Chapter 3. Formatting in Word > The Formatting Palette

3.1. The Formatting Palette

The Formatting Palette, which is the envy of Windows users the world over, puts Word's most common formatting commands within easy reach (Figure 3-1). It opens when you first open a Word document. If it's been hidden, you can bring it back by choosing View Formatting Palette or clicking the Formatting Palette button on the Standard toolbar. Both methods alternately hide and show the palette.

The options on the Formatting Palette change depending on what you're doing. When you click a photo or drawing, for example, the palette changes to show the tools you need to work with graphics. Most of the time, however, the Formatting Palette displays the commands you most frequently need to work with fonts, paragraph formatting, and other elements of text.
