Working with Multiple Windows
You can simplify working on multiple Word 2007 documents at the same time by arranging the windows on screen so they are all visible.
Arrange Document Windows
The Arrange All command makes viewing multiple windows on screen at the same time as easy as eating a bowl of cornflakes
- Click the View tab on the Ribbon
- Click the Arrange All button in the Window group
The windows are stacked horizontally on top of each other making all of the open documents visible
Maximise the windows again to return to a full screen view of your documents
Compare Documents Side by Side
One of the best ways of comparing documents is to view them side by side.
- Open the two documents that you want to compare
- Click the View Side by Side button in the Window group of the View tab
- Two controls are activated when viewing documents side by side
If only two documents are open, they are shown side by side.
If several documents are open, the Compare Side by Side dialogue box is shown asking you which document you wish to compare with the active document (document you were using when you clicked the View Side by Side button)
Synchronous Scrolling - Allows you to scroll down both documents at the same time
Reset Window Position - Adjusts the size of the windows so that they share the screen equally
Click the View Side by Side button again to turn the feature of.
