Help with MS Word; typing up series of notes

by winyard / April 15, 2005 3:55 AM PDT

I need to use Word to accomplish something which I know it can do but can't remember how to do it or what the feature/tool is called!

I've currently doing a coaching (football) course and I have a lot of written notes which I want to type up, but i don't want to just write them in a Word document as it will then be hard to find some of the info by doing that.

I seem to remember that with Word there is some sort of tool/wizard that will allow you to write headings with notes attached, and you can then easily look through the list of headings and thus find the notes you need.
I guess I've probably just lost everyone! but hopefully someone WILL know what I'm on about, and offer some advice;
or maybe someone can offer a better solution for typing these notes up?

MS Word: Outline View
by Kees Bakker / April 15, 2005 5:10 AM PDT tells all about it.

You can structure your tips in levels, say Chapter, Paragraph, Tip (with the tip consisting of a level 3 header and the text of the tip typed under the header), and use Outline View to see only chapter headings or paragraph headings or tip headings.

This is what you meant? I wouldn't call it a tool or a wizard, just a feature. But that doesn't matter at all, if you can do with it what you want.

Good luck,

Perhaps it isn't Word, but Outlook?

Outlook Notes can be rapidly made.
The Title is the text of the first line.
They can be categorized, even colorized for easier sorting.
You can place them into folders easily.
They can be easily searched.
They will print up easily.

I don't see it at the moment, but I'll bet you could easily print up just the titles, or a selection of titles, too.

Good luck.
