Modifying a Style

You can change the formatting associated with any paragraph or character style—it can be a style you define or one of Word's predefined styles. When you do so, all text in the document that has the style assigned is modified to reflect the new formatting. Here's how:

  1. Click Format, Style to open the Style dialog box (see Figure 14.4).

  2. Click the List drop-down arrow and select which styles you want to be displayed in the Styles list:

    • All Styles All styles defined in the current document.

    • Styles in Use Styles that have been assigned to text in the current document.

    • User Defined Styles All user-defined styles in the current document (as opposed to those styles provided by Word).

  3. In the Styles list, click the name of the style you want to modify.

  4. Click the Modify button. The Modify Style dialog box appears, which looks the same as the New Style dialog box (refer to Figure 14.3).

  5. In this dialog box, specify the style's new format specifications (as described earlier) for creating a new style.

  6. Click OK to return to the Style dialog box, then click Close.

    Figure 14.4. Use the Style dialog box to modify an existing style.
