Styles Overview Styles are arguably the most important feature in Microsoft Word. Because everything that you do in Word has a style attached. The definition of a style is two-fold. First, you can think of a style as a set of pre-defined formatting instructions that you can use repeatedly throughout the document. Let's say each heading in a document must be centered, uppercase, bold, and a slightly larger font size. Each time you need to apply formatting to the heading, you have to go through the entire process to get the text the way you want it. If you store the formatting commands in a style, you can apply that style any time you need it without having to do all of the reformatting. Possibly more important however is that styles are used to "tag" or identify parts of a document. An example of this is whether text is part of a heading, a footnote, a hyperlink, or body text. These are all examples of styles in Word. If you're concerned about whether or not you need to learn styles, we can put it rather simply: you do. Styles are the architecture upon which Word is based. Just about everything in Word is style-driven. In fact, many people in the industry refer to Word as a "style-driven" program. Allen Wyatt uses an elegant metaphor about styles: "Styles are nothing more than a named definition of how text should appear.

Section 8. Peter Amstein and the Microsoft Office team are reluctant to make liberal use of extension mechanisms, even though provided in ODF 1. They want to avoid all appearance of an embrace-extend attempt. User assistance system[ edit ] In Microsoft Office , the Office Assistants were eliminated in favour of a new online help system.

One of its features is the extensive use of Super Tooltips, which explain in about one paragraph what each function performs.

Some of them also use diagrams or pictures.

These appear and disappear like normal tooltips, and replace normal tooltips in many areas. The Help content also directly integrates searching and viewing Office Online articles. SharePoint[ edit ] Microsoft Office includes features geared towards collaboration and data sharing.

As such, Microsoft Office features server components for applications such as Excel, which work in conjunction with SharePoint Services , to provide a collaboration platform. NET 2. Excel server exposes Excel Services, which allows any worksheet to be created, edited and maintained via web browsers. You can best understand this by comparing your text to water this is your content.

The appearance of the water depends on the attributes of the container in which it is placed. If you place it in a glass it will look one way; if you place it in a pitcher, it looks a different way. The relationship between text and styles is no different; if you change the style that has been applied to text, then the appearance of the text automatically changes. See Outline View in Microsoft Word "While the [quick] styles gallery has been available on the Word home tab since Word , some people just assume styles are meant for people who want big blue text.

Quick Tips Guides

Do not apply direct formatting. You will save yourself, and others, untold hours of hair-tearing. For shorter one-use documents, direct formatting is OK; you'll only regret not using styles about one time in six, on the other five out of the six, you'll save a bit of time. If you create document templates with direct formatting, you deserve what will happen to you when someone finds out and it won't be nice.

If the templates are for your own use, you deserve the loss of days, months, even years from your life that you'll spend fighting with Word and trying to figure out why your documents look so bad.

Trying to use Word without understanding and using styles is like pushing on a string. I resisted learning and using styles for years and now regret every day of those years because although that string was still very hard to push, it kept getting longer and longer, and had some very important projects tied to it!

Once you understand styles and the Word concept of organizing things into Chinese boxes everything falls into place and instead of pushing a string, you can push a button that turns on the very powerful text processing machine known as Microsoft Word and it will start doing your work for you instead of running around behind you trying to undo what you thought you just did.

These statements should be even stronger for those using Word because styles are even easier to use in the ribbon versions of Word. I just had occasion to edit a page document that was created without using styles.

Microsoft Office 2007

It was formatted completely with direct formatting. Each page ended with a page break. Each time it had to be saved, the save took more than 60 seconds, during which time Word was frozen. A similar-sized document formatted using Styles takes less than 3 seconds for me to save.

When a page break must be forced, instead of using a manual page break, the paragraph to begin the new page is formatted using a style that has "page break before" paragraph formatting. This difference was due entirely to the document being directly formatted - a much higher level of complexity. Each paragraph mark in a directly-formatted paragraph carries with it up to fifty different formatting commands. When formatted using a style, that paragraph mark will carry with it one command - use this style!
