Working with fonts
Word gives you control of text formatting used in your documents. The Font group in the
Home tab is the place to look for most of the text formatting options you will need.
Use the Font group to apply text formatting.
The Font group helps you quickly apply formatting to your text. You can:
Change the font face, which changes the overall text style
Make text smaller or larger
Change the case and the color
Apply formatting, such as bold or italics
Highlight certain words or phrases
In this exercise, you will work within the word0301 document and make some changes
to the fonts. You will start by changing the font face then change the size and color of the
headline.
1
If it isn’t still open from the previous exercise, open word0301.docx and scroll down to
the i nal section, entitled Conserving the Panda , which has no formatting applied to it.
2
Select the heading and the two paragraphs following it. You will change the font face to
Verdana for all the text.
In this lesson you’re choosing Verdana, a sans-serif font, because this document will be distributed
online. Sans-serif fonts, like Arial and Helvetica, are easier to read online. If you were distributing
this in a printed format, you would have been more likely to choose a font like Times New
Roman, a font with serifs, that is better for printed documents.
3
In the Ribbon in the Font group, click the down arrow after the label of the current font
Times New Roman and select Verdana from the drop-down menu.
4
Select the headline, Conserving the Panda , and move the cursor so it hovers over the mini
toolbar that appears after you have selected the text.
Mini toolbar appears to the right of a selected item.
