Task panes or panes
Clicking the dialog box launcher shown in Figure 2.16 opens the Font dialog box shown
in Figure 2.17. Dialog boxes offer scrolling lists, drop-down lists, text boxes, check boxes,
option buttons, command buttons, and other controls familiar to most computer users. You
can click Cancel to close a dialog box without applying settings, or OK to fi nalize and apply
your choices.
Dialog boxes enable you to refi ne formatting and other commands using familiar controls.
Task panes or panes
Similar to dialog boxes, task panes (now in Offi ce 2013 more often simply referred to as
panes ) appear on-screen to help you navigate, perform research, apply formatting, and
more. Think of them as dialog boxes that enable you to type while they’re on-screen. Some
of the panes open when you select a particular command such as the Thesaurus, while you
toggle others such as the Navigation pane on and off as you work in an application. Still
others appear when you select certain items for formatting, such as when you double-click
a chart title. Figure 2.18 shows the Format Chart Title task pane in Word.
