Hi all


Firstly let me mention that I have a severe learning disability and am not tech savvy, so please if you intend to respond to this question ensure that it (preferably) includes every minute detail and no technical jargon; every online article regarding this question has no mention of what I am about to ask:


I am using Word 2013 and am wanting to apply the expand/collapse feature to several areas in a existing document, everyone will know that it is easy to apply; but what I find frustrating is that when I collapse the desired text (half a page) I find out that everything from that point onwards gets collapsed.

How would I instruct Word to collapse only a specific portion of text and up to what point? I'm sure the solution is easy, but as I mentioned before this isn't addressed online.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @jacktheripper,


Seems as though you have a challenge on your hands! Without the ability to see the Outline View structure of your master document to know how you have formatted your headings, (or if you have subdocuments linked, a table of contents included, etc.) it’s rather impossible to provide you with explicate directions. The ability to expand/collapse only one specific section of text is based on how you have set up your headings. Have you returned to -> View Tab -> Views group -> Outline -> to make sure that you have your documents headings are set up correctly?


Here are a few Google hits, check them out. I hope that they will guide you successfully.
