that affect only the text in that block. Or you can copy, move, or delete the block of text.
A block of text in Word includes all letters and characters and the text formatting.
Graphics and other nontext elements can also be selected as a block. In fact, you can select
graphics along with text in the same block.
When the status bar is displaying a word count, the number of words selected in the block of
text is displayed, next to the total number of words in the document. (Refer to Figure 6-1 .)
When the Find command locates text, the text is selected as a block. Refer to Chapter 5 for
