I'm a big fan of Excel's ability to freeze rows and columns.
If I'm looking at a large set of data, I can keep some of the rows and columns fixed and scroll though the rest. After all, this is pretty much useless:
…while this gives me the context I need to make sense of the data:
Now what if I have a similar situation in Word? Say that I have a figure on page one and need to write about it on page three. Do I need to scroll up and down over and over? No. Do I need to copy and paste the figure into another document and do a little split screen dance? No. I just "freeze" the part of the document with the figure.
Here's a document with a figure near the top of page one:
Click on the View Tab, click Split, and put the "splitter" under wherever you want to freeze (Video).
Now you've got much of the same goodness that you have in Excel. You can keep the figure at the top of your screen, and scroll to wherever else you want in the bottom pane. You can change the zoom setting for each pane independently (as I did in the picture above) to give yourself more room to work. Or you can go so far as to vary the views and set one to print view and the other to web view (my personal favorite view in Word). Double click on the splitter when you are done to get rid of it.
Advanced Tip: You can quickly access the splitter by clicking and dragging the little horizontal line above your vertical scroll bar.
But now, you may be thinking "This is great, but is there a way to do this that doesn't take up as much vertical screen real-estate?" Yes. If you go back to the View tab and click the New Window button, you can open a mirror copy of your document, and do all sorts of fun stuff. For example, you could resize the windows like this:
…and do a little multi-monitor emulation. Your edits will be mirrored in each window automatically, but you can manipulate their views independently. That is, the window one on the left could be at the top of the document in outline view zoomed at 100%, while the one on the right could be scrolled to your figure on page 235 in web view and zoomed to 200%. When you are done, just close either of the windows and you are back to one.
Hope this helps.
There seems to be a easier way to freeze MS Word : You install an automatic update for Microsoft Office Word 2007 on a Windows Vista-based computer. Additionally, the computer must be restarted after the automatic update is installed. However, if Word 2007 is running when you restart the computer, you may experience the following symptoms: The mouse does not work when you use Word 2007.
You cannot open a Word document from the Search window in Windows Vista.
You cannot open a Word document from Windows Desktop Search.
Word crashes when you try to start or to exit Word.
Word stops responding when you open the Open dialog box. Word stops responding when you save a document. Word stops responding when you close a document. Just incase you think this is hoax,
This works in Word, as you show. However, it doesn't work properly in Excel. Try it for a pair of spreadsheets, and it does not display them side-by-side. Instead, it stacks them vertically. There is a work-around: use the "Arrange all" command, and then you have control over whether windows are displayed horizontally, vertically, etc. Will this Excel bug be fixed in Windows 2007 SP2?
How about in the next version of Office Excel the ability be added to freeze footer rows and right-hand columns. I often find myself using a spreadsheet that has no data past a certain row and the last row(s) are summary rows. It would be great to be able to freeze my header and footer rows along with the left-hand side column. Sometimes I even have statistics or summary calculations on the far right-hand side too. I'd like to be able to freeze these as well. With this addition, large pieces of data (tables) could easily be updated and the affects be seen immediately in the averages / totals row at the bottom of a huge table. Thanks!
re: GiveMeMyMoneyBack – This is definitely a painful problem when it happens. For what it's worth, we feel your pain, and we will be releasing another KB in the coming months that provides an automated fix for this issue. -Jonathan Bailor (MS)
I don't know if this is the right place for this question. If not, please forward to whoever might help. I'm having a problem with the equations editor in word 2007. Whenever I have equations and pictures in the same page the equations won't print. Pictures print ok but instead of the equations I get a straight line. I know many other users have faced the same issue but so far no one have found a solution. Thanks
