Chapter 5. Formatting a Document with Word > Creating and Modifying Styles

Creating and Modifying Styles

Word provides a variety of styles to choose from. But sometimes you need to create a new style or modify an existing one to get the exact look you want. When you create a new style, specify if it applies to paragraphs or characters, and give the style a short, descriptive name that describes its purpose so you and others recall when to use that style. A paragraph style is a group of format settings that can be applied only to all of the text within a paragraph (even if it is a one-line paragraph), while a character style is a group of format settings that is applied to any block of text at the user's discretion. To modify a style, adjust the formatting settings of an existing style.
