Feature| What You Say| Where You Click| Introduction| Today’s documents range from simple letters and lists, to forms, complex reports and papers that used to require a professional print shop. But one thing is common to all of them—your documents represent your ideas. That’s why you want them to be more than just words on paper. Word 2010 gives you the tools to create the professional, polished documents that help you express yourself effectively. SmartArt Picture Layouts| Office 2010 adds dozens of additional SmartArt layouts for a total of more than 130 different diagrams that you can create as easily as typing a bulleted list. In Word 2010, you can use the new SmartArt graphics picture layouts to tell your story with photographs or other images. If you already have pictures in your document, you can quickly convert them to a SmartArt graphic. Insert additional pictures in the SmartArt shapes of your picture layout diagram. Each shape also has a caption where you can add descriptive text. * Click the picture of boxes on a conveyer belt below Keys to Success * Click the Format tab on the Picture Tools contextual ribbon tab * In the Picture Styles group, click Picture Layout * Click the Bending Picture Caption List style (second row, fifth from left) * In the SmartArt text box type: * Products * Service * Value * Click the image placeholder next to Service * Navigate to the Demo folder and select Service. jpg * Click the image placeholder next to Value * Navigate to the Demo folder and select Value. pg * Click the SmartArt frame * Click and drag the right side of the frame until all images are on the same row| Picture Tools| Word 2010 brings many graphic enhancements to your work, so you can easily make the impact you want. Use the new and improved picture-editing tools to trim images and get just the look that you want. Another advanced picture editing option in Word 2010 is the ability to automatically remove unwanted portions of a picture, such as the background, to highlight the subject of the picture or to remove distracting detail. Note: You should practice these steps a few times before delivering the demonstration. * Click the picture of the earth below A Global Market * Click the Format tab on the Picture Tools contextual ribbon tab * Click Crop * Crop down the picture within a small margin of the earth on all sides * Click Crop * Click Remove Background * Resize the inner frame until the earth is entirely inside * Click Keep Changes| Picture Effects| You can now transform your images into compelling, vibrant visuals by fine-tuning the color intensity (saturation) and color tone (temperature) of a picture.
You can also adjust brightness, contrast, sharpness, and blurriness, or you can recolor the picture to better match your document content and to make your work pop. With Word 2010, you can now apply sophisticated “artistic” effects to your picture to make the picture look more like a sketch, drawing, or painting. | * Click Corrections * Click Color * Click Artistic Effects * Click Pastels, Smooth (fourth row, four from left) * In the
Picture Styles group, click Picture Effects * Click Shadow * Under Perspective, click the Below shadow * Click the Position button, then click the top-right position| Insert Screenshots| You can quickly and easily add a screenshot to your Office file to enhance the readability or capture information without leaving the program that you are working in. When you click the Screenshot button, you can insert the whole program window or use the Screen Clipping tool to select part of a window.

Unlike WordArt from earlier versions of Word, you apply text effects to actual document text, so you can still edit and spell check that text and even add text effects to paragraph, character, list, or table styles. Available text effects include gradient fills, custom shadows, reflection, glow, soft edges, bevels and more, as well as a range of preset gallery options that enable you to quickly apply a coordinated set of effects. * Scroll up to page 3 * Click the text box frame (make sure the text box is selected, but the cursor is not blinking in the text box) * Click the Format tab in the Drawing Tools contextual ribbon tab * Click the Text Effects dropdown * Point out the available text effects * Click Reflection * Click Tight Reflection, 8pt offset (third row, first option)| OpenType| Word 2010 also provides support for advanced text-formatting features that include a range of ligature settings and your choice of stylistic sets and number forms.
You can use these new features with many OpenType fonts to achieve that extra level of typographical polish. | Note: Many of these changes are subtle. * Click the Home tab * In the text box frame, select the word “letting” * In the Font group, click the Dialog Box Launcher * Click the Advanced tab * Click the Ligatures dropdown * Click Standard * Click the Stylistic Sets dropdown * Click 4 * Click the Stylistic Sets dropdown * Click 6 * Click Cancel| Recover Unsaved Work| It is now easier to recover a Word ocument if you close your file without saving, or if you want to review or return to an earlier version of the file you’re already working in. You can keep the last autosaved version of a file in case you accidentally close that file without saving, so that you can easily restore it the next time that you open the file. Also, while you are working in your file, you can access a list of the autosaved files from the Microsoft Office Backstage view. | * Close Word * Click Don’t Save * Open Contoso Business Plan (2007). ocx again from the Demo folder * Click the File tab * Click the most recent unsaved version in the Versions section * Click Restore * Click OK| Work Together More Effectively Feature| What You Say| Where You Click| Introduction| You may need to share documents with colleagues, classmates or friends, or perhaps you need to work with others on a team project.

Fortunately, Word 2010 gives you the power to get things done when and where you want.
In addition to viewing and updating documents in Word Mobile on Windows Phone 7, you can use Word Web App to view and edit your documents from any Web-connected PC. | Word Web App| Word Web App extends your Word experience to the web browser, where you can work with documents directly on the website where the document is stored. Word Web App is available for personal use in Windows Live SkyDrive, in organizations that have installed and configured Office Web Apps on their SharePoint site, and for professionals and businesses that subscribe to select Office 365 services. * Click anywhere to advance to the next slide| Word Web App (Read)| When you open your document in SkyDrive or SharePoint, Word Web App opens the document in the browser.
