Words Quick Click and Type

    June 23, 2003

Word’s Click and Type feature (available only in Print Layout and Web views) allows you to quickly insert text, graphics, tables, or other items in most* blank areas of a page simply by positioning the pointer and double clicking. The pointer icon (examples shown below) indicates the alignment format that will be used for the new text.

For example, if you wanted to create a quick title page for a report, you could point to the middle of a blank line and double click. When pointing to the middle of a blank line, the mouse pointer shows the Center Align Paragraph icon, so double clicking will place the cursor in the middle of the line, and the paragraph alignment will be set to centered.

*IMPORTANT: Click and Type is not available when working with multiple columns, using bulleted or numbered lists, or when you are working next to floating objects, to the left or right of pictures with top and bottom text wrapping, or to the left or right of indents.
