To Update a Style to Match a Selection
To ensure that all paragraphs in the paper will be double-spaced and do not have space after the paragraphs,
you want the Normal style to include the line and paragraph spacing changes made in the previous two sets of steps.
You can update a style to rel ect the settings of the location of the insertion point or selected text. Because no text
has yet been typed in the research paper, you do not need to select text prior to updating the Normal style. The
following steps update the Normal style.
