until the First Line Indent button is displayed. 2. Then click on the ruler where you would like your indents to begin. Save yourself from headaches. Never, never, never use the space bar to create indents or tabs.

Paragraph Indents will indent the entire paragraph not just the first line. To setup Paragraph Indents: 1. Click anywhere within the paragraph or select multiple paragraphs to indent. 2. Then click the Increase Indent Button. Below is an example of First Line Indent. Notice that only the first line of the paragraph is indented. Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

Below is an example Paragraph Indent. In it, all the lines in the paragraph are extended half an inch to the right and will continue with each press of the increase indent button.

Formatting Paragraphs

Alignment / Justification In Word 2007, justification of a paragraph applies to the entire paragraph. This is true if the entire paragraph is highlighted, or not highlighted. To apply justification to a single line of text, be sure to press the “enter” key at the end of the line of text. The text is then recognized as a paragraph and can be modified from the text above and below it.

In this diagram of the “Ribbon” the “Home Tab” contents are displayed. The Alignment Buttons are located in the Paragraph Group. Left Justified Peter Piper picked a pack of pickled peppers. He must like peppers.

Creating Tables Inserting a New Blank Table Tables are used to create a number of different elements in Microsoft Word 2007, such as calendars, inventories, and lists. There are few ways to create a table in Word, in this example we will insert a new blank table.

Figure 1

To insert a new blank Table: 1. On the Insert Tab Click the Table Button listed in the Tables Group. 2. From the Tables Drop Down Menu hover your mouse over the squares to enable a Live Preview of an auto generated Table. 3. Click on the square that gives you the appropriate Row/Column configuration for the table you wish to create. Clicking on the last highlighted square will generate a table within the margins of your document. The Live Preview is an exact preview of how the Table will fit in your document. In the capture to the left, we are creating a 3 row, 3 column Table, which creates the table you see above (figure 1). Notice that this method creates a table with equally sized rows and columns. Pressing the tab key in the last cell creates a new row of cells. When you are finished with your Table, click anywhere above or below the outside of the Table outline.

Creating Tables

Converting Text to Tables If you’ve ever had to copy text into table you may have wondered, there has to be an easier way. Well call me Mr. easy (never mind). Hope this helps you in the future. Let’s take this grocery list and convert it to a table. First we need to tell Word how to separate the data into cells. The character (comma) we use to do this is called a delimiter. Below (Figure 4) is the original list. Grocery List 2 One Gallon Jugs of Vitamin D Milk $2.99 3 Loafs of Wheat Bread $1.69 Figure 4 3 One Dozen Grade A Eggs $1.49 To Convert Text to Tables: 1. Place Delimiter Character (comma) after each cell data group.

The In Line With Text option forces an image to align with the line of text in which it was inserted, making it impossible to move the image freely. To allow an image to be moved freely within your document, choose an option other than In Line With Text.

26


Working with Pictures and Objects Wrapping Style Options explained In Line With Text The rules that govern text are applied to the graphic and treats it as such. This makes the graphic hard to move around and generally aligns text at the bottom of the graphic if there is room. Square Wraps the text in a square shape around the image. The graphic is no longer treated as text and can be moved about freely. Tight If the graphic has a transparent background and in the proper format Word can wrap the text to the graphic and not as a square, otherwise it will wrap the same as Square. Behind Text / In Front of Text No text wrapping, the Graphic is placed behind or in Front of your text. Top and Bottom Wraps text above and below image(no text on the sides). Through Wraps the same as tight but will flow through any open areas of the graphic. Again only objects with transparent backgrounds or proper format will work, otherwise it will look the same as Square. Square

Marking Your Document Marking the end of a page. There are several ways to mark the end of your pages in Word. However I have found that certain edits may cause your End of Page markings to alter text or formatting of pages in your document unexpectedly. I have found the method below to be most reliable. To Create an End of Page Break: 1. Place Cursor at the very end of the last character for that page. 2. On the Page Layout Tab, Click the Breaks Button located in the Page Setup Group. 3. Click Page, to create a page break.

Marking the end a Column. Word will break your columns automatically for you. There may be times when you need the columns to break differently. A column break will force the end of the column and move that text to the beginning of a new column. To create an End of Column Break: 1. Place the Cursor at the point you want the column to break. 2. On the Page Layout Tab, Click the Breaks Button. 3. Click Column, to create a column break. Note: When adding columns to a page, it disrupts the page number sequence, if you are printing out page numbers. Don’t take my word for it, here is a quote from the Microsoft Website. “Page numbers are a section property, not a document property —so page numbering might change when you add a section break.” (A continuous section break follows your Columns) To correct your page numbers: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Double click the Footer of the page that contains the column. On the Design Tab Click the Page Number Button located in the Header & Footer Group. Click Format Page Number Click the Start At Radio button and type the page number that should be displayed. Press OK.

Marking Your Document

Creating A Reference In Word marked references are used to Create Indexes, Table of Contents, Table of Figures, Cross References, Bibliography pages, Footnotes etc. The methods are quite similar, so we’ll discuss one.

Creating a Table of Contents If you have ever had to create a Table of Contents for a large document and had to remove a page after editing your document, you may have had to redo your TOC. Word can automatically create your TOC and if you need to make changes, a single key press is all it takes to automatically update the table of contents to reflect the new headings or changes in your document. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Click where you want to insert the table of contents. On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and click Index and Tables. Click the Table of Contents tab. To use one of the available designs, click a design in the Formats box. Select any other table of contents options you want

As you Type your document: 6. Select the text you want to mark for the TOC. 7. On the References Tab, click Add Text located in the Table of Contents Group. 8. Choose a level for the selected text

The Start of a Revolution ................................ Level 1 The Boston Tea Party.................................. Level 2 The East India Company.......................... Level 3 You are now setup for a one (two) click update. When your document is complete: 9. On the References Tab click the Update Table Button 10. Click the Update Entire Table Radio Button 11.

Marking Your Document

Page Numbering Your Document I was seventeen and running to my Theory of Knowledge class. In my hand was a 23 page Essay that I completed early that morning because I waited till the last minute to do it. Then it happened. I fell. Papers went everywhere and I had to put them back in order. If only I had numbered the pages. If you feel the need to number your pages here’s how. To page number your document: 1. From the Insert Tab, Click the Page Number Button located on the Header & Footer Group 2. Select where you want your page numbers to be displayed.

To remove the page number from the first page:

Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher

1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3.

Click anywhere in the document. On the Page Layout tab, click the Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Layout tab. Under Headers and footers, select the Different first page check box, and then click OK. On the Insert Tab, in the Headers & Footers Group, click Page Number Click Format Page Numbers. In the Start at box, type 0.

That’s it.

Windows Speech Recognition For those of you who are using Windows Vista, there’s a program installed called Window’s Speech Recognition. With this program users can interact with or control their computer. Although dictating in Microsoft word is not a new feature, it has been greatly improved and deserves a second look. There are few things to remember when using window speech recognition:

When the program makes a mistake, use the “correct” command instead of “select”. Greater love hath no man can this, that he lay down his life for a friend. In the dictated sentence above, the word “can” should be “than”. To make the correction: say “Correct can” In the list that is displayed say the number corresponding to the correct word (for this example you would say “2”). Say OK If the word is not in the list, say the word again. If the word is still not listed Say “Spell it” Spell the word then say “OK”. Windows Speech Recognition has now learned not to mistake “can” for “than”. Here are some other commands that will help you in Word.         

To select a word – Say “Select word” To select a group of words – Say “Select first word through last word” To correct a word – Say “Correct word” To start a new paragraph – Say “New paragraph” To start a new line – Say “New line” To delete a sentence – Say “Delete sentence” To move cursor to end of sentence – Say “Go to end of Sentence” To move cursor to end of paragraph – Say “Go to end of Paragraph” To move cursor to end of document – Say “Go to end of Document”

These are only the basic commands, for more information using Windows Speech Recognition, see my tutorial on Windows Vista.
