Add visual effects to your text.
With Word 2010 you can apply formatting effects such as shadow bevel glow and reflection to your document text as easily as applying bold or underline. You can spell-check text that uses visual effects and add text effects to paragraph styles. Many of the same effects used for images are now available to both text and shapes enabling you to seamlessly coordinate all of your content.
Discover an improved search and navigation experience.
Locating the information you need is faster and easier in Word 2010. With the new and improved Find experience you can now view a summary of search results in a single pane and click to access any individual result. The improved Navigation Pane provides you a visual outline of your document so you can browse sort and find what you need quickly.
Recover work you thought was lost.
After working on that document for awhile did you accidentally close it without saving? No problem. Word 2010 lets you recover draft versions of recently edited files as easily as opening any file even if you never saved the document.
