Formatting the Worksheet
What is the effect of clicking the Decrease Font Size button?
When you click the Decrease Font Size button, Excel assigns the next lowest font size in the Font
Size gallery to the selected range. The Increase Font Size button works in a similar manner but
causes Excel to assign the next highest font size in the Font Size gallery to the selected range.
Color Selection
Knowing how people
perceive colors helps you
emphasize parts of your
worksheet. Warmer colors
(red and orange) tend to
reach toward the reader.
Cooler colors (blue, green,
and violet) tend to pull
away from the reader.
Bright colors jump out of a
dark background and are
easiest to see. White or
yellow text on a dark blue,
green, purple, or black
background is ideal.
