This hour explained how to better manage your Word documents through the use of document properties. The document properties contain count statistics as well as other pertinent information that stays with your documents. If you work in an office environment, the properties help maintain order when many people edit the same document.
Part of managing your documents is proofing them to make them more readable and correct. The proofing tools in Word include a spell-checker, grammar checker, hyphenation capabilities, and thesaurus. Although these tools don't replace human proofreading, they can help you locate problems.
Finally, you can customize almost any part of Word. This hour gave you just a glimpse of the many modifications that you can make to Word's settings. Take the time to peruse the pages inside the Options dialog box. Even advanced Word users forget some of the options that can make their editing lives simpler. Check these Options dialog box screens frequently as you learn Word, and you will make Word work the way you want it to.
The next hour wraps up Word as you learn about its more advanced capabilities.
