Advanced Text Formatting Techniques

Microsoft Word offers a number of formatting techniques that go beyond the basics discussed in Chapter 3:

  • Reveal Formatting enables you to get information about the formatting applied to selected text.

  • Format Painter enables you to copy font and paragraph formats from one selection to another.

  • Styles enables you to define and apply named sets of formatting options for individual characters or paragraphs.

  • Themes and the Style Gallery enable you to apply predefined sets of styles to a document.

  • AutoFormat instructs Word to automatically format text you type.

This chapter covers these advanced formatting techniques and shows you how they can help you format your documents more quickly, effectively, or consistently.

✓ Tip

  • It’s a good idea to have a solid understanding of the concepts covered in Chapter 3 before you read this chapter.
