Anyone here well versed in Word 2003?


Recommended Posts

I recently got it installed on my Win 7 rig. Had not used it since it was on the public library computers many years ago, so my memory is sketchy. I'm trying to figure out how I used to do reverse printing (i.e. white text on black background). Example:


I vaguely remember it required highlighting the text twice and various other stuff. but can't figure it out. Can anyone provide a step-by-step? Thanks.

You could change the background of the whole page to black (Format -> Background), then change the font colour to white.

Or if you don't want the whole page to be black, you could create a text box, double click the borders to get to the format settings, and set that colour to black.

what are the steps to doing this?

Go to Insert menu. Click "Text Box".

It will say "Create your drawing here.". Insert a text box in that section.

Double-click on the black outline border. Under "Fill", click the dropdown menu next to "Color:". Select Black, which is shown at top-left under "No Fill". Click "OK".

Type in the text box, and the text should appear in white.
