Applying Font Formatting

To make any changes to Word's default format setting, you use one of the font-formatting features. Keep these three points in mind:

  • Typically, you need to select the text you want to format before issuing the formatting command.

    If you haven't yet typed the text that you want to format, you can place your insertion point at the location where you want to type, turn on the formatting options, and then type your text. The text takes on the formatting you chose.


  • The easiest way to tell what font, font size, font style (boldface, italic, underline), and font color has been applied to a block of text is to click in it. The options in the Formatting toolbar show you the formatting in effect wherever the insertion point is resting.

  • If you want to apply the same font formatting to several blocks of text, a fast way to do it is to use the F4 key. F4, the repeat key, repeats whatever command you last issued. To increase the font size of several headings, for example, you could apply the new font size to the first heading, and then select the next heading, press F4, select the next heading, press F4, and so on.
