Four View Modes in WPS Writer

Four View Modes in WPS Writer

No matter you are a student, teacher, or business professionals, you can create and edit documents efficiently by WPS Writer as text editors.

We can choose different view modes according to the needs of our daily file reading.

Take this document as an example. I will demonstrate four view modes of text. First, click the View tab.

1.Full Screen

If we only want to display the editing area, click Full Screen or use the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F.

The document will be displayed on full screen, while the ribbon above and the bottom status bar will be hidden. In addition, we can adjust the zoom level of the view in the floating toolbar.

If we want to exit the Full Screen mode, click Quit in the floating window or press Esc.

2.Reading View

Reading View is designed for reading and browsing documents, which is suitable for consulting documents. It can also be activated by using the Ctrl+Alt+R shortcut.

In this mode, you can use Content Navigation which allows you to go to a page or a heading in the document without scrolling, Show Comments, and Highlight are also available.

We can enter the content we want to quickly locate in the Find box.

We can also adjust the Reading Division to set the number of typesetting columns.

Note: In Reading View, documents are not allowed to be edited.

If we want to view a long document conveniently and adjust its structure,  We can click the Outline button; alternatively, we can use the shortcut key Ctrl+Alt+O.

In this mode, we can adjust the title level or move the text paragraph.

After changing the order of the text, you can also update the table of contents by clicking Update TOC.

The Web layout view is to view documents in the form of web pages, and its shortcut key is Ctrl+Alt+W.

This view mode is suitable for sending e-mail and creating web pages.
