Note
The majority of keyboard shortcuts for text attributes and effects as well as Ribbon
commands are toggle commands , which means that you perform the same action both
to apply and to remove a formatting attribute. The exception to this is the keyboard
shortcut for the Underline command, Ctrl+U. If an underline style other than the
single underline is applied, then press Ctrl+U once to change the underline to a single
underline or twice to remove all underlining. Note that the Underline command on the
Ribbon will remove all underlining in one action.
High-End Typography in Word 2010
Depending on the nature of the documents you create and the audience who reads them,
working with the specific characteristics of the fonts you choose can be an important part
of what you do. In Word 2010, you now have the ability to take advantage of specific font
qualities available with some OpenType fonts—things like ligatures, stylistic sets, number
styles, and more.
OpenType fonts were originally a shared venture between Microsoft and Adobe. Today,
they are an open format font specification that supports a wide range of fonts in numerous
languages around the globe. OpenType fonts often support additional typography features
that other fonts do not—such as ligatures, which treat two characters as a single serif (the
letters i are one example of a ligature that is commonly used), and stylistic sets, which offer
a range of styles based on a single font choice.
