57 MS Word Questions And Answers

2⟩ Can I use the SHOW menu to remove revisions from a document in MS Word?

NO! When you remove the checkmarks by the items in the SHOW menu, it just hides the revisions. The revisions will show up the next time that the document is opened either by yourself or by the reviewers.

There is only one way to remove revisions and comments and that is by accepting or deleting them.

For subheadings, choose Heading 2, Heading 3, etc.

1. Place the cursor where you want to insert the table of contents.

2. Choose Index and Tables (or Reference, then Index and Tables) from the Insert menu

3. Select Table of Contents tab, then and select the style you want.

4. Choose OK to insert the table of contents into your document.

If you edit your document after creating the table of contents, you will have to update it:

12⟩ How do I share a document with someone who does not have my version of MS Word?

1. Choose Save As from the File menu.

2. In the Save as type box, select the file type you want to use.

someone else) choose Rich Text Format (*.rtf) or WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS (*.doc). All recent

word processing programs for Windows or Macintosh can read either of these formats. However,

the conversion is sometimes not perfect and any formatting Word cannot convert will be

discarded. See Can Word open WordPerfect files? for some related information.
