Making Global Changes to Your Document
INSIDE OUT Show style names in Draft and Outline views
If you use Draft view or Outline view to work in your document, it’s sometimes
difficult to see which styles are in use. To overcome this difficulty, click File, Options. In the
Word Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab and scroll down to Display. Next to
Style Area Pane Width In Draft And Outline Views, enter 1".
Now you’ll see a pane along the left side of your document that shows the style for
each paragraph. To adjust the width of this pane, simply drag the line that separates it
from the document content.
Making Global Changes to Your Document
Having applied styles to the paragraphs and text in your document, you can now
experience the magic of themes and style sets.
You can select a different theme by choosing from the Themes group on the Page
Layout tab. As you point to each theme, Live Preview shows its effect on your document. To
remove theme settings and revert to settings in the template, click Themes again and
choose Reset To Theme From TemplateName Template.
To select a new style set, in the Styles group on the Home tab, click Change Styles, Style
Set. A menu of predeined style sets appears, and again Live Preview shows the result.
(Note that you can also select the Colors and Fonts theme elements from the Change Styles
menu. These are the same choices you see on the Page Layout tab.) Commands at the
bottom of the Style Set submenu restore the Quick Styles from the template or from the
current document. (Although a new document gets its styles from a template, you can
subsequently modify those styles and keep the changes only in the document, without
updating the template.)
You can also make global changes by modifying your existing styles or by applying a
different style to certain paragraphs. When you modify a style, all instances of that style in your
document are updated to use the new attributes. For more information, see “Creating a
New Style” on page 233.
