The default . dotx i les contain no text or other formatting, but only style information for dozens of built-in styles. To
see a list of these styles, double-click one of the . dotx i les in a folder window to open a blank document based on
it in Word. Display the Styles pane, and then display all styles as described later in this chapter.
Changing your mind
If you’ve been experimenting with Style Sets but now want to revert to the styles of the
document’s underlying template, in most cases you can. Click the Design tab, and in the
Document Formatting group, click the More button to open the Style Set gallery. Click
Reset to Default Style Set near the bottom of the gallery to reset the styles immediately.
You have control over numerous other aspects of how and where styles appear and behave
in Word. Cleaning up or expanding the style listings can make you much more efﬁ cient
when you’re taking on the task of formatting your document. This section covers the most
important style management features you need to know about.
Choosing which styles to display in the Styles pane
By default, the Styles pane displays a list of Recommended styles. You can change and
prioritize the recommended styles that appear as described shortly in the “Recommended
styles” section. But you can instead choose to display just in use styles (used throughout
your documents), styles used in the current document, or all styles in the template. The
last choice is great when you can’t ﬁ nd the type of style you need. For example, when you
display all styles, the Styles pane includes nine heading styles instead of the normal three.
To choose the styles that appear in the Styles pane for the current document:
1. Display the Styles pane if needed. To do so, click the launcher in the Styles group
or press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S.
2. Click the Options link in the lower-right corner.
3. Open the Select styles to show list (Figure 7.15), and click a choice.
4. Click OK.
