Navigating Style

Near the beginning of this chapter, I told you about the Stylist, that floating window (labeled Paragraph Styles) sitting above your document. I mentioned it then because it's there as soon as you start Writer. It made sense to explain it away, at least briefly. I'd like to give you some idea of how useful this little tool can be in formatting your documents. If you've banished the Stylist, bring it back by clicking its icon or pressing <F11>.

Whenever you start a new document, it loads with a default style. That style is actually a collection of formatting presets that define how various paragraphs will look. These include headings, lists, text boxes, and so on. All you have to do is select a paragraph, double-click on a style, and your paragraph's look—including font style and size—is magically updated. As an example of how to use this, try the following.
