Click OK to close the Customize box and apply your selections from the Bullets and
Numbering dialog box. If you plan to always use the outline in Outline view, youre
done; otherwise, consider switching into Normal or Page Layout view for further
refinement. You’ll discover that the nice, even indenting of your various headings in
Outline view may not exist in Normal or Page Layout view. As a result, you may have
to adjust the indentation of your various heading styles to make the indenting levels
correspond in the other views.
The Document Map
The Document Map doesn’t actually look like a map; it looks more like a portable
table of contents that’s open beside you as you read. It’s identical to the left-side
table of contents list you might find in an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) document, if you’ve
ever used one of those. No flipping pages—not even much scrolling (see Figure
6-12).
What’s in the Document Map
In essence, the Document Map is a navigating pane revealing just the headings in a
document. A heading, in this case, can be any text in one of Word’s built-in heading
styles, a style you’ve based on one of the built-in heading styles, or text to which
you’ve applied an outline level.
Viewing and Navigating the Document Map
To see the Document Map, choose ViewDocument Map. A narrow panel with its
own vertical scroll bar opens down the left side of your document window.
The Document Map doesn’t have a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom; if you can’t
read the full text across the Document Map pane, drag the narrow gray bar—the resize
bar—to widen its pane. Actually, you can read the full text of any topic in the Docu-
Figure 6-12:
When you click a heading
in the Document Map in
the left pane, you
automatically jump to that
point in your document in
the right pane. Theres no
quicker way to get from
one place to another in a
long document. Plus, when
you click the mouse
somewhere in your
document, that topic is
highlighted in the
Document Map.
