Module 3 is an introduction to word processing.
Microsoft Word offers three ways to open a new, blank document file:
Click the New button on the Standard toolbar.
Choose New from the File menu.
To copy or move text, select the text and choose Copy or Cut from the Edit menu. Position the cursor where you want to copy or move the text to and choose Paste from the Edit menu.
To reset text format options, choose Font from the Format menu and choose the appropriate options. Select the text first if you want to apply the format options to only a section of text.
A style is a set of formats that you can apply at the same time by choosing the text and selecting the appropriate style from the Style control's drop-down list on the Formatting toolbar.
A paragraph mark is a nonprintable character that determines the end of a paragraph. To insert this character, press Enter to force the cursor to a new line.
A soft carriage return forces text to the next line, but you don't insert one manually. Instead, the software enters the character when the text reaches the right edge of the document and magically wraps to the next line.
Rows and columns of cells compose a table that you can then fill with text or graphics as a way of organizing and presenting information that doesn't belong in the typical paragraph. To insert a table, click the Insert Table tool.
To insert a picture, image, or chart into a document, choose Picture from the Insert menu. Then, choose the appropriate option: From File, From Scanner or Camera, or Chart.
A mail merge is the process of merging two documents into a new document. You begin with two documents: the main document contains the body of a letter or memo, and the data source contains the data that the mail merge will copy into the new document to personalize each one.
To run a spell-check on the current document, press F7 or choose Spelling and Grammar from the Tools menu.
