Chapter 8. Using Styles for Consistency > Creating Your Own Styles

Creating Your Own Styles

The heading styles are convenient, but they have limited use, so you’ll probably want to start creating your own styles right away. You’ve already seen how to create styles from text that you have already formatted. When you’re ready, you can create your own styles—either from scratch or based on another style. The next time you start a new project, take a few minutes and create the styles that you will need. Then you can apply the styles as you generate the content.

Tip

Word keeps track of both the available styles and the formatting that you’ve used in the document and saves this information in the Styles and Formatting task pane.

You can reapply this formatting to selected text without creating a style. To do so, simply select the text, display the task pane, and select the formatting description in the list. If you don’t see any format descriptions, make sure Available Formatting or Formatting in Use is selected in the Show list at the bottom of the task pane.
