Improvements in Word version 5.1
This section lists improvements to Word that are not described in the What's New in Microsoft Word Version 5.1 manual.

Saving hard disk space when installing Word
Word version 5.1 provides two installation options, Minimal and PowerBook, to make it easier to install Word in a configuration that requires a minimal amount of space on your hard disk. The ReadMe Before Installation file lists the files that are installed with these options, as do the comments at the bottom of the Customize dialog box in the Installer program.

Subscribing to an edition and updating a subscriber
You can specify the format you want to use for a subscriber by using the Subscribe With list box in the Subscribe To dialog box. The default format is Best Format, which varies according to the edition format and system considerations, such as the amount of available memory. Other choices include Formatted Text (RTF), Unformatted Text, and Picture.
When you update a subscriber, you can maintain character and paragraph formatting you have applied to the subscriber by selecting the Keep Subscriber Formatting Changes check box in the Subscriber Options dialog box.

Updating a link
When you update a link, you can maintain character and paragraph formatting you have applied to linked text by selecting the Keep Link Formatting Changes check box in the Link Options dialog box. For example, if you apply right alignment formatting to a linked paragraph and then update the link, the paragraph will remain right aligned.
