Lesson 7. Page Layout and Printing > Working with Text Styles

Working with Text Styles

When you look at the text in your document, you probably think about each paragraph as being some type of text. For example, in this document you have a headline (Action Photos), a tag line, an introductory paragraph, subheads, and body text. Each type of paragraph may have different formatting in your design.

Text styles are a means of storing the formatting attributes for each type of paragraph, making it easy to apply those attributes to other paragraphs in your document. Using text styles ensures that similar paragraphs are formatted exactly the same. You don’t have to remember whether you used 12-point text or 11-point text for the body text. You simply save the text style and then apply it to other paragraphs with a single click. You’ll appreciate text styles even more when you change your mind about your formatting. You can edit the style, and all of the text with that style applied will be reformatted automatically.
