Browsing in Large Word Documents

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. I work with very large instructional documents with lots of elements (tables and graphics, for example) and browsing around a document trying to find things can be quite a challenge. Can you suggest any ways to make my job easier?

A. The last several versions of Word have a tool that I think you’ll find very helpful. You’ll find the tool, called a Browser (not to be confused with the Internet browser), in the lower-right corner of your Word screen. It’s a small, round button with a gray circle in it, situated between the set of double arrow keys.

Clicking on the button will produce this menu of icons, each presenting browser targets—things such as lists, graphics and tables. If you hold you cursor over the icon, a description of the target is disclosed.

Select the appropriate icon and click on it to initiate the search for that element. You then can use the corresponding doubleheaded arrows above and below the button to jump from place to place, stopping at the kind of object you selected.
