One last way I'd like to show you for getting around your longer documents quickly is by using a document map or thumbnails. These two features are simple, but they can save you all kinds of time. So let's open up the document. We'll go to our Office button, click Open and from the lesson 19 folder of your exercise files, you'll find recipes 19G. Click that one and then click the Open button. So this is our recipe book. We've seen this before in previous lessons. It's a fairly long document, it's 30 pages, so moving around from section to section could take some time, but we've got those two features I was talking about to help save you some time.
It means that we need to go up to our View tab here on the ribbon and then go to the Show Hide group here and there's where you'll find the Document Map and the Thumbnails checkboxes. Let's start with the document map. When we click it, look what happens. The current page we're on, here's our cover page, is currently selected, that's the blue you see here, but to move from section to section, I can now just simply click on them here in my document map to move quickly around the various sections of my document.
Each of these selections is actually created based on headings that might show up throughout my document. So again, I can move quickly throughout my document just by clicking on the various headings. I do have a scrollbar to scroll down to see every single one of them and there's my last one down there, the ginger tea cake. OK, I'll scroll all way back up here. That's the document map. That's one way to navigate through your document. Another option is thumbnails and it's up here as well. When I click the Thumbnails, the document map is deselected, so that's automatic, and you can see what page I'm on here.
I get mini representations of each of my pages, so as I use the scrollbar to scroll up through the pages I see them underneath each thumbnail and to go quickly to that page, I just click on it right here in the navigation pane. OK, that's great. Now if I want to switch views again, I don't have to go up to the Show Hide group here on the ribbon. I do have a drop down at the top of the pane that allows me to change views. So back to the document map and back to thumbnails.
Alright, when I'm done using this, I can actually close it by clicking the Close button here at the top right corner of the pane itself or I can just deselect it here on the Show Hide group on the ribbon. Either one will close up the pane so I can continue just working on my document, save it out, print it, you name it.
