Document Formatting

Document formatting is used to change the appearance of a document to make it more interesting and easier to read. It also includes adding headers and footers, page numbers, tables of contents, cross references, and indexes.

Word has several views in which you can work. To select a different view, click the appropriate button on the lower-left part of the screen. The view most users prefer is the Page Layout View.

to adjust the zoom of the document. For a custom zoom, click in the field and type a custom zoom, then press Enter.
