Lesson 1. Learning the Basics > Editing HTML Styles

Editing HTML Styles

After you've created styles, you can use the Define HTML Style dialog box to revise or delete them.

1.
Click the HTML Styles panel.

Clicking the HTML Styles panel makes it active.

If the HTML Styles panel is not visible, choose Window > HTML Styles. Make sure that no text is selected in the document window.

2.
Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the Level3 style name in the panel. Choose Edit from the drop-down menu.

The Define HTML Style dialog box opens.

TIP

You can also double-click a style name to open the Define HTML Style dialog box.

The Define HTML Style dialog box allows you to edit or delete styles. If you make a change, such as Font Attributes, and click OK, any new selections created with the style (or selections to which you apply the style) reflect the change you made.

NOTE

The change you make in a style does not affect the current text that has that formatting. If you want current text to reflect the new formatting, you have to reapply the style.

Deleting a style can be a little trickier. First, you must make sure that no text is selected in the document and that the Auto Apply checkbox in the bottom-left corner of the HTML Styles panel is not checked. Then you have to select the style you want to delete and click the trashcan icon in the bottom-right corner of the panel.

If you forget to turn off the Auto Apply option and have any text selected, you might see that text on the page change to the HTML style you selected to delete. If this happens, clear the text formatting by using the following steps.

3.
Select the formatted text.

If you are clearing a paragraph style, you can place the insertion point anywhere in the paragraph.

4.
In the HTML Styles panel, select Clear Paragraph Style or Clear Selection Style.

All formatting is removed, regardless of how it was applied.
