Look professional, your way
In this document, styles like Heading 1 and Title have been applied to text (Home tab, Styles gallery). That lets you quickly overhaul the look of the whole document.
On the Design tab, point to the different Style Sets and watch the formatting change automatically.
Go to Themes and watch how colors and font change with the various choices.
When you get the design you want all your docs to start with, choose Set as Default.
Work together in real time
With your doc stored in the cloud, you and your colleagues can open it at the same time and see each other making changes.
How it works:
Go to File > Save As, and choose a OneDrive or SharePoint location. If you’ve never done this before, click Add a Place, and then add your OneDrive or SharePoint service by signing in.
Back in the document, click Share in the upper right, and invite people so they can edit with you. They’ll get email with a link to your doc.
When they follow the link, your doc opens for them in their version of Word, or in their web browser (Word Online).
If they’re using Word Online or Word 2016 and have agreed to automatically share changes, you’ll see each other working in the same document.
Note: The first time you do this in Word 2016, say Yes to automatic sharing.
Tip: If you’d rather send your own email, Get a sharing link instead and then create an edit link you can send.
