Changing the view

In the View tab, go to the Views group and click the Print Layout button, or click the images/IC-022.png tool on the right on the Status Bar.

Draft view

Draft view is used when you want to work on the document’s text only. It displays the document in a very basic layout, and certain elements of the document, such as headers and footers, are not visible. It does not show the real position of the text on the page (for example, a page break is shown as a line of dots).

In the View tab, go to the Views group and click the Draft button.

Read Mode

Read Mode makes documents easier to read on the screen. Word hides the ribbon to maximise the space available to read the text. By default, this view does not display the document as it would be printed (page breaks are not in the same place as real page breaks on printed pages).

In the View tab, go to the Views group and click the Read Mode button, or click the images/IC-021.png tool on the right on the Status Bar.
