103. Create a Paragraph Style

 < Day Day Up > 

You can create your own styles, which are then added to the Stylist for easy access. Styles can quickly be created by formatting text or paragraphs and then creating a new style based on the current formatting of selected text or paragraphs.

Paragraph styles, which are often the most useful style to create, can contain both font attributes and paragraph attributes such as alignment. So, you can create your own heading styles or special paragraph styles and then apply them as needed.

Format Paragraph

Format a paragraph with character and paragraph formatting attributes as needed.

Create New Paragraph Style

Name Style

Type a name for the style in the Create Style dialog box; then click OK. The new style appears in the Stylist's style list. You can now assign the style to other paragraphs as needed.

Open Paragraph Style Dialog

You can edit the various formatting options for a style that you have created. Right-click on the style in the Stylist's style list and select Modify. The Paragraph Style dialog box opens.

Edit Style Settings

Use the various tabs in the Paragraph Style dialog box to change the formatting options for the style. After you have completed your changes, click OK. You can now assign the edited style to text in the document.


You can also update a style by changing the formatting on a paragraph that has been assigned the style. Then in the Stylist, select the Update Style button in the upper right of the Stylist window.
