  • To copy the format to more than one block of text, double-click the Format Painter button, then click again to turn it off.
understanding styles
Understanding Styles
  • A style is a set of formatting options that have been named and saved.
  • Using styles can save time and add consistency to a document.
  • For example, you can apply formatting manually, with Format Painter, to every heading in a research paper.
  • Or, if you used a style, you could apply the style with the click of your mouse to each heading.
applying quick styles
Applying Quick Styles
  • Word comes with many built-in Quick Styles.
  • To apply a Quick Style, Home tab>Styles Group
  • Point to a Quick Style to see the Live Preview.
changing themes
Changing Themes
  • A theme is a coordinated set of fonts, styles, and colors.
  • The theme determines the default font, the heading colors in the Heading Quick styles, and other features.
  • To view themes, Page Layout tab>Themes group> Themes button and choose one of the 20 built-in themes.
  • The definitions of Quick Styles are tied to themes.
redefining an existing quick style
Redefining an Existing Quick Style
  • If none of the Quick Styles formats the text the way you want, create your own style.
  • The easiest way is to start with an existing Quick Style and make changes until you are satisfied.
  • To redefine an existing Quick Style, with the formatted text selected, right-click the Quick Style you want to redefine to open a shortcut menu.
  • Once you make your changes, the selected text doesn’t change, but the Quick Style is redefined to match it. The redefined Quick Style is available only in the current document.
creating a new quick style
Creating a New Quick Style
  • You can also create a brand new Quick Style.
  • The easiest way to do this is to first format text with the font, style, and any other characteristics that you want.
  • To name your style and add it to the Quick Styles gallery, open the Quick Styles gallery, and then click Save Selection as a New Quick Style on the menu at the bottom of the gallery.
clearing formatting
Clearing Formatting
  • You can use the Clear Formatting command to clear manual formatting and styles.
  • First, select the text to be cleared.
  • You can then click Home tab>Font group>Clear Formatting button. Or, you can open the Quick Styles gallery, and then click Clear Formatting on the menu at the bottom of the gallery.
  • When you remove a style, the Normal Quick Style is automatically applied.
