                                                                    (you’ll need this
Word Processing Notes                                               for section 4)

There are three levels of formatting common to most word processors.
When troubleshooting formatting problems, it helps to understand how
each level works. Read the following and complete the activities.
          (This is where you will be asked to insert a page break in section 4)
1. Text Level
Formatting that can be applied to each character is called Text Level
Formatting. Settings at this level include: bold, underline, italic, FONT
STYLE, font size, font colour. Format the following as indicated:

Bold           Italic        Underline             Bold+Underline
                                                                                  Where to Look
Times New Roman              Chalkboard            Webdings
                                                                                  Menu -> Format/Font

RED            Blue          Bold+Red              Italic+Blue

Size 24        Size 15       Size 12               Blue+Size 10

Brush Script                 Arial+Bold+Red+Size 18

2. Paragraph Level
Settings here apply to the entire paragraph. You cannot apply paragraph
level formats to parts of a word or sentence without affecting the whole
paragraph. The computer views a paragraph as everything between two
paragraph markers (set by the [return] key). Note: [return] drops the
curser to a new paragraph. [shift] + [return] drops the curser to a new line
keeping paragraph settings intact. Apply paragraph formats to the
sentences below as indicated.

Line spacing is a paragraph setting. Always use the line spacing feature;
never use the [return] key to space your work. Space these sentences at
1.5

   b) Add page numbering (include first page).
                                                Margins -> Format/Document
   c) Change the paper size to legal.

   e) Add an artistic Page Border
                                                  Page Borders -> Format/Borders & Shading
4. Cool Automatic Features
Word can also do some cool automatic stuff. Follow the following steps to
develop an automatic Table of Contents.
  1. Highlight this documents title and set it to be Heading 1 (use Styles).
  2. Highlight each section title and set it to Heading 2
  3. Insert a Page Break after the first paragraph of this worksheet (just
     before 1. Text level)
  4. Insert a Table of Contents on the top of the new page (Insert-Index
     and Tables)
  5. Insert another Page Break so the Table of Contents is on its’ own
     page (insert it after the Table of Contents).


5. Optional
