First Chapter

Chapter 18
More Than a File -- a Document

In This Chapter

  • Working on several documents simultaneously
  • Seeing more than one document
  • Working on two or more parts of the same document
  • Using the old split-screen trick

Word lives to serve the document, kind of the way parents (unbeknownst to them) live to serve their children. When a document is up all night, you're there. When a document develops aches and pains, you're there. When your document throws up all over the printer, you're there. But documents aren't there to torture us. They're there
