Part of the challenge of working with a word processing program that’s as full-featured and powerful as Word is getting to the tools you need quickly. Some tasks are very simple—entering text, running the spelling checker, printing a simple page. Others are more complicated and require an investment of time and effort. Applying a format to a heading, for example, requires you to think about the overall design of your document (or the standards for publication in your department) and to choose the text font, size, style, and spacing settings you want in order to create just the right effect. But to cut down on the time you spend making those choices, Word includes an automated tool called AutoFormat that enables you to apply and change formats quickly in your documents. And if you want to reuse formats from other documents or sections of your work, you can use another feature—Reveal Formatting—to view the formats applied to selected text sections.
