Description

This is the first in a series of 2 workshops to help you complete a paper, thesis, dissertation, or manuscript to meet the requirements of the school or publisher. See the Additional Information link below for details about the series of workshops. An Introduction to Styles in Word. Do you produce multipage documents with sections and subheadings? Do you find yourself spending more time working on the formatting than on the content? Microsoft Word is a styles-based word processor that provides powerful document formatting at the click of the mouse. Understanding the way styles and document themes work can give you better control over the way your documents look and open doors to features you may not be aware of. Demonstrations include creating a Table of Contents in 7 seconds (Really!).

Styles is a feature used in many word processing and publication applications (like Adobe InDesign). The concepts in this workshop will apply to these applications.

This workshop is not an introduction to using Word. We will focus on using, modifying, and creating styles in Word for Windows and Mac.
