With Word 2007, you can choose a set of styles that are designed to work perfectly together to provide you with colors and formats that will compliment your document.
Once you choose the Quick Style that you like, you can then apply the styles from the Quick Style Gallery while you continue to work on your document. Microsoft Word also allows you to apply a different Quick Style set at any time throughout your business document. Each set may include styles for several heading levels, body text, quotes, and titles.
To work with the Quick Style feature, click on the Microsoft Office button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. Then select “New." When the window opens, you will notice that it is the same window in which you would choose a template. Instead of selecting a template, you would select “Blank Document." When your blank document opens, you would look on the toolbar under the Home tab and select the style(s) you wish to apply. You can also click on the Change Styles button to adjust the set, color, and font.
Word 2007 has a great tool that allows you to see how Quick Style will look in your document by pointing to a Quick Style set without clicking on it. It is an instant preview.
It is important to note that the Quick Style set will reflect the style that has been applied in the document. For example, if you have selected that all of the headings in the document have Heading 2 styles, then the Quick Style set will apply a Heading 2 style. The set will not fix formatting errors within your document so be sure that you analyze your document accordingly.
