Lesson 2: Formatting Text
In this lesson, I will explain how to type, to insert and to delete text. I will define what a font is and show you how to change the font, the font size, case, and color. In addition, I will explain how to highlight, apply text effects, superscript, subscript, strikethrough, bold, italic, underline, hide text, cut, copy, and paste.
You can apply multiple formats to a single piece of text. For example, you can change the color of a piece of text, apply strikethrough to it, and bold it.
In Word, you can use buttons to issue commands. Many of the buttons are toggle buttons. That means, if the option you select has not been applied, clicking the button applies it; if the option you select has been applied, clicking the button removes it. For example, if you want to bold, select the text and then click the Bold button. If you want to remove the bold later, select the text and then click the Bold button again.
