Multiple versions of this lesson are available, choose the appropriate version for you:
How and why to use the STYLES GALLERY in 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.
- Click the line of text that you want to apply a Style to.
- Click the HOME ribbon and move the mouse to the Styles 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.
Hints & tips
Limit font styles and variations to three within any document. Otherwise it appears unprofessional and distracts the reader from your topic.
Ctrl A will select the entire document so you can make a Font change and apply it to the document with one click.
