Modifying Text Color

There are different color pickers you can use to apply colors to text.

To change the color of text:

  1. Select the text whose color you wish to change.
  2. Click the Font Color button in the Font group.

    The Colors pop-up menu appears (Figure 4.23).

    The text changes color.

  4. (Optional) If you want to use a color picker to choose a color not in the pop-up menu, choose More Colors.
