Q&A

Q1:How can I change the default font when I start a worksheet?
A1: Before you enter any data, choose a new font in the Font box on the Formatting toolbar.
Q2:When I applied a font to text, why did I get a lot of little pictures?
A2: Some fonts, such as Wingdings, are made up of symbols, not of letters and numbers. Select another font.
Q3:When I changed the size of the font for the title, and added bold to text in Column A, why does the text now spill over into the next column?
A3: Larger font sizes and boldface can increase the width of the characters and can change the length of the text entry in a cell. Therefore, the text spilled over into the next cell. In the column that contains the title, double-click the column border to widen the column. Widen column A by double-clicking on its column border. Excel will automatically widen the column to fit the long entries.
Q4:After I copied some formatting with the Format Painter tool, I didn't like the results in the new location. What can I do to fix it?
A4: Click the Undo button on the Standard toolbar immediately after you finish painting the format.
Q5:When I pressed Enter in a Comment box to close it, why did Excel add a blank line to my comment text and not close the box?
A5: You cannot close a comment by pressing Enter—that just inserts a blank line. Click another cell to close the Comment box.
