Changing the Font Size
As a general rule, try not to use more than three fonts in a document. If you use
too many fonts, the overall appearance can be annoying and distracting.
Not all computers have the same lists of fonts, so if you plan on sharing
documents with others, stick with common fonts that everybody’s computer
can display.
Changing the Font Size
The font changes the appearance of text, but the font size defines how big (or
small) the text may look. To change the font size, you have two choices:
Select a numeric size from the Font Size list box.
Choose the Grow Font/Shrink Font commands.
You can use both methods to change the font size of text. For example, you
may use the Font Size list box to choose an approximate size for your text, and
then use the Grow Font/Shrink Font commands to fine-tune the font size.
To change the font size, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text you want to change.
3. Choose one of the following:
• Click the Font Size list box and then click a number, such as 12 or
24, as shown in Figure 6-2.
• Click the Grow Font or Shrink Font icon.
