A (n) subscript is a gallery-stored reusable formatted object. The format of all resumes is either wholly functional or totally chronological. That is, there are no nested sections such as career history which would be contained within the resume itself.
Subscripts are useful because they can contain a lot of information in a small space and they can be reused in multiple documents. For example, I might create a subsection called "Previous Work" with a template that contains spaces for me to insert my previous jobs. Then, when I need to add a job description to my resume, I can simply copy the contents of the "Previous Work" subsection onto a new page or section and edit it as needed. When I'm finished, I can click the "Insert Subscript" button on the Template tab and bam! A new section on my resume.
Subscripts can also include tables or figures. These additional objects are known as embedded objects. To insert an embedded object, first make sure that you have the necessary permissions. Next, go to the folder where you saved the template. Open the file named "template.dotx" or ".dotm". Either one will work.
Scroll down to the bottom of the document and you should see a section called "Embedded Objects".
Business letters are indented in one of six ways: normal, open, block, semi-block, modified block, and modified semi-block. Simply put, "semi-" implies that the initial lines of paragraphs are indented, whereas "modified" means that the sender's address, date, and closure are indented greatly. All other types of business letters are called "formal." The term "business letter format" refers to the standard indentation for each type of letter.
In general, business letters are written to convey information from a writer to a reader. They can be as simple or elaborate as you like them to be. Some contain only a single paragraph while others have several pages of text. The purpose of most business letters is simply to notify recipients of certain events or to ask for something. There are two main types of business letters: formal and informal.
Formal letters are used when you want to make a serious impression on your readers. These letters are usually sent from organizations to their customers or other parties. Most formal letters include an opening paragraph that is also used as an excuse to start each section of the letter. This is followed by a closing paragraph which serves as a summary of the letter as a whole. Sometimes more than one letter is merged into one form to save time for the sender. For example, if you are writing to many people at once, instead of sending out multiple letters, one big letter can be sent out with separate sections for each recipient.
Each character in your document has been formatted. The formatting specifies the typeface, character size, color, and whether the character is underlined, bolded, or capitalized. In addition, each paragraph has been formatted with a left and right indent.
The key elements in creating a formatting style are the font name, size, color, and attribute settings. These elements combine to create the appearance of your text.
For example, if you want all the text in your document to be sans-serif, 12 point, blue ink, not underlined, then you would use Helvetica at 10 points with blue ink as your formatting style.
See the Font Guide for more information on font styles.
Your formatting style will control the look of new material that you insert into a document with the Format Painter tool. If you do not specify a particular formatting style when you paste data, the pasted material will use the default style of the system font (usually Arial).
If you want the pasted material to have the same style as existing content in the document, you need to tell the program specifically what style to use. This can be done by selecting some or all of the inserted characters and using the Apply Style command from the Home tab.
|Ctrl+I||Format the selected text as italic.|
|Ctrl+U||Format the selected text as underlined.|
|Ctrl+=||Format the selected text as subscript.|
|Ctrl+Shift+=||Format the selected text as superscript.|
Professional letters can be written in a variety of styles. Letters are divided into two types: block form and indented form. The examples below can assist you in deciding which style you like. Do note that both styles are acceptable in formal correspondence.
Block form is the most common letter format. It consists of an initial paragraph that states the main point of the letter, followed by additional paragraphs that support or clarify this first impression.
Indented form is used when the primary purpose of the letter is to provide space for private notes between sentences. These notes are known as "indents." They often contain information about the writer's feelings about the subject at hand or details relevant only to him or her. Indents are indicated by a comma followed by three spaces on each line of the indent.
A letter written in block form can include a paragraph or more as a supporting statement or explanation. This second paragraph would then receive its own indention to show it is separate from the first.
It is acceptable to use both indented and block forms in the same letter. For example, you could start with an indented paragraph to give your reader context about the topic, and then move onto the main body of the letter in block form.
