Understanding Styles

A style is basically a collection of formatting commands, such as font type, size, typestyle, and so on, that you put together and save with a name. The next time you want to apply those commands to some text, you can use the style instead of having to repeat all the commands. Obviously, applying a style is much faster than repeating a series of steps to generate the proper format.

But that isn’t the only reason you want to use styles. The real benefit occurs when you start fine-tuning the format. Say you decide not to italicize your headings. If you had italicized the headings by selecting the text and applying italics, you would have to go back to each heading and remove the italics code. Instead, you can create a heading style so that all you have to do is remove the italics from the style and voilà! Every heading is automatically updated to reflect the new formatting in the style.
