If you are filling in info in a table in Word for example, and you have your headings across the top in bold and italics, how do you deselect those options when you fill in the data ? I know you can highlight the text when you are finished typing to deselect bold and italics, but is there another way before you start entering the data ?

You can highlight the rest of the empty table and change those options before typing the text.

How did you get the bold and italics on in the first place? It sounds like you may have selected the entire table, and then set the entire table bold and italics.

Next time don't do that! :)
After you place a table in your document, and if you just want the top row being bold and italics, just select that row (not the entire table) and press ^I then ^B (Ctrl+I then Ctrl+B) to set just that selected area to be bold and italics.

If you want to ensure your existing table does not have any bold or italics set, except for just your top row (or wherever) just select the entire table (quick way, once in a table, just press ^5, the 5 on the keypad, not the main part of the keyboard) then press ^I and ^B once or twice (depends upon if the first cell has that item on as to how many times needed to get all the selected portion in concert).

Then once you have the entire table now NOT italics and NOT bold, just then select the top row, and press ^I and ^B once.

Or better yet, set up Styles for Table Head and Table Cell. Then you will always be consistent.
