Applying Styles

  • A style is a collection of formatting characteristics that defines the way in which text appears in a document

  • A paragraph style affects the appearance of the paragraph, such as its alignment, line spacing, and tab settings

  • A text style affects the font style, size, or applies bold and italic formats to the text in a paragraph.

  • Built-in styles provided by Word can be availed by using the Styles and Formatting command in the Format menu.

  • Word also allows you to create new styles and copy these styles using Format Painter.

Working with Tables

A table is used to organize and present data in a structured manner. A table is made up of horizontal rows and vertical columns and helps organize and present data in a structured manner. E.g., a scenario where you need to present the grades of different students over the last three years. You can group and organize the information in a concise and easy-to-read format as shown in the following figure:

You can use Word’s Table feature to create columns and rows. You can then add formatting to enhance the look of your table

Creating Tables

  • To create a table, you need to specify the number of rows & columns

  • You can add data (text or graphics) in each cell of a table

  • You can use the arrow keys to move between table cells.

  • By default, Word applies a border around the cells of a table

  • If you remove the table border, you will see gridlines which are not printable



To create a table

  1. Position the cursor at the location where the table needs to be inserted

  2. Select the Table à Insert àTable command (Insert Table dialog box)

  3. Make selections and click OK

There are several Auto Formatted Tables.

  • The Table AutoFormat dialog box is displayed, when selected:

Managing Page Layout

Word provides various page setup options such as alignment, margins, and orientation to adjust the layout of the document on a paper. Page setup options include:

    • Margins: Allows you to change the default page margins

      • You can set custom margins for a document

      • In general, margins affect all the pages of a document. Also, headers and footers are contained in the top and bottom margins, so make sure you do not decrease the margins too much or the header and footer information might not print completely

      • It’s always a good practice to preview the entire document before printing if you have adjusted the margins.

    • Page orientation: Allows you to adjust objects that do not fit the page width-wise

      • Sometimes, you can choose to print the document in landscape orientation rather than the default portrait orientation

    • Paper size: Allows you to change the current page size for printing purposes

      • For certain documents, you might need to change the paper size for printing.

    • Page break: Allows you to create a new page when there is more text on a page than the margins can accommodate

      • When there is more text on a page than the margins, Word creates a new page by inserting a page break. Word’s page breaks do not always fall where you want them to in a document, so when you have completed a long document, you will often need to paginate it manually by adding page breaks
