Five views (Print Layout, Read Mode, Web Layout, Outline and Draft) and how to switch in Word
MS Word has five views, namely: Print Layout, Read Mode, Web Layout, Outline, and Draft. The features of each view are different; what we see when editing documents is Print Layout; Read Mode is dedicated to reading and cannot be used to edit; Web Layout is a view like editing a web page and can be used to edit; Outline is similar to Web Layout and can be used to edit, except that a small gray circle is added to the front of each line; Draft is also similar to Web Layout, , but the width is limited, the text can only be arranged within the width of document, unlike the Web Layout that can be displayed on the entire screen.
Among the five views of Word, some of them can be switched between each other and some are not. Some of the switching marks are obvious and some are not obvious. Therefore, it is necessary to know how to switch between them. Otherwise, after entering a certain view, you want to edit the document, don't know how to return to the Print Layout.
