Using the Navigation Pane in Word 2010 and later

Navigation Pane in Word 2010 image Document MapMicrosoft revamped its document map as the Navigation Pane in Word 2010. The Navigation view is shown here in a document that uses the built-in heading styles. It combines the map, an expanded search or find feature, and a page display in the one pane.

One way to see the Navigation Pane is to check the box on the View Tab. Another is to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F (find).

The key to using the Navigation Pane to reorganize a document is to use the built-in heading styles to organize it to start with. See Moving/Reorganizing Pages in Microsoft Word.

See also: Outlining in Microsoft Word. The Outline view works in all versions of Word, at least since Word 97.

I had planned on writing a page on using the Navigation Pane because I think it is an underused feature. It appears that a number of other writers have beat me to it. I don't think I can add much. Here, though, is a note about controlling its size and display at startup: Navigation Pane Settings at Word Startup

Here is the Google search for Navigation Pane. Like many searches, it came up with a lot of good material and a bunch of ad sites. Here are some of the best I've found.
