Review answers

1Object styles save time by letting you keep a group of formatting attributes together that you can quickly apply to images. If you need to update the formatting, you don’t have to change each image formatted with the style individually. Instead, you can simply modify the style.
2The two prerequisites for using nested styles are that you have first created a character style, and that you then have built a paragraph style in which to nest it.
3There are two ways to update object, character, or paragraph styles in InDesign. The first is simply to open the style itself and make changes to the formatting options. The other is to use local formatting to change an instance, and then redefine the style based on that instance.
4Importing styles is easy. Simply choose Load All Styles from the Object, Character, or Paragraph palette menus and locate the InDesign document from which you want to load them. The styles are then loaded into the respective palette(s) and are immediately available for use inside your document.
