Adding Pictures and Graphics
INSIDE OUT Make changes to the Normal style
You can quickly change the font and paragraph style for the Normal style—the
template style used for paragraphs to which no other style has been applied—without
digging down to the Modify Style dialog box. Simply open the Font dialog box or
Paragraph dialog box (easiest way: click the dialog box launcher in the Font or Paragraph
group on the Home tab), make your changes, and click Set As Default.
To incorporate the currently selected style set and theme selection into the template, on
the Home tab, click Change Styles, Set As Default For TemplateName Template. Doing so
includes these styles and settings in the template and also uses them as the defaults when
you create a new document based on the template.
Adding Pictures and Graphics
In many cases, a Word document consists of much more than just words. Pictures, clip art,
line drawings, charts, screenshots, and other types of graphics can visually enhance nearly
any document. SmartArt graphics combine text and graphics to produce compelling charts
and presentations.
The techniques for creating, inserting, resizing, rotating, and formatting each of these
graphical object types are the same in Word as they are in other Office programs. We
describe these object types and the techniques for using them in Chapter 6, “Working with
Graphics and Pictures.”
Although the object types are consistent throughout Office, Word offers unique ways to
position such graphics within a document. Word uses one of two basic methods to position
a graphic:
In line with text In-line graphics are treated as part of the document’s text stream.
They maintain their position between the characters or paragraphs where they are
inserted, and they move to the right or down with each character or line you insert
before them.
With text wrapping Word offers several text-wrapping variants, which we explore
next. In each of these variants, a graphic’s horizontal and vertical position is specified
relative to the page, margins, or other landmark. The graphic moves automatically
only if the landmark to which it’s tied moves.
