CHAPTER 6

Formatting Text

Change the Font, Size, and Color

By default, when you type text in a Word document, the program uses an 11-point Calibri font. You can change font — also called the typeface — text size, and color to alter the appearance of text in a document. For example, you might change the font, size, and color of your document’s title text to emphasize it. In addition, you can use Word’s basic formatting commands — Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, Subscript, and Superscript — to quickly add formatting to your text. And, you can change the font that Word applies by default for the body of a document.
