Microsoft Word allows you to make many types of editing changes, including splitting a single Word document into two documents. The "Cut" and "Paste" features of Word allow you to move blocks of text within a Word document, between Word documents and between applications. Within Word, you can copy text, images and any formatting in the document into a different location.
