Document Formats
One advantage of using styles to format text is that you easily can change the formats
of styles and themes in your document to give it a different or new look. Recall that a style
is a named group of formatting characteristics and a theme is a set of unifi ed formats for
fonts, colors, and graphics. In Word, you can change the style set, theme colors, and
theme fonts.
• The predefi ned styles in the Styles gallery, such as Heading 1 and Heading 2, each
known as a Quick Style , are part of a style set. A style set consists of a group of
frequently used styles formatted so they look pleasing when used together. When
you change the style set, formats assigned to each Quick Style also change.
