Formatting Text

You can change character formatting in any rich text field to make your documents more interesting or attractive, or to emphasize important text. As pictured in Figure 15.3, character formatting includes working with the following characteristics:

  • Font— Apply a typeface to text in the document. For example, you can make a title stand out by applying a different typeface to it. You are limited to the fonts available in your operating system.

  • Size— Apply a size to the text increases or decreases the size of the printed or displayed text. Typically, larger text (say, 24-point size) commands more attention, and smaller text (10-point, for example) is reserved for details.

  • Style— Apply special text formatting—plain, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, subscript, superscript, shadow, emboss, or extrude—to add emphasis and clarity to your document.

  • Color— Apply color to text to further define the text in your document.
