Lesson 16. Applying Automatic Formatting > What AutoFormatting Can Do

What AutoFormatting Can Do

Automatic formatting is Word's capability to analyze the parts of a document and recognize certain elements, such as body text, headings, bulleted lists, and quotations. Word will then apply appropriate styles to the various text elements to create an attractively formatted document. (You learned about styles in Lesson 12 and 13.) You can accept or reject the automatically applied format, in part or in whole, and can later make any desired modifications to the document.

In addition to applying styles, automatic formatting removes extra "returns" between paragraphs; automatically formats Internet, network, and e-mail addresses as hyperlinks; applies bold or underline character formatting to text surrounded by asterisks (⋆) or underscores (_); replaces two hyphens (—) with an em dash (—) and more.
