To Use the Mini Toolbar to Format Text
Recall from the Ofi ce 2010 and Windows 7 chapter at the beginning of this topic that the Mini toolbar, which
automatically appears based on certain tasks you perform, contains commands related to changing the appearance of
text in a document. All commands on the Mini toolbar also exist on the Ribbon.
When the Mini toolbar appears, it initially is transparent. If you do not use the transparent Mini toolbar, it
disappears from the screen. The following steps use the Mini toolbar to change the color and font size of text in the
signature line of the l yer.
1
Move the mouse pointer to the left
of the line to be selected (in this
case, the signature line) until the
mouse pointer changes to a right-
pointing block arrow and then click
the mouse to select the line
(Figure 1– 35).
