Microsoft Word is a very flexible piece of software which can easily incorporate tables and pictures within text documents. This unit will show you how.
Controlling Page Appearance
Appearances can be very important in Microsoft Word, so in this section the course demonstrates how to make a few key changes to improve the look of your documents. In this section we discuss headers and footers, margins and page numbers.
Preparing to Publish a Document
In our final unit, we show you how to get your document out into the hands of others. We start with spelling and grammar checking, and then move on to printing your document.
