    Sometime you may need to adjust the horizontal size or width of characters in your document. Actually, Word provides you a way to do so and the scaling can be applied to any characters in a selection.

    To format the horizontal size of characters


    • Select the characters you want to adjust.


    • Display the Font dialog box by pressing Ctrl+D.


    • From the Font dialog box displayed, click on the Character Spacing tab.

    • Use the Scale: drop-down menu to specify the scaling you want applied to the characters. You can select from a pre-defined scale, or enter any value between 1% and 600%.


    • Click on OK.

    If you find you have a need to scale quite a few selections in your documents, you can add a scaling tool to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). With the Character Scaling tool in place, you can easily change the scaling of any selected text at any time.

    To add a scaling tool to the QAT


    • Click the Office ****on and then click Word Options. Word displays the Word Options dialog box.


    • At the left side of the dialog box, click the Customize option.


    • Using the Choose Commands From drop-down list, choose All Commands.


    • Scroll through the list of commands until you find the Character Scaling command.





    • Select the command by clicking it once.


    • Click the Add ****on. The command now appears at the right side of the dialog box.


    • Click the OK ****on. The command now appears on the Quick Access toolbar.
