Using Styles
Although you could take time to format text manually, it’s much easier to use
Format Painter instead. Format Painter tells Word, “See the way I formatted that
chunk of text over there? Apply that same formatting to a new chunk of text.”
To use Format Painter, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text that contains the formatting you want to copy.
3. Click the Format Painter icon, as shown in Figure 6-14.

4. Select the text that you want to format. (Move the mouse pointer
over the beginning of the text you want to format, hold down the left
mouse button, and drag the mouse until you reach the end of the text
you want to format.)
Word applies your formatting to your selected text.
Using Styles
As an alternative to choosing fonts, font sizes, and text styles (like bold)
individually, Word offers several predefined formatting styles. To apply a style to
your text, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text that you want to format.
3. Click the up/down arrows of the Styles scroll bar to scroll through the
different styles available. Or click the More button to display a
pulldown menu of all the Quick Formatting styles, as shown in Figure 6-15.
