Formatting All or Part of a Document Automatically

If you feel intimidated by all of Word's formatting options, you can leave your document's destiny in the hands of Word's occasionally useful, but frequently awful, batch AutoFormat capability.

When you run it, AutoFormat scans your document, identifies the “AutoFormat As You Type” kinds of changes—changing straight quotes to curly ones, creating headings, AutoNumbering and AutoBulleting lists, and the like—and adds some general formatting changes (changing paragraphs that use the Normal paragraph style to Body Text, for instance). You can simply let the process happen, or you can tell Word you want to review each suggested change and decide whether to apply it or ignore it.
