Formatting Text for Emphasis
If you want to add emphasis or style to text in a document, you can apply text formatting. In addition to the standard formatting options—Bold, Italic, Underline, etc.—Word provides additional text formatting, including Color, Gradient, Strikethrough, Superscript, Subscript, and Highlight, as well as enhanced text effects, including presets, Outline, Shadow, Reflection, Glow, Number Styles (New!), Ligatures (New!) (letter spacing), and Stylistic Sets (New!). In the Font dialog box, you can apply even more effects, including 3-D formatting. To help you format sentences and change capitalization, you can change text case.
