Applying styles using the Styles pane
Applying styles using the Styles pane
Word 2013 continues to offer the Styles pane (or task pane), which you can use to view
even more styles than appear in the Style gallery, and which offers additional commands
for working with styles. You can either click the dialog box launcher in the lower-right
corner of the Styles group of the Home tab or press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S to open the Styles
pane, shown in Figure 7.5. The pane by default lists only Recommended styles, and the

chapter to learn more about what they are and how to work with them.

This method doesn’t enable you to get a Live Preview of the style before you apply it, but
you can get information about a style prior to applying it in the Styles pane. You can do
