Did you know...You can modify the styles to match APA formatting (or any formatting you want for that matter).
If you are marking your headings with styles and the styles provided by Microsoft are not what you want, you can modify those styles for just that document or make the changes default for all future documents.

- Right click on the Heading 1 style in the style group on the Home Ribbon
