Viewing Different Sections of a Document Simultaneously

Provided by Molly Pell, Senior Systems Analyst

Using the Microsoft Word “Split Window” feature, you can view two sections of a document in the same window. I use this feature often to:

  • Make sure different sections use consistent terminology and formatting.
  • Compare “Contents” sections to the actual document.
  • Compare different views of the document.
  • Work on two sections at once.

To see two sections at the same time, select Window | Split from the Word menu, and the splitter appears. Just click where you want the document split, and then use the splitter bar to resize the sections.

Or even easier, grab the splitter bar, which is positioned above the vertical scroll bar. Just drag it to the location where you want the split

To remove the split, select Window | Remove Split from the menu, or drag the splitter back up to the top.

Thank you! Thank you! I just finished reading this document, which was part of a link in the recent Buzz newsletter. I have printed it for others to read, especially those skeptical on the powers of Access and its capabilities.
