Changing Font Colors

When using the shading options, you might find that the current text color does not show up that well on the fill color or pattern that you selected. You can quickly change the font color for selected text anywhere in your document.

To change the color of text, follow these steps:

  1. Select the text that you want to change to a different font color.

  2. Select the Format menu and select Font . The Font dialog box appears.

  3. In the Font dialog box, click the Font Color drop-down arrow and select the color you want to use (Word automatically defaults to black-colored fonts because this is typically what you use in business documents that you print).

  4. When you have completed your selection, click OK .

You might find that you have to play around with the fill color and the font color to get an ideal combination on the page. You might even have to print out a sample page to see whether the colors work well on a printed page. Intensity of color typically varies between color printers. You might also find that by bolding the text that you've placed on top of a fill color, the text becomes more readable.
