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 choosing the formatting you want to apply to another section of text—either a heading or any contiguous characters. The formatting you choose at this point 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 headings.


4.
Click Headings or Selected Characters, depending on whether you want to apply the style to a heading you've created (or text that you wish to use as a heading) or to any other text that you select.

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 chose Headings, click anywhere in the paragraph that you want to format; the formatting will be applied to the entire paragraph. If you chose Selected characters, click and drag the mouse pointer across the text that you want to format; the formatting will be applied to the selected text.

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.
