Part 5: Styles > Paragraph Styles

Chapter 54. Paragraph Styles

If your workflow depends heavily on the time-saving benefits of style sheets, you’ll find that InDesign styles meet or beat the capabilities of the style sheets in QuarkXPress. InDesign splits the lists of styles for paragraphs and characters (described in the next chapter) into separate Paragraph Styles and Character Styles palettes, while QuarkXPress keeps both lists in a single Style Sheets palette. Be careful not to confuse InDesign’s Paragraph Styles and Character Styles palettes with its Paragraph and Character palettes; the latter pair only apply local formatting that isn’t attached to a style.

To open the Paragraph Styles palette, choose Paragraph Styles from the Type menu or press its keyboard shortcut (F11). Unlike XPress, empty style palettes don’t have any default style sheets such as Normal, just the No Style option that removes the style tag. If you find yourself looking for the commands that would be on the context menu for the Style Sheets palette in XPress, you’ll find them in InDesign’s Paragraph Styles palette’s flyout menu.
