Chapter 6. Enhancing a Document with Word > Adding Desktop Publishing Effects

Adding Desktop Publishing Effects

A few simple elements—drop caps, borders, and shading—make your newsletters and brochures look like a professional produced them. A drop cap is the enlarged first letter of a paragraph. Borders are lines or graphics that appear around a page, paragraph, selected text, or table cells. For borders, you can change the line style, width, and colors, and you can add shadows and 3D effects. Shading is a color that fills the background of selected text, paragraphs, or table cells. For more attractive pages, add clips or columns.
