Creating and Modifying Styles
Creating and Modifying Styles
With all the different styles and style sets Word 2010 offers, you might never need to create
unique styles of your own. But if you want to create a specific effect—suppose, for example,
that you want to match the font and style in other documents your company has
produced—you can create your own styles to it the format you’re envisioning.
Many complex documents, such as the manuscript used to create this topic, might use a
set of styles to format specific document components. For example, there are three primary
styles used for an Inside Out tip: a style for the title, a style for the text in the tip, and a style
to denote the end of the tip. These types of situations call for creating custom styles. This
section covers creating new styles and explains how to modify styles by using the Modify
Style dialog box.
One of the easiest ways to create a style is to format existing text and then define a style
based on the formatted text. Here are the steps to get you started:
1. Begin by formatting the text you want to save as a style.
2. Click the dialog launcher in the Styles group to display the Styles pane.
3. Click the New Style button. The Create New Style from Formatting dialog box
appears (see Figure 12-5).
Figure 12-5 Select settings for the new style in the Create New Style From Formatting
dialog box.
