To distinguish a category of text, such as summary tasks (summary task: A task that is made up of subtasks and summarizes those subtasks. Use outlining to create summary tasks. Project automatically determines summary task information [such as duration and cost] by using information from the subtasks.), from other text in your project, you can change the formatting of all the text in that category in any view (view: The combination of one or more views [Gantt Chart, Resource Sheet, and so on] and if applicable, a table and a filter. Use views to work with information in a variety of formats. There are three types of views: Charts or graphs, Sheets, and Forms.) except form views.
- On the View menu, click the view you want.
To use a view that is not on the View menu, click More Views, click the view you want to use in the Views list, and then click Apply.
- On the Format menu, click Text Styles.
- In the Item to Change box, click the type of information you want to change, and then select formatting options for that information.
To change the formatting of another type of information without closing the dialog box, click a new type in the Item to Change box, and then select formatting options for that information.
If certain information in your view requires urgent attention, such as the completion date of a slipped task, you can call attention to that information by formatting it individually. To change the format of individual text, select the text, click Font on the Format menu, and then select formatting options for that information.
Note Some views don't have all formatting options available.
