Working with Styles - Part 2

 Jul 11, 2016

Here is Part 2 of my "Working with Styles in Microsoft Word" blog series.

As you have now applied styles over the document to ensure a consistent font theme which may include pre-sets such as Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 etc., you have in fact created a set of bookmark equivalents that would allow readers to navigate directly to a topic.

These bookmark equivalents can be found in the Navigation pane located in the View ribbon.

Furthermore, new to 2013/16 Word Styles is that of the applied Heading styles you will now find an arrow on the left of the heading where a Heading style is applied that would allow you to expand or retract that group of content whilst in the document. The arrow will appear where you have the cursor hovering over the heading.

You will also find that the Heading Styles 1, 2, 3 etc. applied over headings and subheading are now displayed in a hierarchy format that will allow better navigation to a topic.

Heading Styles in Word is a great way to ensure a consistent font theme while enhancing the usability of the file.

Stay tuned for more on Word Styles.
