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

Creating and applying paragraph styles

Although they’re used for the same general purpose (to speed up your workflow and provide consistency throughout your InDesign document), paragraph styles are more comprehensive than object styles or character styles. This is because paragraph styles incorporate all elements of text formatting. Paragraph styles often include character attributes like font, size, style, and color, combined with paragraph attributes like indents, alignment, tabs, and hyphenation. They also differ from character styles in that they are applied to entire paragraphs at once, not just to selected characters.

Creating a paragraph style

In this exercise you’ll apply additional text formatting to your document by creating and applying a paragraph style to selected paragraphs that have already been placed in the menu.
