Learn to format your Word document
There is more to business communication than just text. Tables and images, for example, can communicate information more effectively and engage readers in a way that text can’t. Using the tools covered in this Microsoft Word tutorial will add variety to your document and help convey more information and ideas.
When you are dealing with a lot of data or content, or complex ideas, inserting a table into a text narrative in Word may help readers better understand the information you wish to convey. Similarly, like the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” putting imagery into your Word document can draw attention to important concepts and ideas and can help your readers understand the feelings or concepts you’re communicating. In this third Microsoft Word tutorial, you will learn how to format Word documents to best suit your business or personal needs.
In other other Microsoft Word tutorials, we have covered the basics of creating a document, saving and formatting simple texts in Microsoft Word. In our second Word tutorial class, we explored basic Word page layout. Looking for foundational knowledge in how to use Microsoft Word?
