Creating the sidebar
When you work in Word 2010 (or
PowerPoint 2010), you have the full
power of Excel 2010 charts (provided
that Excel is installed on your computer).
Insert a chart in Word from the Insert
tab, in the Illustrations group. Charts
are easy to create and use and
automatically coordinate with your active
However, notice in the sidebar at left that
the “thermometer charts” were created
using single-row Word tables. This is
because they automatically fit the tight
space without having to remove any
chart elements. And you might be
surprised to learn that it’s easy to make
them essentially mathematically
To use a table as a thermometer chart,
do the following:
1. On the Insert tab, in the Tables
group, click Table and then drag
across the grid to select the first two
cells in the first row. Click to insert a
two-cell, one-row table.
2. Click in the table and then, on the
Table Tools Layout tab, in the Table
group, click Properties.
3. On the Columns tab of the Table
Properties dialog box, change the
Measure In setting to Percentage.
You can then set the percentage to
up to one decimal point in accuracy.
Setting up multipage
Word is designed to allow text to
automatically flow from one page to the
next. So, when you want an article to
continue on the next page, just keep
In the case of this placeholder article, it is
separated into two placeholder content
controls (one on this page and another
that starts at the top of the following
page) just so that you can still see the
layout of the following page while you
begin adding your own text on this page.
As mentioned on the first page of this
template, remember that it might look
like the layout is skewed when you
replace a long piece of placeholder text
by starting to type your own, but it is not.
As you add your content, the layout that
follows will move down automatically
and back into position.
To remove the second placeholder
control that starts immediately following
this one, just select it and then press any
key. You can then continue typing from
this page and your text will automatically
flow onto the next.
Wrap text around images
The photos in this article that are angled
with white borders are “floating” images.
That is, they are setup for text to wrap
around them—which is why they can
span multiple columns in a three-column
section. Additionally, as mentioned
earlier, the photo of the young woman in
the body of this article is set to wrap text
so that text will flow around the image as
you add your own text.
To select text wrap settings, start by
selecting the image and then do the
1 On the Picture Tools
Format tab, in the
Arrange group, click
Wrap Text and
Tight, or Top
depending on how
you want the text
You might be
happy with the
default behavior as
soon as you do this.
Otherwise, continue to step two for
2 To set a specific position or control
behavior (such as whether or not the
image moves with text), on the
Picture Tools Format tab, in the
Arrange group, click Position and
then click More Layout Options.
Caption 2 style is used to add
picture captions. Captions are
in text boxes for easy
placement relative to images.
