Format Using Change Case and Clear Formatting in MS Word 2007

There are a couple of ways to make formatting easier for you in Word 2007 and I am all about time saving and fewer key strokes!

It isn't always easy to find everything on the Ribbon in Word 2007, but this should help you out. You could change case and clear formatting in older versions of MS Word and now I will tell you how to do it in the latest version!

To change case in your document, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Home tab.
  2. In the Font group, click the Change Case command.
  3. You can also use the shortcut Shift + F3 to do the same thing.
  4. The command Clear Formatting is very intuitive and does exactly what you think it would.
  5. If, after you have made several formatting changes to a paragraph, you decide that you liked it better before you made the changes, you can reverse it back to the way you want it very quickly.

Follow the steps below:

  • Select the paragraph.
  • Open the Home tab.
  • In the Font group, click Clear Formatting.

Word will remove all formatting from the selected text, returning it to your document's default formats.

Remember, you do not want to use the Undo button because if you added any text, you run the risk of undoing that as well!
