I do not know about you, but I like documents with clear headings or subheadings that label sections in a document. It makes it easier to see sections that interest you and it defines the area you are reading. In Microsoft word 2007 it has been made so easy to format text into headings and titles throughout your document.
Here’s how to make a normal word in a document into a heading or title:
- Open your Microsoft Word 2007 document.
- Make sure you are on the Home tab or ribbon.
- Select the text that you wish to make into a heading by making it blue.
- Under the heading styles (see arrow in screenshot) you will see what style your text is.
- My text that I have selected is Normal, however I want to make it a heading.
- To change the normal text to a heading, simply choose another style from the list.
- To see more choices of styles for your heading click on the arrow (circled in the screenshot above).
- Now when you mouse over the styles your text immediately changes to give you a preview.
- You can make your text a title, subtitle, heading 1 and so on..
Notes on making headings and titles in a word document:
- You can change the individual style for headings, titles etc by pressing on the change styles button. You can change font color, size etc. So for example if you do not like the look of the heading 1 style you can change its attributes.
