PC Genie Tip
In Microsoft Word, there are two sets of shortcuts for changing the font size of the
current text selection. The first set grows or shrinks the sizes in increments listed in
the pull down font size menu (i.e. 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16 etc.)
Increase the font size Ctrl + SHIFT + >
Decrease the font size Ctrl + SHIFT + <
The alternative shortcuts change by a single point size at a time.
Increase the font size by 1 point Ctrl + ]
Decrease the font size by 1 point Ctrl + [
The second set in particular is handy if you're trying to fit some text into a specific
space. For example, expanding a heading to fill the whole line without wrapping to a
second line. Just highlight the text then use the shortcuts until it's just right.
