Chapter 6. Streamlining Your Formatting ... > What Styles Are and How They Work

What Styles Are and How They Work

In Word, a style is a series of formats that can be applied all at once to one or more paragraphs, or one or more characters. Rather than apply formats one at a time by clicking toolbar buttons or using keyboard shortcuts or dialog boxes, you choose a style, and Word automatically applies all the formatting for you. If you want or need to change the appearance of your entire document, all you have to do is change the styles.

How Styles and Templates Work Together

Styles are intimately linked to another Word feature, templates. As you'll learn in Chapter 7, templates are patterns for your documents, which can include many features, including styles, boilerplate text, manually formatted text, graphics, and custom automation tools such as macros and special toolbars.
