Okay, so our document is getting there. I am going to head all the way backup to top of our file here, Control Home. And, with the formatting that we have been adding in, our document is starting to look a little bit better. Here is something neat that we can do though. I am going to go my Insert Tab here and I want to go in and add a cover page. And, this once again something that is new to Word 2007. I am going to drop down my cover page pull down here and you can see all of these pre-created preset cover pages that we can use. All I have to do is choose one that I would like to add to my document. I am going to go with Transcend, the very last one here, single click on it and Word adds that to my file. So, I am going to add in some extra content here. It is asking me here for a date so I am going to single click in here and then drop down my menu. I will go with a date here. It is asking me for a document title, "A Web Design Primer" and I will scroll down to the bottom of my cover page and add in my subtitle, "Best Practices in Web Design" and there is how to add a cover page in Word.
Now, the other thing that we can do here is we can add on extra blank pages. The first thing that I am going to do is adjust my zoom here. I am going to go back to 100% and I am going to head all the way down to the bottom of my document, Control End. And, what I am going to do just before inserting my blank page is I am going to hit Enter here and that of course gives me a number five underneath my numbered list. That is going to clear that numbering. I am going to go up to my Home Tab and then click on my Numbering button underneath my paragraph category. That clears my numbering. I am going to go back to my Insert Tab and then click on Blank Page and that adds on a full empty page at the end of my document. I am going to zoom out here so you can see this. There is my blank page.
Okay, I am going to head all the way backup to the top of my document here so Control Home. I will head down to my second page here. Another new function in Word 2007 is something called Themes. What Themes will do is apply formatting to your entire document. If you load your Page Layout Tab, you will see your Themes category here. So, I am going to drop down my Themes pull down menu here and I can go through my different Preset Themes here. You can see the colors in my document are changing. The fonts in my document are changing. I am going to choose Paper here and head back up to my cover page so it made some changes there.
Now, what I can do is rather than just choosing a Preset Theme, I can start to tweak that Theme so I can pull down my colors menu here and begin adjusting just the colors through my Theme. For example, maybe I want Module. Additionally, I can go to Fonts and begin changing the Fonts being used in my Theme, and also effects. And that should have an impact on some of the graphics I inserted earlier. If I am happy with my customized Theme, I can open up the Theme Menu here and choose Save Current Theme. I will name this after myself and save it. Now, I can recall that theme for all my other documents. And, that is working with Themes in Word 2007.
