Modifying a Style
Modifying a Style
What if you decide at the end of an 80-page document that all 35
introductory paragraphs to which you assigned the Intro Para style look funny? If
you clicked the Automatically Update check box in the Create New Style
from Formatting dialog box when you created the style, all you have to do
is alter a paragraph to which you assigned the Intro Para style to alter all 35
introductory paragraphs. However, if you decided against updating styles
automatically, you can still change the introductory paragraphs throughout
your document.
Follow these steps to modify a style that isn’t updated automatically:
1. Click in any paragraph, table, or list to which you’ve assigned the
style; if you want to modify a character style, select the characters to
which you’ve assigned the style.
2. In the Styles pane or Apply Styles task pane, make sure the name of
the style you want to modify is selected.
If the right name isn’t selected, select it now in the Styles pane or Apply
Styles task pane.
3. In the Styles pane, open the style’s drop-down list and choose Modify,
as shown in Figure 3-6; in the Apply Styles task pane, click the Modify
button.
You see the Modify Style dialog box. Does the dialog box look familiar? It
is identical to the Create New Style from Formatting dialog box you used
to create the style in the first place (refer to Figure 3-5).
4. Change the settings in the Modify Styles dialog box and click OK.
The previous section in this chapter explains the settings.
