Understanding Word's Multiple Levels of Formatting

If you've ever wondered why Word formatting behaved in a certain way, it will help to know how Word "thinks" about formatting. Word has three levels of formatting, all of which work together:

  • Font formatting applies to specific characters. The Format, Font dialog box (also accessible by pressing Ctrl+D) brings together many of Word's font formatting controls.

  • Paragraph formatting applies to entire paragraphs. The Format, Paragraph dialog box brings together many of Word's paragraph formatting controls.

  • Section formatting applies to entire sections of a document. Word allows you to divide a document into sections corresponding to its major components, such as chapters in a manual, and establish margins, headers/footers, and other section formatting individually for each section. Section formatting controls can be found in the File, Page Setup dialog box and a few other locations.
