Basic Text Formatting
Word stores some of the most common text-formatting commands on the Home tab, in the Font
group, as shown in Figure 10-1 . The command buttons in this group carry out most of the basic text
formatting you use in Word. This section mulls over the possibilities.
Text can also be formatted by using the Mini toolbar, which appears whenever you select text.
Refer to Chapter 6 .
The Font group can help you quickly determine which type of formatting is applied
to your text. For example, in Figure 10-1 , the text where the insertion pointer is blinking is
formatted in the Calibri font. The number 11 tells you that the text is 11 points tall. If the B
button were highlighted, you would also know that the text was formatted in bold. (These text
formats are discussed throughout this section.)
