Word Font Window: On Demand

Word Font Window: On Demand

Okay, so when working in MS Word, we all know about the usual toolbar buttons and lists that allow us quick access to things like font type, size, bold, italics, underline, color, etc.

But, did you know that there are even more aspects of your fonts that can be manipulated?

There are things like character spacing and text effects to be explored, along with options like strikethrough text, superscripts, shadow, embossed text, engraved text and so on.

So, the question becomes: “Where are all these things? After all, I certainly don’t see them on the Formatting toolbar.”

You’re right. You don’t see all the options on that toolbar, you just see the most frequently used items.

So, for more options, you’ve got to go to the Font window.

One way to access the “extras” is to use the Format menu, Font choice.

A faster way would be to do a quick Ctrl + D.

(If you want to change text that’s already in the document, highlight the text to be changed before doing the Ctrl + D).

Yep, that’s right. With a simple Ctrl + D, you’re taken right to a complete source for text options!
