available for a button. For example, the Bullet Library gallery in Word shows an icon of each
bullet style you can select. Some galleries include a More button that you click to
expand the gallery to see all the options it contains. When you point to an option in a
gallery, Live Preview shows the results that would occur in your fi le if you clicked that
option. To continue the bullets example, when you point to a bullet style in the Bullet
Library gallery, the selected text or the paragraph in which the insertion point is located
