Understanding the Benefits of Styles
By default, the Quick Style gallery offers 16 styles, each designed for a specific
purpose. As you gain more experience with Word, you will learn how to use a wider array
of styles. You’ll also learn how to create your own styles. Styles allow you to change a
document’s formatting in an instant. But the benefits of heading styles go far beyond
attractive formatting. Heading styles allow you to reorganize a document or generate a
table of contents with a click of the mouse. Also, the heading styles are set up to keep
a heading and the body text that follows it together, so a heading is never separated
from its body text by a page break. Each Word document includes nine levels of
heading styles, although only the Heading 1 and Heading 2 styles are available by default in
the Quick Styles gallery. Whenever you use the lowest heading style on the Quick Styles
gallery, the next lowest level is added to the Quick Styles gallery. For example, after you
use the Heading 2 style, the Heading 3 style appears in the Styles group in the Quick
Styles gallery.
After you format a document with a variety of styles, you can alter the look of the
document by changing the document’s theme.
Working with Themes
The document theme controls the variety of fonts, colors, and other visual effects
available as you format a document. Forty-four different themes are included in Word, with
each offering a coordinated assortment of fonts, colors, and text effects. Created by
professional designers, themes ensure that a document has a polished, coherent look. When
making formatting decisions, you often have the option of choosing a design element
created for the current theme. For instance, when selecting a font color in Tutorial 1,
you noticed that the colors on the Font Color palette are divided into Theme Colors and
