Font Object (Publisher)
Contains font attributes (font name, font size, color, and so on) for an object.
Use the Font property to return the Font object. The following instruction applies bold formatting to the selection.
Sub BoldText() Selection.TextRange.Font.Bold = True End Sub
The following example formats the first paragraph in the active publication as 24-point Arial and italic.
Sub FormatText() Dim txtRange As TextRange Set txtRange = ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange With txtRange.Font .Bold = True .Name = "Arial" .Size = 24 End With End Sub
The following example changes the formatting of the Heading 2 style in the active publication to Arial and bold.
Sub FormatStyle() With ActiveDocument.TextStyles("Normal").Font .Name = "Tahoma" .Italic = True .Size = 15 End With End Sub
You can also duplicate a Font object by using the Duplicate property. The following example creates a new character style with the character formatting from the selection in addition to italic formatting. The formatting of the selection is not changed.
Sub DuplicateFont() Dim fntNew As Font Set fntNew = Selection.TextRange.Font.Duplicate fntNew.Italic = True ActiveDocument.TextStyles.Add(StyleName:="Italics").Font = fntNew End Sub
