Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing program on the market, even for the most uneducated computer users, it is intuitive and supported by the powerful Microsoft Office suite.
Using cloud-based applications such as Google Docs, Word has evolved over the years. Online subscriptions provide access to multiple devices as well as a free cloud-based version of Word. Despite fierce competition, Microsoft software is still the tool of choice for producing important documents. So why not? It is reliable, customizable and has many built-in features that you may not have tried. Read on for some hidden techniques that only super users know.
Word has the power to not only assess your grammar and spelling, but also the complexity of your writer. For example, does your writing meet the level of understanding of someone pursuing degree after degree, or if someone is still learning their shapes and colors?
Word uses language tests such as the Flesch Reading Ease test, which calculates a score on a 100-point scale. The higher the number, the easier it is to understand. Office’s own documentation suggests that you want a score between 60 and 70.
In addition, Word will run a similar language test, the Flesch-Kincaid Class Level Test, which will tell you what US class level a text is written for; most documents should aim for between 7.0 and 8.0, says Microsoft.
To use this feature, you must first turn it on by navigating to File> Options> Proofreading. Then select Show readability statistics under spelling and grammar. Now when you ask Word to run a spell checker, it will also generate the document’s readability statistics.
Sometimes you will use the document over and over and update only some important details. If this is a document that contains a date and / or time (like letters), then a neat little trick is to let Word automatically update the date.
Click the “Date and Time” button on the “Insert” tab, and a pop-up window will appear. Click on the desired date format, then click on the “Automatic update” box in the lower right corner. Now, every time you open (or print) a document, the date is automatically updated.
