Creating books in Microsoft Word 2007
Whether you are working on a diploma dissertation, a handbook, an e-book or a prescription book, Microsoft Office Word 2007 can help you to write a book. Here you will find models that support you in the design and editing of the desired book types. Using Word documents saves your valuable resources and you don't have to begin from zero.
It is important to check your work for mistakes when you are entering the contents of your book. Included with Word is a spell checker, thesaurus, and word count to help you finish your book faster. Launch Microsoft Word 2007. Select "Books" from the selection and find the desired book category.
Customize the contents and delete what you don't want. Modify the display by choosing the "View" page and click on "Print Layout" so that you can see the header and footer lines simply. In order to go back to the contents of your paper, click on "Close header and footer" in the "Design" page.
You can use the orthographic checker to verify your book for misspellings by typing "F7" on your keypad. In order to use the search integrated in Word, choose the "Review" register card and click on "Research". Under " Search for: " please insert your query and push the "Enter" button to display the results. To open the Page Setup dialogue window, click on the "Page Layout" page layout and the dropdown button under "Page Setup" to open your page setup page settings.
Select the alignment (portrait or landscape) for your book by selecting the "Margins" page. Store your work by pressing the "Save" icon in the DeepL access bar.
Publications and Word 2007 (Microsoft Word 2007, MS Word 2007)
I' m sure many folks want me to include Word 2007 in the Perfect Pages releases, but the reality is that it will take me some while to do it - and indeed, it can never get done. One reason for this is that I'm sick of working with Word, and another is that the Windows and Mac releases are getting more and more different.
Word 2007 is a big setback for self-publication in general. Every new document is generated in the new, more effective and safer Word document formats. However, in order to be able to transfer older data you have to perform a "Save As". If you are converting an older version, you will be alerted that the layout may be changed.
In order to avoid this, you can make the translated documents "compatible" with previous releases. That' a little puzzling, but it means Word still converts the files to the new formats, but it applies compatibility preferences to avoid the layout changes, even if it transfers your own previous compatibility preferences for the work.
In fact, this is an enhancement over older Word releases that would use such preferences without asking. When you have a file that has already been formatted and no longer needs to be significantly changed, I recommend that you choose the layout-compatible version. While your work is still in progress, jump over compatibilities and let Word delete all these preferences.
However, then make sure you go and personalize these compatibility features as I suggest in Perfect Pages and later in this paper. Word 2007 has some new preference sets to be concerned about. You can find your Quick Access Toolbar preferences in C: \Documents and Preferences\ [Username]\Local preferences\Application data[Microsoft\Office.
You can still use the file storage option for your customized documents to place them in a location that can be accessed for backups - but this makes them less available in Word 2007 when you create a new one. Although the new Word 2007 user interfaces have attracted the most interest, there are also some interesting enhancements and workarounds.
I' ll talk about PDF exports and some new styles later in this paper, but here are some of the others. "This tries to see if you are using a word that is completely wrong, regardless of the way it is spelled - like the distinction between "to be" and "it is", or "to lose" and "loose". Context spell check is enabled or disabled in the Proofreading section of the Word options.
Together with the other Word automated text features, such as subscribing and compiling a directory, Word can now reformat a citation. Word 2007 for Windows allows Word to at last export an EPS document - something only Word could do for the Mac. However, you must use the new Word document type.
Word didn't get it printed in the right place. Inflating files and potentially damaged releases has been fixed! Not many of the typographical characteristics of Word have actually been altered, but they have all been shifted, so you need to learn anew where everything is. Some of the dialogs that provide the book typographical controls are somewhat concealed, but you can usually access them by using the arrow buttons at the bottom right of a ribbon group.
Click the dropdown button at the bottom right of the Paragraph group on the Home page to open the Paragraph Format dialogue field. Nevertheless, as with any Word release, I suggest you get a good one. Unfortunately, Word Help proves quite useful in this release with its "OR" search instead of "AND".
In order to spare you the search, I only tell you that the old file menus are not available in the ribbon at all. Simultaneously, Word 2007 is far less adaptable than older releases, at least for the medium users. It says that customized dashboards that reside in your Word documents from prior Word releases will still display in Word 2007, but you will not be able to change them.
For my part, I think it would be smarter to stay with what Word is offering now. If you' re new to the Ribbon - or at least want to save some getting used to it - there are several add-ons to help you get back to the traditional menu and the two main Word Ribbon tools.
They are not hackers - they use the extended customization possibilities that Word provides to the programmer. There' s more to be played here than in earlier releases, and I'm not pretending I know the best decisions for you. An important item is "Show Developers in the Ribbon ", which is in the Popular group.
Fortunately, there is no longer the "Fast Save" feature to have Word damage your file, but there is still one you need to disable for "Background Save". "However, it is not included in the standard storage settings - you must find it in the extended settings. Much better hiding compatibility features than before.
In order to find them, go to the bottom of the extended option lists and click on the small plus symbol next to "Layout options". "As with previous releases, first use the drop-down box above to select interoperability with the latest one. Notice that another submenu at the top of this window will apply these preferences to one of the currently open document or all later one.
So if you want to influence the actual and all later documentation, you have to use the option twice! They must also be applied individually to each available file it requires. To make the print layout preview less cluttered, select "Show whitespace between pages in the print layout view" in the display settings.
With the launch of "Quick Styles" and "Style Sets", the Word 2007 genres have become even more mighty and muddled. You can find the Styles group on the Home page of the Ribbon. Like other ribbon groups, you can gain fuller control options by using the down right arrows in the Style group.
You will see the Style Tasks area. It' a little different than the Word 2003 Style and Formatter tasks, but when you browse around, you'll find pretty much everything you'd want, as well as some fun addition. Use the Style Option panel (bottom right) to select only the" Recommended" style, and then the Manage Style panel (bottom, third pushbutton from left) to specify which style is being used.
All you can do is use the styles command that is displayed on the ribbon itself. First, you can see that the old Styles pull-down list from the formatting bar has been changed to the new Quick Styles Gallery. The one thing you might like is to get a preview of the print layout when you hover your mouse over a Quick Style - unless you have disabled it in Word settings, as I did.
On the right side of the Quick Style Gallery is the Change Clases drop-down list, from which you can select another "Style Set". "In other words, you can bring a completely different kind of stylistic definition for your current one. It' similar to adding a new artwork to your documents and thus exporting their designs - and that's exactly what you do.
Stylesets are included in specific Word themes that are saved separate from others and contain only them. Word provides a number of these drafts, and you can build your own. When you have modified the fonts in a single file and then modify the fontset just to try it out, you would delete your adjustments.
You can use a Change Preferences shortcut to return to the previous definition of the current type of file, but this only works if you have not stored and locked the new one. Rather than storing user-defined themes in a default theme, you can store them as user-defined themes and then use this drop-down list to quickly update or update these themes.
It may be more comfortable than adding or reattaching a default style sheet that contains these themes, which would do the same thing. If this is the case, you can either disregard the studied function or switch it off entirely via the Style area. Click on the Manage Style buttons below, go to the "Restrict" register card and select the "Block Quick Style Set switching" option.
" In order to lock it for all new dokuments, do this in your empty Normal.dotm style. In Word 2007, one of my major interests was the new ability to store directly into PDF. I' ve been playing around with it a lot and later sent a test data to my printers.
Ensure that your PDF is in the new Word 2007 standard data form. This means that if the data was generated in an older Word installation, you must select "Save As" in Word docs. You are now prepared to "Save As" in PDF, but you must be cautious to get the correct preferences.
For optimization, select "Default" and then click on the "Options" tool. You' ll have to do this every single case because the setting doesn't stay - or at least not always. Deactivate the " accessible version management tag " checkbox in the dialogue window. "This tag will significantly resize your files and is only useful for e-books and texts that are intended for being exported to other format.
Failing this, Word will decline to include any of the 13 most commonly used scripts. Now, Word can use some for different icons and numbers anyway, even if you don't know they are there. Yes, and if they are not embeded in your PDF document, this document will probably be declined by your printing company.
When you run a test using the Preflight function of Adobe Acrobat Professional, it looks as if Word 2007 itself is creating a PDF that is in some way better than what we have received from previous Word releases that work with Acrobat. At one side, which I print from each of the files, the text of a line was placed slightly differently in each example by compressing it, as the WordPerfect incompatibility settings allow.
Even more important, the Word-Exportfile in Acrobat's Preflight showed a number of CID-Type-2 signs, while the Acrobat-File showed none. Both are not crucial questions, but they have made me a little careful about the trust in Word. Incidentally, under an Microsoft-Adobe deal, the "Save as PDF" feature is not included with the application - but the first you launch the application from the Office menus, you will be guided through the process of downloading the add-on.
I first explored the PDF features of Word 2007, prepare some test data and send it to my Lightning Energy printers. Actually, they were my latest Perfect Pages file, because the book contains samples of a multitude of text and graphics in it. When you use Word only for textbook, you should be okay.
PDF documents that Word 2007 exports with the PDF/A feature seem to work well for texts intended for monochrome print. Acrobat is probably still your most secure if you have it, but if you don't, you probably won't have any problems if you make the document directly from Word.
Word has become totally non-professional when it comes to high-resolution images. First I saw this in Word 2004 for the Mac, and now it has come to Windows. It turns out that Word offers a selection of "target resolutions" with a settings that I can only describe as brilliantly concealed - in the Compress Images dialogue field, in the Adjust window of the image tools (which only appears when an image is selected) - but the highest permitted screen size is 220 pixels per inch for "excellent" render.
The image must be inserted by clicking on it instead of being saved in the image folder. You will then need to leave Word's PDF storage and use Acrobat or another application to generate your work. When you produce direct text book, Word 2007 with its PDF storage is a useful option for your inside data.
And if you also work with graphs, you're probably better off keeping to an older one. So Microsoft Word is joining the rush of today's best-selling softwares to serve the user's most basic needs, offering advanced features for user-friendliness. Looks like all the pros who stayed at Word 2000 had the best ideas.
