The most common type of change made to any block of text is modifying the font, size, and color. We’ll use a paragraph from the sample flyer publication, shown in Figure 1, to demonstrate how to make font changes in Microsoft Publisher.
To begin, select the group of text to modify and then right-click on that selection with the mouse. Choose the Change Text option and another list will appear as seen in Figure 2. From that list, select Font. Once this has been done, a dialog box like the one in Figure 3 will appear. Here, changes can be made to the font type, style, size, and color. In addition, other options can be applied that include various forms of underlining and adding text effects.
The preview pane in this dialog box allows you to see how the different changes will appear before they are actually applied. Using the preview pane is a great way to experiment with the many choices without having to be bothered with applying and undoing changes just to see what they will look like. As an example, we will choose to change the font type to Verdana, change the font color to blue, and apply the Outline effect. A screenshot of the dialog box with these changes made is shown in Figure 4. The resulting changes in the publication can be viewed in Figure 5.
