FORMAT PAINTER:
Remember on the toolbar along the top - there's a button with a little paintbrush on it? You've probably ignored it all this time - well give it a go and I'm sure you'll find it useful. It's called the Format Painter.

  • Highlight some text you want to copy the formatting from, then click the Format Painter
  • Now highlight the text you want to take the formatting TO and it is changed instantly.



SMALL CAPS
When you'd like your headings to stand out a bit more than just underline or bold, use a format called Small Caps.
You can turn it on by highlighting the heading and pressing CTRL, SHIFT, K, or going to the Format Menu, choosing Font and selecting Small Caps.


FIND AND REPLACE
If you ever find yourself wanting to change multiple instances of a word in a document, use the Find and Replace feature.

  • Open the document and go to the Edit menu.
  • Choose Replace.
  • In the 'Find What' box, type the old Word.
  • In the 'Replace With' box, type the new word.
  • Click 'Replace' to go a word at a time or 'Replace All' to do just that.
