Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fast-paced and easy to read, this concise book teaches you the basics of Word 2007 so you can start using the program right away. Not only will you learn how to work with Word's most useful features to create documents, format and edit text, share the results and more, you'll also discover how to go beyond basic documents to handle graphics, create page layouts, and use forms and tables.

The new Word is radically different from previous versions, but with this convenient book, you can breeze through the new user interface and its timesaving features in no time with:



  • Clear explanations
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Lots of illustrations
  • Larger type
  • Plenty of friendly advice




Word is used primarily for word processing, but there's more to this powerful program than meets the eye. It also offers a staggering array of advanced features that were once found only in page layout programs and graphics software. Many of these features are hidden among Word's cluttered menus, and even the pros can't find them all. For Word 2007, Microsoft redesigned the user interface completely, adding a tabbed toolbar that makes every feature easy to locate.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's documentation is as poor as ever, so even if you find the features you need, you still may not know what to do with them. Word 2007 for Starters: The Missing Manual helps you master Word's redesigned user interface and gives you exactly what you need to create unique, attractive and effective documents.

Book News Annotation:

The abridged version of Word 2007: the missing manual focuses on the features most commonly needed to compose, format, edit, and print documents. Black and white screenshots illustrate how to change spacing, insert headers, translate text, plan long documents with outlines, organize information with tables, and add graphic elements.

Synopsis:

Rather than covering every detail, this concise book shows how to work with Word's most-used features and the new context-sensitive menus. Many of these features are already available in previous versions of Word. The new version, at last, makes the features easier to find.
