Navigating Style

With Writer open, click Format on the menu bar, and then select Styles and Formatting; a window labeled Styles and Formatting will appear, floating above your document. Pressing F11 will also bring up the stylist. Clicking the x in the corner of the window will banish it. 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>.

Great Time-Saving Tip

Here's a good trick you might want to keep in mind if you start using styles in a big way. Click on the stylist's title bar with your left mouse button and slowly drag the stylist window over to the right edge (or the left edge) of your Writer window. As the stylist starts to go beyond the edge of the Writer window, you should see a gray vertical outline appear under the stylist. Release the mouse button and the stylist will dock into the main writer Window (Figure 13-11).

Figure 13-11. Styles make paragraph formatting easy and consistent. Note that the stylist is docked on the right.
