Applying and Customizing Quick Styles
The styles you use for formatting lists and text in your document are found on the
Home tab, in the Paragraph and Styles groups. The styles used for formatting tables
appear on the Table Tools contextual tab. To learn more about table styles in Word
2010, see Chapter 15, “Clarify Your Concepts in Professional Tables.”
Word 2010 also provides the Styles gallery and the Styles pane to help you see which styles
are available in your document and choose or modify them to suit your needs.
