Lesson 16. Applying Automatic Formatting > Applying Formatting as You Type

Applying Formatting as You Type

Word can apply a variety of formatting to text as you type it. Some examples are:

  • Tables If you type a line of plus signs and hyphens (such as +— +— +), and then press Enter, Word creates a table with one column for each pair of plus signs. The table will initially have one row, and the cursor will be positioned in the first cell.

  • Borders If you type three or more hyphens, underscores, or equal signs, Word will insert a thin, thick, or double border, respectively.

  • Bulleted Lists If you start a paragraph with an asterisk, a lower case "o", or a hyphen, and then type a space or tab, Word automatically creates a bulleted list.
