Applying Styles to Text and Paragraphs
To strip a paragraph or text of its style and give it the generic Normal style,
select it and choose Clear Formatting in the Styles gallery or Clear All at the
top of the Styles pane.
Keyboard shortcuts for applying styles
A handful of keyboard shortcuts can be very
handy when applying paragraph styles:
✓ Normal: Ctrl+Shift+N
✓ Heading 1: Ctrl+Alt+1
✓ Heading 2: Ctrl+Alt+2
✓ Heading 3: Ctrl+Alt+3
✓ Next higher heading: Alt+Shift+ ←
✓ Next lower heading: Alt+Shift+ →
You can assign keyboard shortcuts to styles.
Book IX, Chapter 1 explains how.
