Working with Text in a Microsoft Office Application
Adding text in an Office application is easy; just start typing. If the default text formatting doesn’t suit your needs, however, Office also offers numerous text formatting and customization options.
The Home tab in Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Excel is home to a solid collection of text-formatting tools, giving you the option to select a font style and size; change text color; or apply bold, italic, and underlining to your text. You can also align text, use WordArt to create sophisticated text objects, search for and replace text, and use the Font dialog box for more advanced formatting.
Finally, you can fix any spelling errors by performing a spell check—something you need to do on every Office document.
