How to Use Outline View in Word 2007

Type and format your document using Word’s standard styles.

Any typing you do now is really list making, or organizing information in major topics, and then subtopics, and so on.

Word uses the Heading 1 through Heading 9 styles for your outline. Main topics are formatted in Heading 1, subtopics in Heading 2, and so on. The Body style can also be used in an outline, mostly for making notes and such.

All Word’s basic commands work in Outline view. You can use the cursor keys, delete text, check spelling, save, insert oddball characters, print, and so on. Don't worry about paragraph formatting.
