A font is a complete set of characters with typeface and style that you use to type. Some fonts are all capitals. Other fonts are all symbols.
Fonts are really customizable: you can change their size, type, colour, spacing, and effects. The fonts that you have available in Word depend on what other applications you have installed and if you have installed any extra font packages.
Remember that font settings types, sizes, effects, spacing, etc. Choosing a Font Type To choose a font type, first select the text that you want to apply the font to. Then, click the Font drop- down menu and select the font that you want to apply. As you scroll over the font, you will see a preview being applied to your text. Choosing these fonts will help keep your document consistent.
Word also stores your recently used fonts near the top of the list.
If you know what font you want, you can type it into the drop-down list. Word will automatically complete the font name for you; press Enter to accept its selection.
The font face commands are also available on the mini toolbar. Changing the Font Size You can change your font size the same way: select a size from the menu or type a size in the box. If you choose to use the menu, you will see a preview as you scroll through the sizes. The font size commands are also available on the mini toolbar. Applying Font Color To change your font color, select the text that you want to change.
Then, pick a color from the list. Once again, you will see a preview of the color applied to your text. Once you see a color you like, click it to apply it. This can help you keep your document looking consistent and professional. You can also choose a standard color or click More Colors to pick a custom color. As you might expect, the Font Color command is also available on the mini toolbar.
Applying Highlighting In addition to the main font color, you can also apply highlighting to text. Simply select the text you want to highlight and click a color from the Font group of the Home tab. The Highlight Text command can also be found next to the color menu on the mini toolbar. Applying Advanced Underlining In the first module, we learned how to apply basic underlining.
If you click the drop-down arrow next to the underline command, you will see a menu of underline styles: You can click any of these styles to apply it. You can also click More Underlines to open the Font dialog, or choose a color for the underlining with the Underline Color menu.
Changing Case Have you ever typed a long title just to realize it should be all in caps? First, select the text that you want to change. Then, click the Font Case button on the Home tab and choose the case that you want. The Font Dialog In our last lesson, we learned about using the Home tab and the mini toolbar to apply font type, size, color, and underlining.
Opening the Font Dialog To open the Font dialog, click the option button in the bottom right corner of the Font group in the Home tab.
You can also choose an underline style and color. At the bottom, you will see a preview of your effects applied to sample text. You can use a regular size font, but select a percentage so the font is scaled down. The next option is Spacing. You can set spacing to Normal, Condensed, or Expanded, and then choose a point the same as font point sizes.
You can also modify position options to normal, raised, or lowered, and specify a point size for this position. The last check box enables Kerning, which adjusts the spacing between letters so that it looks consistent.
If you enable kerning, you can also specify what sizes you want Word to kern from a certain point on. Any options you set will be reflected in the preview pane. This way, whenever you open Word, this font will be used automatically. Once you click the Default command, you will be warned of the change that you are about to make.
To proceed, click Yes. To cancel, click No. To return to the Font dialog, click Cancel. If you are sending documents to people using older versions of Word, you should make sure the fonts are saved with the document. It was a straightforward port of Word 6.
