Fun With Fonts

FONTS = styles of text, such as ARIAL, TIMES NEW ROMAN, or  COURIER

To change a font we first must SELECT IT, then go to the FONT BOX:

 

To change the SIZE of a font, we go to the FONT SIZE box, just to the right of the FONT box:

 

The buttons for changing FONTS to BOLDITALICS and UNDERLINE, are all found on the Formatting Toolbar:

The most basic attribute of text in Word 2013 is its typeface, or font. The font sets up the way your text looks ó its overall text style. Although deciding on a proper font may be agonizing (and, indeed, many graphic artists are paid well to choose just the right font), the task of selecting a font in Word is quite easy. It generally goes like this:
  1. On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the down arrow to display the Font Face list.

    A menu of font options appears.

    The top part of the menu shows fonts associated with the document theme. The next section contains fonts you've chosen recently, which is handy for reusing fonts. The rest of the list, which can be quite long, shows all fonts in Windows that are available to Word.

  2. Scroll to the font you want.

    The fonts in the All Fonts part of the list are displayed in alphabetical order as well as in context (as they appear when printed).

  3. Click to select a font.

You can also use the Font menu to preview the look of fonts. Scroll through the list to see which fonts are available and how they may look. As you move the mouse over a font, any selected text in your document is visually updated to show how that text would look in that font. The text isnít changed until you select the new font.
