Editing and Reviewing Tools
Word 2007 provides editing and reviewing tools that help you create professional documents faster than ever before. Live visual previews, predefined style galleries, table formats, and other options are always at your fingertips. To help minimize time wasted re-typing, take advantage of new Building Blocks designed specifically for the addition of frequently used content to your documents. You can even create your own Building Blocks to simplify the addition of custom text, such as legal disclaimer text or other frequently used materials. For that professional touch, select from a predefined gallery of cover pages, pull quotes, headers, and footers.
Word 2007 helps you communicate more effectively with high-impact graphics. New charting and diagramming features that include 3-D shapes, transparency, drop shadows, and other effects help you create professional-looking graphics that result in more effective documents. Quickly apply a new look and feel to your documents using Quick Styles and Document Themes to change the appearance of text, tables, and graphics throughout your entire document to match your preferred style or color scheme.
Share Your Documents and Content Confidently
With Word 2007, you can share documents with colleagues to gather feedback efficiently. You can also help prevent unwanted distribution of your documents and even remove private comments or hidden text prior to publishing. Additionally, the tri-pane review panel makes it easy to compare and combine two versions of a Word document, so you can detect even the smallest differences when dealing with changes from reviewers.
Participate in Office SharePoint Server 2007
To help make users more efficient when working in a managed environment, participate in Office SharePoint Server 2007 workflows without leaving Word. You can start workflows, interact with workflow tasks, or get information about your documents from the new Document Alert Bar. Managed document repositories can also be accessed from within Word 2007, so you have greater control over document versions. For added peace of mind, information management policies consistently enforce the labeling, auditing, and expiration of documents stored in SharePoint Server 2007 managed document repositories. You can also choose to keep track of your documents with the Document Information Panel which can help add workflow and tracking information directly to your documents. And Word 2007 uses a separate file format (.docm) for macro-enabled documents, so you can quickly tell whether a file is capable of executing any embedded macros.
Keep Your Documents Safe and Secure
Word 2007 offers the Document Inspector feature to help you detect and remove unwanted comments, personally identifiable information, hidden text, or other information from documents so that private information stays that way. You can also add digital signatures to help others verify that content has not been changed since it was published. Another option is to add a new signature line to prompt other Word users for their signature, or to provide a visible digital signature within your documents. Additionally, the Reading Mode offers you an immersive, full-screen reading experience that makes online reading easier, reducing the need to print the document. And because quality editing depends on the ease of viewing text, new navigation controls and typography display improvements make the reading experience better than ever.
Convert Your Word Documents
With Word 2007, you can share documents in Portable Document Format file (PDF) and XML Paper Specification (XPS) format without using third-party tools. XML support facilitates smaller, more robust documents and deep integration with information systems and external data sources. Because Office Open XML Formats are compressed, segmented file formats, they offer a dramatic reduction in file size and helps ensure damaged or corrupt files can be easily recovered.
Facilitate Important Business Processes
Word 2007 offers a host of integration points to enable organizations to build powerful solutions that are easy for users to utilize successfully. XML Formats give developers unprecedented access to the contents of your documents, enabling broad interoperability with a wide range of programs and solutions. The Document Information Panel means users enter correct metadata by making it possible for you link document properties to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services or to other external data sources. Content Controls help you structure the document authoring process by requiring specific types of information or by adding sections of documents that may not be edited or reformatted.
Tools For Developers
Custom-defined schema support of the Office XML Formats enables developers to host their own content within Word documents, using their own custom XML vocabularies. Instead of expensive translations, custom XML content is hosted directly within the file. You can also take advantage of Data Bindings and provide developers with an easy way to link the contents of external data sources and custom-defined schemas to their word documents.
Top Customer Reviews
If that were not enough, the new version of office breaks backwards compatibility for a number of standard features when working with documents saved in older formats and with 3rd-party plug-ins. Indexes do not port over nicely between versions, nor do a number of other minor features, while the 3rd-party application Camtasia caused Power Point to crash to desktop repeatedly.
In return for these types of headaches, the new version offers almost nothing new in the way of features or fixes to longstanding bugs and quirks. Essentially we are offered the same word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications spruced up with an unintuitive user interface that may look "gee whiz" during a demo, but quickly fails to impress when it comes to actual usage.
As a professional who heads up a technical publications department for a software firm, I've watched productivity drop dramatically when it comes to using the new office for creating materials. I can only hope that Microsoft in the future spends less time worrying about how snazzy the gradient fill effects are and starts to again to look at the functionality that made its products great in the first place.
