You may already know this, but I just discovered there are several templates in Office 07 (and they can be converted to Office 97-03) for outlines. Many students seem to have difficulty with outlining or getting started with an outline, so you might want to take a peek!
1. Open Word 2007.
2. Click on the big button in the upper left hand corner and choose “new.”
3. The new document box will come up. Look on the left menu and go all the way to the bottom to choose “More categories.”
4. Now you will have a menu of choices, and you can select “Outlines” to view the outline templates.
