Font object (Word)
Contains font attributes (such as font name, font size and color) for an object.
Use the Font property to return the Font object. The following instruction applies bold formatting to the selection.
Selection.Font.Bold = True
The following example formats the first paragraph in the active document as 24point Arial and italic.
Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range With myRange.Font .Bold = True .Name = "Arial" .Size = 24 End With
The following example changes the formatting of the Heading 2 style in the active document to Arial and bold.
With ActiveDocument.Styles(wdStyleHeading2).Font .Name = "Arial" .Italic = True End With
You can use the New keyword to create a new, stand-alone Font object. The following example creates a Font object, sets some formatting properties, and then applies the Font object to the first paragraph in the active document.
Set myFont = New Font myFont.Bold = True myFont.Name = "Arial" ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range.Font = myFont
You can also duplicate a Font object by using the Duplicate property. The following example creates a new character style with the character formatting from the selection and italic formatting. The formatting of the selection is not changed.
Set aFont = Selection.Font.Duplicate aFont.Italic = True ActiveDocument.Styles.Add(Name:="Italics", _ Type:=wdStyleTypeCharacter).Font = aFont
