Chapter 6. Formatting in Microsoft Word > Letting AutoFormat Do the Work

Letting AutoFormat Do the Work

AutoFormat is a great feature that sometimes gets a bad rap. AutoFormat can help you by automatically adding bullets to your lists as you type, changing heading styles, numbering steps, changing quotes and dashes, and more. But because AutoFormat is occasionally over-eager, changing what you’d rather not have changed, some people prefer to turn off the feature completely and format things by hand. I think the best way to handle AutoFormat is to teach it to do what you want it to do. You do this by setting the AutoFormat options to your preferences.

AutoFormat is turned on by default when you begin working with Word. To display the AutoFormat dialog box (shown in Figure 6-1), choose AutoFormat from the Format menu.
