In Word2003, when a user creates a new Word document, there is a flashing vertical bar at the beginning of a blank Word document, which is the insertion point cursor, as shown in Figure 2009110307.

In a blank Word document, the user can position the insertion point cursor by double-clicking the mouse. When the mouse moves through a blank document, it displays a different state, each representing a different text input format, as shown in table 1.
Table 1 different cursor shapes represent different actions
|Cursor shape||Specific operations|
|Text input is formatted as left indent||Text entered in a left-aligned format|
|The text input is formatted with the right alignment||Text input is formatted in the center alignment|
In an edited Word document (not a blank Word document), click the mouse to position the insertion point cursor. You can also use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the insertion point cursor in the document. Table 2 lists the ways to move the insertion point cursor using the keyboard direction key and the edit key.
