Using styles in Microsoft Word

  1. Good intro to styles. There are 2 additional basic tips I like to share with new users.

    That is I find it helpful to go to the Home tab > Paragraph group and click on the “Show/Hide” (backward P) button. It displays “non-printing” characters such as tabs, spaces and paragraph marks (to name just the most common). I find that seeing these non printing characters makes it easier to figure out what is going on when there is a “spacing” problem.

    The other is in 2016, go to the View tab > Show group and turn on “Ruler” check box. This displays the “rulers” across the top and left side of the document.
