Word 2010 New Features shows how to use the features in Microsoft Word 2010 to proficiently create professionally formatted and richly illustrated documents. Author Gini Courter shows how to use its collaboration and saving tools and takes a complete tour of the Backstage file management system. The course also covers text effects and SmartArt layouts, improved image editing tools, and workspace customization options. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you are a premium number of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files are contained in a single folder. I'd encourage you to drag that onto your desktop, or your My Documents folder - somewhere else you can find it easily. Inside the Exercise Files folder, we have five chapters - 0-4 - of exercise documents, and then Images folder.
In the exercise's folder, for example Chapter 03, you'll find numbered documents that we'll use with each of the different titles. So, for example, 03_01 has two documents: one an Excel Inventory chart, and the other a Word document that we'll be inserting that chart into. So, there are two to open up here. If we take a look, for example, at 03_03_Graphics, it's simply a document in some particular state that you'll then work with to make some changes to the document to use the new features in Word 2010.
There is also a folder of images. The images are used at different times in the course. They're not used for any specific movie, but as you need images to use, we'll just go grab images here. There are two exceptions to that. We'll be using the logo at a particular time in order to look at making the background disappear. Then there is a need to correct some photos. We have a group of photos that are badly in need of correction. So, when you need a photo to touch up, these photos already look good, but the photos in need of correction are available to you, so you can practice your photoediting techniques.
If you're a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can still follow along from scratch using your own documents and your own images. Let's get started!
