Character Styles

You can use InDesign’s character styles to create, save, and apply a group of style attributes to a few selected words or characters (as opposed to an entire paragraph, which occurs when using paragraph styles). Creating, applying, and editing character styles generally works the same way as paragraph styles do, except they only apply to selected portions of text, so not all of the same attributes are available. Display the Character Styles palette using the command of the same name on the Type menu, or press Shift-F11.

InDesign only changes attributes that are specifically identified within a character style when it is applied. Leaving an attribute blank in the Character Styles palette will cause InDesign to not change that attribute of the text when the character style is used (see Figure 26-3).
