Chapter 2. Quick and Effective Formattin... > Understanding Direct Formatting

Understanding Direct Formatting

The techniques you learn in this chapter are often called direct formatting because they involve applying formatting directly to text in your document. Even if you've been using Word for some time, this chapter will present many direct formatting techniques and shortcuts you might not be familiar with.

Later, in Chapter 6, "Streamlining Your Formatting with Styles," you'll learn indirect formatting techniques based on styles (page 230). In indirect formatting, you create a style that includes specific formats. Whenever you want a block of text to use those formats, you apply the style, and Word, in turn, applies the formats.
