Sketch out the layout for your document on paper. Determine if the document orientation will be portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal).

Determine if you will use any images or clip art. Know Your File Types Party! Party! It is important to know what version of the software you are using to save your documents. When you create a document, it stores an extension in the file name that identifies the type of software used to create the document. Quick Tip: 1 Decide what you want to accomplish with your document Identify with your audience Compatability Cautions Along with the new features of Microsoft Word 2007 come several challenges when opening documents created in previous versions of the application.

On the flip side, when you open Word documents in Word 2007, the document opens in Compatibility Mode and the 2007 features are grayed out and not available. It is strongly recommended that you perform the following functions to maintain the integrity of your documents when upgrading to Word Save all new documents in Word Save a copy of any documents that are being shared down to Word Convert your existing documents to Word 2007 Identify the layout and design, file, format, and storage location.
