Using QuickFormat

WordPerfect’s QuickFormat feature enables you to create a temporary style that you can then apply to other parts of the document. It’s perfect for those situations in which you need to do some repetitive formatting, but you don’t really need to create a style.

1.
Begin by applying the formatting you want to a section of text. This is the formatting that will be copied to other sections of the document.

2.
Position the insertion point anywhere in the formatted text.

3.
Choose Format, QuickFormat, or click the QuickFormat button on the toolbar. WordPerfect displays the QuickFormat dialog box (see Figure 9.8).

Figure 9.8. The QuickFormat dialog box enables you to capture a formatting style and apply it to selected text or heading paragraphs.


4.
Click Headings or Selected Characters, depending on how you want to use the style.

5.
Click OK. A new mouse pointer appears; this one is shaped like a paint roller (see Figure 9.9).

Figure 9.9. The mouse pointer changes to indicate that you will apply a heading style when you click the mouse.


6.
If you selected Headings, click the paragraph that you want to format; otherwise, click and drag the mouse pointer across the text that you want to format.

7.
Continue through the document, clicking each heading or selecting sections of text to apply the QuickFormat style.

8.
To turn off QuickFormat, choose Format, QuickFormat; or click the QuickFormat button on the toolbar.
