Another in my series of posts on
personal favorite improvements in Office 12...
Did you know there are a variety of underline styles available in Word?
Ever want to double underline some text? Or put a dotted underline under
certain words? Or a wavy underline? All of these styles are
frequently used within certain types of specialized documents, yet most people
only ever found the simple Underline button on the toolbar.
The rest of the underline styles are hidden away in the Font dialog, accessible
through the Format menu. But even if you found them, there wasn't really an efficient
way to apply these styles frequently.
In Word 12, we show a gallery of possible styles as part of the underline split
button on the Write tab. You can click the big part of the button to apply
the default single underline style to the selected text, or click the arrow to
reveal a gallery of secondary styles.
This could be a big timesaver if you use these styles a lot--and hopefully a lot
more people will find them as well.
