(1)Draft and Normal, Full Screen Reading and Reading Layout

Classic menu in Word 2010 changes the name of Normal view of Word 2003 with Draft view. There is no functional difference between both except their title.

Similar thing is Full Screen Reading in Word 2010 and Reading Layout in Word 2003. They are the same view method.

 

(2)Show All and Show Paragraph Marks

Classic Menu in Word 2010 deletes the Show Paragraph Marks from the View menu of Word 2003, and takes its place with Show All. Show All in Word 2010 will show paragraph marks and other hidden formatting symbols in current Word document.

 

(3)View Gridlines and Gridlines

There is no functional difference between them. View Gridlines stays in the View menu of Word 2010, while Gridlines is in Word 2003.

 

(4)Selection Pane… and Task Pane

Classic Menu in Word 2010 adds a new item named Selection Pane, which will show the selection Pane to view selected individual objects and to change their order and visibility.

(5)Navigation Pane

Navigation Pane is a new feature in Word 2010. By it we can navigate through the whole document by heading, by page, or by searching for text or objects. It will make our word documents look brief in navigation pane.

By this function, we can view all reviews added in current word document below word document (Vertically) or beside word document (Horizontally).

 

(7)Show Markup

Classic menu in Word 2010 enriches Markup functions. Comparing with the single Markup button in old classic menu of Word 2003, the new one enables us to view various kinds of marks:

  • Comments
  • Ink
  • Insertions and deletions
  • Formatting
  • Balloons, this sub-item includes three options:Show Revisions in Balloons, Show All Revisions Inline, and Show Only Comments and Formatting in Balloons;
  • Reviewers
  • Highlight updates
  • Other Authors

(8)Toolbar

Classic menu in Word 2010 removes the Toolbar item form View drop down menu, because Microsoft Word 2010 does not support the same customization as that we did in old Microsoft Office 2003.

 

(9)Header and Footer

In the View drop down menu of Word 2003, click Header and Footer, then a header and footer toolbar will pop up.
