Here are several maneuvers that can help you juggle a lengthy Word document.
Your latest Microsoft Word document has ballooned to dozens or perhaps hundreds of pages. And working with such a lengthy document can be slow and awkward.
Thankfully, Word offers several options and features that can ease the pain of navigating, organizing, and viewing a long document:
- You can add page numbers to keep track of the pages.
- You can set up a Table of Contents to display different sections.
- You can zoom out to view multiple concurrent pages and turn on Split View to view different parts of the document at the same time.
- You can enable the Navigation Pane to more easily see and jump to a specific page.
As usual, I’m using Word 2016 via my Office 365 subscription. But all or most of the features I cover here should work the same in the past couple of versions of Word.
Open Word. Ideally, you’ll want to have a long document in front of you as I go through the different options. If not, just follow along.
