What Is The Line Focus Feature available in Microsoft Word?

Posted on

In a previous post of mine I had mentioned about the Learning Tools that are available in Microsoft Word 365 and you can find here. Microsoft has built the Learning Tools that will help all the users develop and enhance the following abilities:

  • Decoding: it is the ability to pronounce words the right way.
  • Fluency: it is the ability to read quickly and accurately.
  • Comprehension: it is the ability to understand what we read.

The new feature available in Learning Tools is the Line Focus command. What does it do? It removes distractions so we can move through a Document Line by Line. We can adjust the Focus to put One, Three or Five Lines in View at a time. All you need to do is to continue reading the post below to find out how the Line Focus command works.
