Chapter 9. Reviewing Documents

Chapter 9. Reviewing Documents

Proofreading your documents is always an important step in any situation, especially when you’re sharing the documents with others. Since we’re not all trained editors, Word offers some handy tools to help us check over our documents for errors and tools to help us locate text and look out for hidden data. You may have already noticed Word’s AutoCorrect feature kicking in whenever you misspell a common word, such as teh instead of the. AutoCorrect is turned on by default, but you can add more misspellings to its list for words you personally struggle to spell correctly.

Speaking of spelling, Word also automatically checks your document’s spelling and grammar as you type. You can turn this feature off and choose to activate it only when you have a final document ready to proof. If you need to quickly replace a word with another word throughout your document, you can employ Word’s Find and Replace tools. You can also check over your document for hidden personal data and remove it before sending the document off. Lastly, you can use Word’s Track Changes feature to review changes from multiple authors to a single document.
