Word 2007 Show Hide
This section in the View tab is Word 2007 Show/Hide. This section uses check boxes to select these view options. You are able to select multiple choices in this section. The first option is Ruler. If this box is checked you will notice a ruler at the top and along the left edge of your document. This can be helpful to let you know how far down or across the page you are. It can also help with centering and aligning objects on the page.
The Gridlines option if checked will make your page look like a piece of graph paper.
Message Bar will open the message bar if someone has created tasks for you to complete by using the Review tab. This option will be grayed out if there are no tasks on the document.

Thumbnails are similar to Document Map. They are small pictures of each page of your document. Thumbnails also opens a pane in the left margin with a small graphic of each page in your document.
