As an intern with NASA’s Space Camp program, you are involved with promoting related educational opportunities. You use Word to prepare a two-page flyer, ensuring a well-designed, error-free, and informative document.
Start Word. Download and open the file named Exp19_Word_Ch01_Cap_Space.docx. Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename.
Inserting text from an existing document can save time and ensure accuracy. For example, suppose you are reusing text from an earlier memo, making a few additions or modifications. Simply insert text from the earlier memo into the currently open document, and then modify as necessary. In this case, you include text from a earlier developed flyer that is appropriate for this one, saving time in retyping the text.
Display nonprinting characters. In the blank paragraph above Adult Space Academy on the second page, insert text from Family.docx.
Hyphenated text that should not be separated between lines can be forced to remain together by the insertion of a Nonbreaking Hyphen between the words.
Remove the two blank paragraphs after the Family Space Camp section. Replace the hyphen following the word three in the paragraph below the Adult Space Academy heading with a Nonbreaking Hyphen.
By viewing a document as multiple pages, you will often identify problems with layout or placement of objects. When working on a page in Print Layout view, you are less likely to consider its placement within the document as a whole, so it may be beneficial to view a lengthy document in the multiple page arrangement occasionally.
Preview the document in Multiple Pages. Note the poor placement of the text box on the third page. Remove the five blank paragraphs before the text box so that it moves up the page to a better position. Be sure that you do not delete the end of paragraph marker after Perform an extended-duration simulated mission! The document should display as two pages. Return to 100% view.
Change margins to Narrow. Insert a page break before the Family Space Camp heading at the bottom of the first page. Return to 100% view.
If major headings in a document are formatted in hierarchical fashion, collapsing the display to Outline view enables you to check the arrangement and even rearrange sections, if necessary.
Change the view to Outline. Click All Levels beside Show Level and select Level 1 to show only major headings. Click + beside Space Camp and drag the heading to position it above Space Academy. Click Close Outline View in the Close group.
Because nonprinting characters are displayed, you can see the page break indicator, so it is easy to delete.
Remove the page break on the first page along with the subsequent blank paragraph mark that precedes Space Academy. Insert a page break before the Family Space Camp heading.
Including a registered symbol beside the camp name provides proper legal acknowledgment to a product or entity.
Insert a registered symbol after the words Space Camp in the first body paragraph under the Space Camp heading. Ensure that the symbol is placed beside the camp name in the paragraph and not beside the camp name in the heading.
Including selected document properties as a header or footer helps to identify the document in printed form at the top or bottom of every page.
Insert an unformatted left-aligned footer with the Document Property, Keywords, inserted as a field. You should select from Quick Parts on the Header & Footer Tools Design tab when inserting the footer. Close the footer.
A watermark is often used to identify a document by its purpose or owner. In this case, it is identified as a copy.
Insert a horizontal blue watermark with the word Copy (type the text using the correct case). The Blue color is the eighth color shown in Standard colors.
Although not shown when a document is displayed or printed, document properties serve a purpose in identifying a document’s origin, owner, or purpose, among other things. They can also serve as search terms to help locate the file later.
Open Document Properties and add Space Camp Flyer as the Subject.
A flyer is typically intended for widespread distribution. By checking a document carefully for errors before the document is distributed, you are viewed as well-prepared and professional; your effort is more likely to be taken seriously.
Check the document for spelling and grammatical errors. Correct any errors, Use the thesaurus to identify a synonym for the word exciting in the first paragraph under the Adult Space Academy heading. The synonym you select should begin with the letter t. Change the word an that precedes the newly inserted synonym to the word a so that it is grammatically correct.
In the case of any document intended for distribution, you should ensure that it is readable by as much of your audience as possible. Checking for accessibility enables you to identify and address any concerns that might limit accessibility by those with various disabilities.
Check for accessibility and correct any problems identified.
