WD 162 Word Chapter 3 Creating a Cover Letter and a Resume
To Clear Formatting
The next step is to position the insertion point below the letterhead, so that you can type the content of the
letter. When you press the ENTER key at the end of a paragraph containing a border, Word moves the border forward
to the next paragraph. It also retains all current settings. That is, the paragraph text will be teal and will have a
bottom border. Instead, you want the paragraph and characters on the new line to use the Normal style: black font
with no border. In Word, the term, clear formatting , refers to returning the formatting to the Normal style. The
following steps clear formatting at the location of the insertion point.

AutoFormat As You Type
As you type text in a document, Word automatically formats it for you. For example,
when you press the ENTER key or SPACEBAR after typing an e-mail address or Web address,
Word automatically formats the address as a hyperlink, that is, colored blue and underlined.
In Figure 3–23, Word formatted the e-mail address as a hyperlink because you pressed the
ENTER key at the end of the line. Table 3–2 outlines commonly used AutoFormat As You Type
options and their results.
