Lesson 7. Working with Styles > Creating and applying character styles

Creating and applying character styles

In the previous exercise, object styles allowed you to apply object-level formatting to graphics with a single click or a key press. Similarly, character and paragraph styles are a way to apply multiple attributes to text using a single action. Unlike paragraph styles (which are covered later in this lesson), character styles apply formatting to ranges of text smaller than a paragraph (i.e., a character, a word, or a group of words). Because of this, character styles are best used for character formatting you use over and over again when creating a document.

Creating a character style

The text for items listed on the Pisano Bistro menu was previously created in a word processing application and imported into the lesson file for you. The object of this exercise is for you to create and apply a character style to selected text in the menu, and to recognize the advantages in efficiency and consistency that character styles have to offer.
