Course Overview

  • Outline is a powerful tool for setting up a structure for list items in Word.
  • You create an outline by selecting the Outline command from the View tab or by clicking on the Outline View button at the bottom of the screen. This launches a new tab on the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  • Outline View displays a basic document framework to assist with re-arranging information.
  • Promote and Demote buttons are used to display paragraphs with up to nine different text levels.
  • The plus symbol indicates further item sub-levels. Clicking on a plus or minus symbol selects a heading and any sub-levels.
  • Use the Collapse button to hide text levels or show them using the Expand button.
  • To number an outline use the Multi level List button in the Paragraph group.
