  1. When you open a new document in Word, the text will appear in Times New Roman 10 point, colored black and aligned to the left of the page. These settings, called “default” because they are the default settings in the program, were chosen deliberately because the Times New Roman font is considered more readable for a varieHow to create and manage macrosty of uses that can have a Word document, from business letter, to the faxes and memos. The style that is used in these cases, it is called “Normal” and you can read the name at the beginning of the Formatting Toolbar.
  2. In addition to Normal, there are other styles that appear by default when you start Word. They are called Heading 1, 2 and 3 and are based on a widely used and well-known second font, Arial. To see them, click on the drop-down menu that appears at the far left of the Formatting Toolbar. If you find it, click the double arrow to expand the menu. A “style” is a custom format to be applied to the text, which includes a unique set formatting and font, size, color, and all the characteristics of a paragraph, for example, line spacing, and text alignment . In this Step by step we used Word, but the procedure is very similar also explain that for the previous version.
  3. To apply one of these styles to the text, select the paragraph you want by clicking three times on a word contained in it, or by moving the mouse to the left until you see an arrow, at this point, click and drag the mouse to the bottom of the paragraph, and then apply the style by simply selecting it from the drop-down menu. If the document is still being prepared, you can select the style before you start writing. The text of the first paragraph will follow the style chosen, but when you press the ENTER key Word continue using the Normal style.
  4. All styles discussed so far are called “Paragraph Styles” and you can recognize them by opening the Format menu / Style, for the fact that next to their name have the characteristic paragraph mark. This means that as well as change the font, include attributes that define the alignment, line spacing, tabs and indents. To see the properties of a style, you simply move the mouse pointer over the name and allow it to stand for a moment. To edit an existing style, click it with the right mouse button and select “Edit” from the menu. Formatted text word
  5. The “Modify Style” allows you to change any attribute of the selected style. We have chosen to modify the style “Heading 3” changing color and size. Put a check mark next to the “Update automatically” and click “OK”. The entire text of the document is formatted as “Heading 3” will change appearance, assuming a new dimension and a new color.
  6. In addition to modifying existing styles, you can create new ones by clicking on the button “New Style” in the Task Pane. First select a name, which obviously should not be the same as those already present. In the drop-down menu “Style based on” you can select a style from those proposed by Word, which will serve as the basis for our personal style. In the “Style for following paragraph” instead choosing which style will be applied automatically after pressing the ENTER key, that is, when you go head to start a new paragraph. After making all the changes to the character and the other parameters, simply click “OK” to see the style listed among the others already existing, ready to be applied.
  7. A second way, perhaps even more comfortable, to create a new style is to use a typical formatting of Word. Assume that you have just changed a title by applying a font and size that you particularly like. Instead of following the steps listed in the previous step and set all the attributes, select your creation. Click the New Style button in the task pane and give a name to the style. As well as paragraph styles, you can define the Character Styles, whose powers are confined to only change the attributes of character, for example, the choice of font, color or size. This kind of style is useful to highlight words or phrases within a paragraph, without changing the setting.
