Imagine you have footnotes at the bottom of a long MS Word page that would not fit into a single screen. How would you work in the first paragraph of that page while viewing the footnotes at the same time?
Or, in general: how would you view separate parts of your document at the same time?
MS Word 2010 offers a very useful solution to that: SPLIT button.
Here is how you do it:
1) Open your long file by selecting File > Open and browsing to the file.
2) Select the View tab.
3) Click the SPLIT button and then move the split bar up and down to where you want on the screen:
4) Click your cursor in the BOTTOM screen and scroll to where you want in the file. Now you can view and edit both ends of your document:
5) When you’re done, click the SPLIT button once again to remove the split bar and revert to the single-page look.
