What's a good way to access font options?

On the Home tab, in Font, click the More arrow to open the Font dialog box.

Select and right-click the text. Then click Font on the shortcut menu to open the Font dialog box.

Select text you want to change, and watch for the Mini toolbar that appears. Point to it and click anything you want there.

All of the above.

To change the font for a drop cap, you can use either the Mini toolbar or the Drop Cap dialog box (available from Drop Cap on the Insert tab).



You want to change the font in the WordArt you just applied. Where do you start?

Click WordArt on the Insert tab.

Highlight the WordArt text, and choose a different font in the Font dialog box.

Click to select the WordArt text (so it has a dashed border), and then click the Format tab under WordArt Tools.
