View A Word Document in Two Different Views

Posted on Updated on

In Word, we can split the window into two panes, in order for us to view different parts of a document at the same time. This is quite handy if we want to copy and paste document from one part to another quickly. In order for us to split a Word Document into two panes, all we have to do is to follow the steps below.

At the bottom left corner of the Word Window as shown in the image below, we can see how many pages our document contains.

Pages 6 of 6

First, we must select the View tab and then locate the area of the ribbon named Window as shown in the image below, and then select the Split command.

Straight away, the Word Window is separated in two different sections as shown in the image below. Each section of the Word Window is individual. All we have to do is to click on the section that we want to edit and use the commands on the ribbon. As mentioned, each section is individual, and in the image below, I have change the Zoom Level of the bottom section in order to fit two pages of the document on that section.

If we want to increase or decrease the section of the separated window, all we have to do is to click and hold the Split Divider and drag it up or down depending on what we want to do.

Once we have finished what we wanted to do and we want to remove the split, we must select the View tab and from the area of the ribbon named Window we notice that the Split command has changed to Remove Split as shown in the image below. All we have to do is to select the Remove Split command and our window is back to normal.

As mentioned the two sections are individual, so in the image below the top section is in Print Layout View and the second section in Outline View.
