Initial Start Up
Open up a Word document and save it to your student H-Drive as ‘Information Systems
Assignment One’. Ensure that you routinely save your work as you update the document.
Create file names that are easy to understand and allow you to tell which one is the latest
draft. Most importantly, save your latest updates multiple times (i.e. one copy on your
student h-drive, one copy on a portable hard drive and one copy on your home PC or
personal laptop). Never save your work on the desktop of hard drives of university
computers as these are deleted each time you log off.

Inserting a Cover Page
Inserting a preformatted cover page into the first page of your document is surprisingly easy
and can actually be quite a fun process. It is a chance for you to add some style into your
document and also allows you to set your document’s theme (so that it aligns with the overall
content within). In terms of your first assignment (the website plan for the course Information
Systems for Service Industries), inserting a cover page can additionally allow you to
reinforce the look and feel of your business / website idea (think about inserting a title page
that somehow includes your website’s banner logo as the background image). Take some
time to scroll through and trial a number of the preformatted cover pages Word has to offer
before you make a decision on which cover page you will eventually use (but also remember
that it can be altered at any time throughout the writing process). To insert a cover page,
follow the following steps:
1. Place your curser where you want the cover page to be placed in your document (the
first page).
2. Click on the tab called ‘Insert’.
3. On the far left of the Word toolbar you will now see a tab titled, ‘Cover Page’. Click
on the little down arrow (Figure 1).
4. Choose whatever cover page style you wish to use (Figure 1).
5. Word will insert that specific cover page template into your document for you.
6. Now you can type in your title, abstract information, author information, dates, years,
and anything else you wish to place on your cover page.
7. Note: You can edit text styles (fonts, font size, font colour, alignment etc) or remove
specific sections of these cover pages if you wish. It is quite easy so play around
with the cover page until you are happy with it.

Inserting a Cover Page with Background Image
Now if you want to add a background image to your cover page in order to add some style or
underlying theme into your document follow the following steps:
1. Once you have inserted your cover page, place your curser at the top of your cover
page (away from any cover page text boxes).
2. Once again click on the tab called ‘Insert’.
3. On the left of the Word toolbar (5 tabs over from the left) you will now see a tab titled,
‘Picture’. Click on the ‘Picture’ tab (Figure 2).
4. Word will bring up a browser window allowing you to choose an image stored on your
computer. You can browse around your computer drives to locate your image. Click
on the image of your choice and then click ‘insert’ (Figure 2).
5. Word will insert the image into your document however it will most likely insert it onto
the second page and not on your title page where you originally placed your curser
(which is where you actually want it). This is because the image has been inserted
with a default ‘text wrapping’ setting called ‘in line with text’. Don’t stress.
6. Let’s fix it. Click on the actual image you just inserted.
7. A formatting tool bar should automatically pop up for you but if it does not, just click
on the ‘Format’ tab (Figure 3).
8. There are a lot of options here for image formatting however let’s stick to the issue at
hand (that we want the image we just inserted to become the background image
behind our cover page template). Over towards the right of the formatting tab is a tab
called, ‘text wrapping’ (Figure 3). Click on the little down arrow that is part of that tab.
9. Now choose ‘Behind Text’ (Figure 3).

10. Your image should automatically shift to the cover page and sit behind any of the
cover page text boxes and options. Sorted.

Editing Cover Page Image Size
Image size will most likely now be your biggest issue. You want it to fit perfectly on the
cover page. Here are some tips. An image that is 15.92cm wide and 24.62cm high will fit
perfectly within the default margins (2.54cm) of an A4 page however you may wish to set the
image to take up the whole A4 page. If this is the case, an image that is 21,09cm wide and
29.74cm high will completely fill one A4 page. It is easy to edit image size within Word. To
do so, follow the following steps:
1. Right click on the image.
2. Click on the ‘Size’ tab associated with the little mini menu that pops up.
3. Make sure the options titled, ‘Lock aspect ratio’ and ‘Relative to original picture size’
are unchecked (Figure 4).
4. Enter your new image sizing details (height and width) in the areas provided under
the title, ‘Size and Rotate’ (Figure 4).
5. Click ‘Close’.

Figure 4. Editing image size in word.
It is better to edit the image to how you want it to look before inserting it into Word as Word
has limited image editing functions. If you wish to alter the look and feel of the image itself
(i.e. colours, contrast, cropping etc), you can but we will cover image editing at a later date
and we will not use Word for this.

Using Headings
Setting up and using headings within your Word document makes life easier. Simple as
that. It will assist you when you want to create a Table of Contents, it will assist you to keep
the formatting or spacing between headings and text the same, and it will assist you when
you wish to change the style or sizing of your headings for any reason (as you only have to
7

do it once rather than do this for each heading in your document, which could be lots). It is
seriously easy to do. Just follow these steps:
1. Type in some headings (type in the first three headings of your assignment).
2. Ensure you are on the ‘Home’ tab tool bar (it is the tab on the far left of your Word
tool bar (Figure 5). You probably will be but check anyway.
3. Once you are on the Home tab, have a look over to the right. Pretty much three
quarters of the tool bar is taken up by different heading tabs (Figure 5).
4. Place your curser over one of your headings and click on it so the curser stays there.
5. Now click on the tab titled, ‘Heading 1’. Watch the style and sizing of the text
automatically change.
6. Now try the other two headings but this time, pick a different heading tab for each
(i.e. on the second heading, pick the ‘Heading 2’ tab, for the last heading you had,
pick the ‘Heading 3’ tab.

Figure 5. Inserting and using different headings.

Editing Headings
1. Now these headings have automatic defaults and you will most likely want to change
this so your headings match the text style you are using throughout your document
and also align with the colour you are suing throughout your documents. Again this
is fairly simple and to do it, just follow these steps:
2. You do not have to worry about the headings in your document.
3. Right click on the heading tab that is associated with the heading you wish to change
the style and sizing for, like Heading 1 for example (Figure 6).
4. Click on ‘Modify’ (it is the tab that is second down from the top of the little mini menu
that pops up.
8

5. You now have access to a text editing tool bar that is the same as what you would
use if you wished to alter text formatting anywhere within your document (Figure 6).
6. Change the text style, text size, text colour as you wish. Click OK.
7. You can also change the spacing that occurs between the heading and the
paragraph text that follows it by using the ‘Format’ tab situated within the same mini
menu. Try it out.

Figure 6. Editing heading style, sizing, colours and spacing.

Using a Table of Contents
Inserting a table of contents is easy if you have already set up your heading styles and used
them to create the outline of your document. You can insert a table of contents early on in
the writing process or once you have finished (it does not really matter) however it might be
a good way to learn how to continually update your table of contents if you insert it earlier
rather than later. So lets do it now. You do not need any other text apart from your basic
headings to insert your table of contents. To insert a table of contents, follow the following
steps:
1. Place your curser where you want the table of contents to be placed in your
document. Normally this is after you title page (i.e. page 2).
2. Click on the tab called ‘References’ (Figure 7)
3. On the far left of the Word toolbar you will now see a tab titled, ‘Table of Contents’.
Click on the little down arrow (Figure 7).
4. Choose whatever table of contents style you wish to use (Figure 7).
5. Word will automatically create a table of contents for you (with page numbers) and
insert it into your Word document where you had the curser placed. Done. Simple.

Figure 7. Inserting a Table Of Contents.

Updating a Table of Contents
As you work on your document and generate more text, the table of contents page numbers
become incorrect. They no longer match your document. No drama. It is easy to update
your table of contents. Do the following:
1. Move your curser over the table of contents (the whole thing will be automatically
highlighted in blue).
2. Click on the table of contents (anywhere).
3. At the top left of the table of contents you will see a tab. Click on ‘Update Table’
(Figure 8).
4. Your table of contents has been updated (including any changes to headings or page
numbers).
10


Figure 8. Updating Table Of Contents.

Changing the Font in your Table of Contents
For some reason, the font in the Table of Contents always reverts to its default setting when
you click on ‘update table’. Now ultimately you want the font style and size in your table of
contents exactly the same as the rest of your document so you have to manually change it. I
normally wait until I am finished with the document before doing this (i.e. it is the last thing I
do before I save the final, completed version of my document). To change the text
formatting in your table of contents, follow these steps:
1. Click on the table of contents.
2. Manually highlight all the text in your table of contents.
3. Right click on this highlighting.
4. Use the text formatting tabs to alter the size and style of your table of contents text to
match the rest of your paragraph formatting.
I will continue to add to this document as you progress through the course and need more
information on Word document functions guys.
