Chapter 6. Formatting in Microsoft Word > Applying Styles and Templates

Applying Styles and Templates

All the formatting talk in this chapter has shown you how to control the look and feel of the text in your document. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to save all these settings for future use? That’s what styles allow you to do. A style in Word is a preset format you apply to text in your document. By default, Word documents have the Normal template attached (this template includes the default styles for Heading 1, Heading 2, and so on). But you also can choose different styles, modify existing styles, or create your own styles, based on all the formatting changes you’ve learned to make in this chapter. And once you’ve created those styles, you may want to save them in your own template or add them to a template you already use.

At the far left end of the Formatting toolbar, you see a tool that looks like a double-A. This is the tool that displays the Styles And Formatting task pane (shown in Figure 6-10). It is here that you will do much of your work with styles.
