A style is a predefined combination of font style, color, and size that can be applied to any text in your document. Styles can help your documents achieve a more professional look and feel. So you would use the “Title” style for your title, “Body Text” style for body text, “Caption” style for the picture captions, and “Heading 1” for the major headings.

You can also use styles to quickly change several things in your document at the same time.

The way we use styles and the different effect they have on text are detailed below.

Normal Style

The Normal style is the default style and all it does is make the text have a default font style (Calibri) and font size (11).

No Spacing

The No Spacing style reduces the spaces in between the text and makes them look muddle up.

The circled part in the image below shows you what the line spacing was.

Heading 1

Heading 1 gives your text a new font style (Cambria Heading) and a font size of 14 it also makes the text BOLD.

Heading2 does the same thing as Heading1 but the only difference is the font size is reduced to 13.

N.B – We are stopping at Heading2 because as we move down the only change is the font size.


As the name implies it is a style that depict the text in a title format and it is always underlined. The font style is still Cambria (Heading) but the font size now is 26.
