Clearing Formatting Attributes
Note
Again, as described in Chapter 4, if you want the Font Color to change along with the
Theme if it is changed, use the colors found in the Theme Colors section of the color
palette. If you want the color to remain the same regardless of what Theme is applied,
select a color from the Standard Colors section or use More Colors.
Clearing Formatting Attributes
Up to now, we’ve been looking at adding font formatting attributes, but at times you might
want to remove all formatting attributes in a paragraph or selected text. To do so, Word
provides the Clear Formatting command on the Home tab (Alt+H+E). To clear all
formatting from a selected text or a paragraph, select the text or click in the paragraph and then
click the Clear Formatting tool in the Font group on the Home tab. Note that the Clear
Formatting command does not remove any highlighting you added using the Text
Highlight Color.
Note
To reset font formats to only font formatting defined in the Style, press Ctrl+Spacebar.
Alternatively, to reset paragraph formats to only the paragraph formatting defined in
the Style, press Ctrl+Q.
Positioning Your Text
The way your text looks—and how readable your readers think it is—has a lot to do with
the alignment you choose for the text. Traditional document alignment is often left-aligned,
in which the text is aligned along the left margin of the page only. Other alignments
include centered, which is often used for headings, and right-aligned, which aligns text
along the right margin, but this is rarely used for traditional documents. Another alignment,
justified, or fully-aligned text, aligns text along both the left and right margins. This is done
by adding and/or removing space between words as needed to spread out or squeeze the
text enough to make alignment on both edges possible. Table 7-4 gives you a look at
alignment differences.
