Modify a Style’s Font Color to help find missed formatting

Quickly determine which paragraphs in a document have been formatted using one style, rather than another, by changing the colour of the formatted text.

To do this, click the Home tab on the Ribbon, hover over the style’s name you want to edit in the Styles gallery. Now, right click it and select Modify. In the Modify Style dialog, change the Font Color to something that will stand out on the page (such as purple) and click OK.

Now scroll through your document to see if the style has been applied everywhere you wanted it applied. Remember, if you don’t make any changes at this point, you can quickly undo the colour change by selecting Undo.

Otherwise, when you are done formatting the document, set the colour back to the original Font Color by repeating the above steps.
