The Style Gallery provides creative heading styles as well as functionality within a document.
When to use
Styles are simply pre-designed font styles that save time rather than creating your own. It is common to use Styles in a report format in order to visually separate topics. Styles also act as organizational tools which we will address in another lesson.
- Click the line of text that you want to apply a Style to.
- Click the HOME ribbon and move the mouse to the Style Gallery.
- Click the drop-down arrow to view all the available Styles and float the mouse over the styles to preview the effect on your text.
- Finally, click the Style you like best.
Limit font styles and variations to three within any document. Otherwise, it appears unprofessional and distracts the reader from your topic.
Clicking in the left margin beside a line will select the entire line, plus the MiniBar appears and now has a Styles button included. This saves time from traveling up to the Home Ribbon to access the Style Gallery.Login to download
