Editing Styles

You can also edit or modify the attributes found in any of your styles or the default styles in the document. You edit styles using the Styles and Formatting task pane. Remember that when you edit a style, all the text to which the style was applied reflects the new text and paragraph attributes of your edited style.

To edit a style, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Styles and Formatting task pane.

  2. Under Pick Formatting to Apply , select the style you want to edit and place the mouse pointer on it until you see the box outline and down arrow appear. Then, click the down arrow and press Modify . The Modify Style dialog box appears as shown in Figure 10.3.

    Figure 10.3. The Modify Style dialog box allows you to edit the name of a style and modify all the attributes found in the style.
