Chapter 13. Style Sheets > Creating and applying style sheets

Creating and applying style sheets

A style sheet is a set of paragraph or character formatting specifications. Whatever text is highlighted when you click a style sheet on the Style Sheets palette (or execute its equivalent shortcut) is formatted instantly. But style sheets aren't used just for the initial formatting; they're also used for editing. If you modify a style sheet, all the text with which it is associated will update instantly. Each project can contain up to 1,000 style sheets, and they are available to all layouts within the project.


Using style sheets will relieve you from zillions of hours of tedious styling and restyling, freeing you to concentrate on more exciting tasks. And here's another benefit: When you use style sheets, you can rest assured that your typography is consistent, whether you're working on a small bro chure or a huge, multifile book. Every single character in this book was styled via a style sheet. Enough said?
