Learning About Word’s Styles
A style is a pre-set combination of size, font style, and colour that is able to be applied directly to any text in the file. Styles will help your files to achieve a much more polished appearance and feel. Styles are also used to quickly switch around a number of items in your file at once. To make the most out of your style system in Word, here are some tips.
There are several built-in styles in Word, but depending on the version of Word you have, there may be more. To see all the available styles that Word includes, open a new Word document and then go to Options. From there, choose User Style and click the Style button. Then, choose the type of format that you want to use with your style in the editor and then enter a name for the style.
If you have multiple style definitions for a document, using a table to display them will make it easier to manage and access the different types of formatting for your piece of written content. Just type a cell in a column for each style definition. For example, to add a heading to your article you would simply type “heading” into the cell for the heading style. Then, type a cell for the body of your article and another cell for the footer. The heading and footer would appear on the same page as your article. You could then click on one of the cells to open the menu for the type of formatting you want to apply.
In addition to the built-in styles there are other types of styles that you can find in the Word documents templates and tools. You should be able to find a style in the folder of your Word program. When you open the folder in Word, open the Office folder, then click on “styles”. You will find an icon for each style in the toolbar that you can click to open the page in the Styles Editor. The number after the style name indicates the version number of the template that you are using.
If you would like to learn how to use styles within a document, you should read some of the documentation that comes with Word. One thing to watch out for when using styles is that they can make your text look disorganized. This is especially true if you have a lot of formatting to apply. The best way to keep your text neat and tidy is to use the Manual Layout tab. By clicking the Move tab you will be able to place your text automatically in the proper place according to the formatting that you have chosen. In the Properties pane you can change the styles that are currently applied.
If you are not sure what the drop-down menu for the Style option is, it means that you do not know the value of the CSS style for the item that you are trying to style. To change the value of the style for the item, type the letter ‘F’ followed by the style number that you have just found in the Resources folder of your Word document. For example, to change the style for all the heading in a document, type’style set 12′. You can click OK to apply the change.
