Applying Shading

You can use shading to display text over a background color, such as black text on a light gray background. Figure 9.2 showed an example of shading. You can apply shading to selected text or to individual paragraphs. Shading is comprised of either a fill color, a pattern color, or a combination of both. Here's how to apply shading:

  1. Select the text to be shaded, or position the cursor anywhere in the paragraph to shade an entire paragraph.

  2. Click Format, Borders and Shading to open the Borders and Shading dialog box. Click the Shading tab (see Figure 9.4).

  3. To use a fill color, select it from the palette in the Fill area of the dialog box. To use only a pattern color, select None.

  4. To use a pattern color, select its style and color from the lists in the Patterns section of the dialog box. To use only a fill color, select the Clear style. You can view the appearance of the selected settings in the Preview area of the dialog box.

  5. If you selected text before opening the dialog box, use the Apply To list to specify whether the fill should apply to the select text or the current paragraph.

  6. Select OK.
