HOW TO CHANGE SETTINGS default document in Word ...

In the introduction, I want to share some useful observations, which also inspired the theme of this article.

Each update Windows 10 Insider Preview resets the counter of Microsoft Office 2016. Typically the trial period, the early build "tens" go more than once a month and 30 days trial period simply did not have time to finish.

With the help of this feature, I fully use the latest versions of Word, Excel and others like them are absolutely free and absolutely legal for the past seven months. The only disadvantage - reset settings to be reset. But it seems to me, a small price. Use of health until the shop is not covered.

Office theme

In Word 2016, there are three themes. White theme can be called imperishable classics of all generations of the office suite. New Topic "Different colors" helps navigate among several concurrently running applications. Dark gray theme enhances the contrast of the individual elements of the interface, which can be useful for people with impaired vision or tired eyes.

As a rule, we are working on the computer at different times of day and in different light sources: natural, artificial and mixed. Try dark gray theme in the usual situation for themselves: perhaps your eyes will become easier.

Offhand remind ourselves of the most common application scenarios AutoCorrect:

  1. Reducing complex and long terms, names of organizations, with the initials of the names and positions. For example, some "systems engineer information security sector Implementation Department" and asking for autocorrect, so as not to suffer with writing applications.
  2. Correcting common misprints and errors associated with individual printing features of the text and the gaps in knowledge of the Russian language, as well as the exclusion of dual spelling. So, Word takes the word "mattress" and the word "mattress". AutoCorrect will eliminate one of the options at your discretion.
  3. Simplification of special characters and mathematical symbols. The most obvious example - it fixed a small circle of upper-case search, when it comes to degrees Celsius.

Benefits AutoCorrect mathematical symbols is especially obvious if to remember the basic commands and allow their use outside the areas of the formulas.

The setting is in the tab "Spelling» Word settings.

The requirement "e" letters

Among Russian speakers regularly disputes concerning some of its provisions. So, there is a misunderstanding about Anglicisms, "e" right kind of determination of individual nouns and proper case. As explained by "" writing letters "e" only in some cases necessary, but mostly - optional, that is a matter of taste. I love this letter, let it difficult to reach on the keyboard and easy to miss in a hurry. To avoid this and your text has always adhered to the general rule, set the strict requirement "e" in the tab "Spelling» Word settings.


Suppose you are typing at an average speed of about 300 characters per minute. This is a few lines of text that you remember well, and can be repeated easily. For 10 minutes, you have time to put on paper a decent amount of material in 3000 symbols, details of which are not so easy to restore. And it is every 10 minutes Word automatically saves your work.

During this time, it may happen byaka different: for example, the battery dies, "jump" electricity, there will be a hardware failure or flash drive will be thrown out of the nest. Set small interval autosave to protect themselves from trouble. A couple of minutes will be enough. And do not worry that the Word during preservation will be sensitive Freeze: those days are long gone. And do not forget to enable the preservation of the last avtosohranonnoy version when you close without saving!

font Embedding

Of course, Word is not the best program for creating graphical models, but its patterns are not so rarely used for the preparation of cards, letters and posters. In this case, apply specific decorative fonts that emphasize overall style of the document. One problem: these fonts are hardly established in those to whom they are addressed, and Word will replace them for similar when you open a document that can completely kill all vorstku. To avoid this, allow font embedding a file, if you have to deal with such decorations. The setting is in the tab "Saving» Word settings.

The values ​​of the new document

It is difficult to say what attracted Microsoft Calibri, 11 pt, but this small font size is assigned by default for all new documents text editor. Straight slip, from which some Word users may suffer several times a day. In this case, it is easy to fix in the font settings (Ctrl + D): Select the appropriate values ​​and click "Default" in the lower left corner of the window to confirm your decision, assign parameters for all future Normal template document.

In the same way one can adjust the values ​​of the paragraph, line spacing, or e.g. first line indentation.

Automatic switching layouts

How many times have you opened the Word document and inadvertently starts typing in a different language? Lot. And in some cases you will have time to collect a fair amount of text before a misunderstanding floated out. Setting the "Automatically switch keyboard layout according to the language of the surrounding text" excludes such failures.

Put down box to the layout is automatically switched to the Cyrillic alphabet for each new document (requires Russian localization office suite). In that case, if you are working in an already existing file, the language corresponds to the language of this paragraph, whether Russian, English or any other foreign language. An additional advantage of this setting - load reduction and abrasion keys Ctrl and Alt. 🙂
