Any business document should look professional and savvy, before it reaches the client. Whether you create Business Proposals, Reports, Invoices, Quotations or Product Brochures, you must take care about the final presentation layout, look and feel.
Formatting your Word documents correctly can be the first step towards this goal.
Formatting is a vast topic that refers to the Appearance or Presentation of a document.
Most documents have different kinds of Text sections: Headings, Paragraphs, Quotes, Header & Footer, Page Numbers and much more.
Formatting is important in any document to make it more readable, eye catching & Impressive.
Microsoft Word has several Tools for Formatting professionally:
Header & Footers: Commonly used in company letterheads, coursebooks, quotations, business documents. It makes your document more organised, professional & readable.
Page Numbers: It is also helpful to number the pages of your document. You can do this automatically by using the Page number command or by typing directly into a Header or Footer.
