Applying Shading

You can use shading to display text over a background color, such as black text on a light gray background. ( Figure 10.2 shows an example of shading.) You can apply shading to selected text or to individual paragraphs. Shading is comprised of either a fill color, a pattern color, or a combination of both. Use the following steps to apply shading:

  1. Select the text to be shaded, or, to shade an entire paragraph, position the cursor anywhere in the paragraph.

  2. Click Format, Borders and Shading to open the Borders and Shading dialog box. Click the Shading tab (see Figure 10.4).

  3. To use a fill color, select it from the palette in the Fill area of the dialog box. To use only a pattern color, select No Fill.

  4. To use a pattern color, select its style and color from the lists in the Patterns section of the dialog box. To use only a fill color, select the Clear style. You can view the appearance of the selected settings in the Preview area of the dialog box.

  5. If you selected text before opening the dialog box, use the Apply To list to specify whether the fill will apply to the selected text or to the current paragraph.

  6. Select OK.
