Working with Font Attributes

While formatting numerical values is an important aspect of designing a spreadsheet, another way to emphasize certain entries on a spreadsheet and generally make the spreadsheet more readable is through the use of font attributes. Font attributes include the actual font style (such as Arial or CG Times), the size of the characters, and other character attributes like bold and underline (color is also a font attribute, but it is discussed in the section “Working with Colors, Borders, and Backgrounds”).

You can assign font attributes to cells holding text or values in your spreadsheets. One of the fastest ways to make changes to the font attributes of a cell or a selected range of cells is to use the font tools on the Object toolbar. Figure 3.5 provides a view of these font tools.
