Chapter 3. Text Formatting Basics > Applying Font Formatting

Applying Font Formatting

Font formatting is applied to selected characters or, if no characters are selected, to the characters you type at the insertion point after setting formatting options. Here are two examples:

  • To apply a bold font style to text that you have already typed, select the text (Figure 12), then apply the formatting. The appearance of the text changes immediately (Figure 13).

    Figure 12. Select the text that you want to format...

    Figure 13. ...then apply the formatting.

  • To apply a bold font style to text that you have not yet typed, position the insertion point where the text will be typed (Figure 14), apply (or “turn on”) the bold formatting, and type the text. The text appears in bold (Figure 15). You must remember, however, to “turn off” bold formatting before you continue to type (Figure 16).

    Figure 14. Position the insertion point where you want the formatted text to appear...

    Figure 15. ...then “turn on” the formatting and type the text.

    Figure 16. Be sure to “turn off” the formatting before continuing to type.
