Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

In this course, find out how the Navigation Pane enables you to view all of your document’s headings and pages in a clear, top-to-bottom format; locate and restructure chunks of content just by dragging headings; and find all instances of specific words, phrases, or items such as figures and tables – without having to scroll through the search results.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Get a bird’s-eye view of document pages and headings by using the Navigation Pane, and then go to a specific section or page with one click.

  • Quickly locate, add to, and reorganize content by working with headings in the Navigation Pane.

  • Find all instances of specific text and other items such as tables without having to scroll for them, as well as replace text.
