Q&A

Q1:What is the difference between a serif and a sans serif font, and which type should I use where?
A1: A serif font has “tails” at the ends of the letters. A good example of serif font is Times New Roman. Serif fonts are ideal for body text. A sans serif font is one that doesn't have the tails. Arial and Helvetica are examples of sans serif fonts. These fonts work well for headings and short blocks of text.
Q2:When I click the down arrow to the right of the Font drop-down list on the Formatting toolbar, it takes forever for the list to appear. Is there any way to speed it up?
A2: Yes. The Font drop-down list will display much more quickly if the font names aren't listed in the actual fonts. To turn this feature off, choose Tools, Customize. In the Customize dialog box, click the Options tab. Clear the List Font Names in Their Font check box, and click OK. This change affects the Font drop-down list in all Office applications.
Q3:I tried to change a font format for some text in my document and nothing happened. What did I do wrong?
A3: You probably forgot to select the text first.
