Preview Formatting Before You Apply It
Need the perfect document design, or the right formatting to ensure that your text, table, or graphic coordinates with the rest of your document? Forget time-consuming trial and error. In the 2007 Microsoft Office system programs Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, you can preview many types of document formatting before you apply them. Point to an entry in an applicable gallery, such as the Themes gallery to see font, color, and graphic effect formatting changes all at once throughout the document, or the SmartArt Styles gallery to preview a variety of formats for your SmartArt diagram.
Live Preview is available for Document Themes in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as Quick Style Sets in Word, Table Styles in all three programs, and many graphic formatting galleries (such as Picture Styles or Shape Styles). Note that Live Preview is not currently available for Chart Styles.
