    The Font group provides unlimited customization of text. It allows users to change the font or style of the text, the size of the text, provide text emphasis, and even change the colors.


    Beginning in the upper left-hand corner, the Font Selection Box and Text Size boxes allow customizations of hundreds of font designs and text sizes. The capital “A” button on the right clipboard_e0e21acc00d0a479f7d885c1f493b32cc.png allows the user to gradually increase the text size with the smaller capital “A” button next to it on the right clipboard_e8c7475939d199702a5a29e80c83b7124.png decreases the text size. The lower row of the Font group contains Bold clipboard_e0d7e0ba55004aafad346024417dcace5.png, Italics clipboard_e5a54dfbde55c4490573e6be9e5ed268a.png, and Underline clipboard_e473d886cafe87e43887e30684a0b2552.png (without underline options for line thickness). To the right of the Underline, the button is the border settings button clipboard_ec55f94e8e764dc7a737f7837db0b8c8b.png. This button allows the user to control border lines around highlighted cells. Users can select top, left, right, bottom, or all borders to their selected cells. To the right of the border settings are the paint can icon clipboard_eef19d204a75ca4d8fe67e22e3af244b2.png. The painted icon allows the user to color a cell. Finally, to the right of the paint can menu is an icon of the letter “A” with a line underneath clipboard_e5ec9b095433fa9dc7620409426e489f5.png. This control allows the user to change the color of any selected text with an almost infinite number of color options. By clicking on the arrow pointing down and to the right in the Font group, an expanded menu with even more options will launch, allowing the user with many more text customization options, as well as the option to set default text options and effects.
