Changing the Font and Font Size
Andrew typed the document in the default font size, 11 point, and the default font,
Calibri, but he would like to switch to the Times New Roman font instead. Also, he wants
to increase the size of all four lines of the document text, with the fi rst line appearing in
the largest font. To apply these changes, you start by selecting the text you want to
format. Then you select the options you want in the Font group on the Home tab.
To change the font and font size:
1. Click the View tab on the Ribbon, click the Page Width button to make it easier
to see the document text, and then click the Home tab on the Ribbon.
2. To verify that the pointer is located at the beginning of the document, press the
Ctrl+Home keys. If the insertion point was located anywhere else in the document,
it moves to the beginning now, so that it is located to the left of the “A” in “An.”
You could also have
clicked and dragged the
mouse to select the text,
but then you might have
accidentally selected the
photo as well. In this case,
a keyboard shortcut was
more efficient.
3. Press and hold the Shift key, and then click to the right of the fourth paragraph
marker, at the end of the fourth line of text. The entire four lines of text are
selected, as shown in Figure 1-22. The Font box in the Font group indicates the
selected text is formatted in Calibri. The word “Body” next to the font name
indicates that the Calibri font is intended for formatting body text. Body text is
ordinary text, as opposed to titles or headings.
