We are working on a document in Word but for some reason we have to close the document and continue editing it later. Okay, No problem. But where was the last part of the document that we were editing? Don’t remember!!!
Word 13 has thought about it.
If we close our document in Microsoft Word 13, the next time we open it at the right of the screen the Resume Reading pane will appear as we can see in the image below.
The Resume Reading welcomes us back and advises us to pick up where we left off.
It mentions the number of the page that we were last working on and even the exact spot. It also notifies us how long ago we were working on the specific document.
In the image below it notifies us that we were working on Page 100, a few seconds ago.
In the image below I had closed the document and re-opened it later. The Resume Reading notifies again that we were working on Page 100, Six (6) minutes ago.
Once more, in the image below I had closed the document and re-opened it later. The Resume Reading notifies again that we were working on Page 100, One (1) hour ago.
We can pick up from where we have left very easily and fast. All we have to do is to click on the Resume Reading pane and we will move to the exact spot straight away.
In the image below we are notified by Resume Reading that we were working on Page 100, Four (4) hours ago.
If we open the document and don’t use the Resume Reading, it shrinks in the form that we can see in the image below and if we navigate on top of it, it shows all the information that I described above.
