There are different ways of looking at a document that you are working on, and these are called views in Word 2013. Some of these views are Print Layout View, Web Layout View, and Read Mode. In this lesson, Toby gives a demonstration of how each of these views functions so that you can use them to your advantage. There are also other views that are primarily used with a longer document, and these are the Outline View and the Draft View. Word 2013 is fully equipped with tools that help make your work easier and faster when working in these views. These tools include the Navigation Pane, Ruler, Gridlines, Zoom, and the Split Window option, among others.

Welcome back to our course on Word 2013. In this section, we’re going to look at Views in Word 2013 and basically by that we mean different ways of looking at the document or documents that you’re working on.
Now so far in this course, we’ve primarily been using Print Layout View and in this view the document or documents we’re working on look most like they will if they are printed. There are some alternative views and each of those alternatives has its own use. Now a couple of them we can access using the buttons in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and the right hand end of the status bar. If you look down there, you’ll see that one of the buttons is actually highlighted at the moment, that’s the Print Layout View, that’s the one we’re using at the moment.
But there are two other buttons down there. One of them is for a new view in Word 2013 which is called Read Mode and the one to its right is Web Layout View. Now in Web Layout View, what you see is most how a page will look if it was displayed as a webpage, so if you saw it in a web browser.
Now to the right of these three buttons, there is a zoom control. I’ve mentioned this before. I’m not really going to look at the zoom control just at the moment. I’m going to come back to the zoom control in the next section. And in the section after that, I’m going to come back and look at Read Mode, the new view.
So at the moment we’re in Print Layout View.
Let’s quickly take a look at this document in Web Layout View. The difference is that we don’t get the pagination as though we’re printing on a sheet of paper. The text, obviously the content of the text is the same, but in a browser the way this is now, if you actually published this page as a webpage that is how it would look in a web browser.
Now as I mentioned before there are a couple of other views as well. If you go to the View tab on the Ribbon, you can see two other views. So if you look at the Views Group on the left of the Ribbon, you’ve got Read Mode, Print Layout, and Web Layout, the three we’ve talked about so far. But there are two other views. One of them is Outline View. Again, I mentioned that earlier on.
That is a view that you would primarily use with say a longer document, although in fact it can be used on any document. But in order for Outline View to have any benefit, you need to have a structure to the document, so you need Headings and so on. And that’s something we’re going to come back to later in the course. But basically in Outline View, you can look at the structure of a document and you can show and hide sections and so on.
And then the other view options we’ve got here is Draft View.
Now with Draft View, the idea is that a lot of the content such as graphics is not shown and you just get a sort of rough draft of something. This can be quite useful for proofing something. So supposing you’re working on a document and it’s got lots of text, tables, graphics, all sorts of complicated things in it, but really all you want to do is to be able to read the text and maybe markup areas in the text.
