Chapter 5. Formatting Text > Choosing a Text Style

Choosing a Text Style

By default, paragraphs are formatted using the settings in the Normal style, but you can apply to paragraphs any of the styles from the Style list. If the style you want is not available on this list, you can create a new style.

To choose a style from the Style list:

1.
Select the characters or paragraphs to format (Figure 5.51). You can either highlight the appropriate characters or simply click in the paragraph you want to format to position the insertion point in the paragraph.

Figure 5.51. Select the characters or paragraphs to format.


2.
On the Formatting toolbar, click the arrow button next to the Style box to pull down the list of styles (Figure 5.52).

Figure 5.52. Pull down the list of styles.


3.
Choose a style name from the list of styles.

Your selection is automatically formatted according to the specified style (Figure 5.53).
