"Word 2007 Themes: How to Assign a Theme, Changing the Theme Color, Font and Graphic Effects To Your Documents?"


Word 2007 themes are used to apply certain decorative styles to your document, giving it a professionally formatted look and appeal. So, the document themes can make a document look more professional.

A theme in Word 2007 consists of three elements:

Colors: Each theme consists of a set of four colors for text and background, six colors for accents, and two colors for hyperlinks. You can change any single color element or all of them.

Fonts: Two fonts are chosen as part of the theme - one for the heading font use for headings and a second for the body font used for general text entry. The default fonts used in Word for a new document are Calibri for body text and Cambria for headings.

Design effects: These effects are applied to any graphics, pictures, charts or design elements in your document. The effects can include lines (borders), fills, and effects such as 3D, shading, gradation, drop-shadows, and other design subtleties.
