Part: II Formatting Documents > Formatting Characters

Hour 6. Formatting Characters

Changing the appearance of characters is one of the parts of word processing that most people enjoy—even stodgy workaholics and high-octane business managers. The formatting that you can apply to individual characters—fonts, font sizes, bold, italic, underline, and so on—is referred to as font formatting or character formatting. You can apply font formatting to as little as one character, or as much as an entire document. In this hour, you learn how to apply a wide range of font-formatting techniques, and then you find out about a few more tricks for handling this type of formatting in your documents.

The highlights of this hour include

  • Using other fonts and changing the font size

  • Applying boldface, italic, and underline

  • Changing font color

  • Adjusting character spacing

  • Applying text effects

  • Choosing a different default font

  • Copying and removing font formatting
