Styles

Think of styles as containers holding most character and paragraph attributes. These containers can be applied to any paragraph with a single click.

And that's the true power of styles: being able to format a paragraph (or several paragraphs) with many different character and paragraph formats at once.

Think of how you typically apply formatting to paragraphs: first, the paragraph is selected. Then, each of the attributes is selected and modified in turn, until all the changes are complete. With a few changes, such as font, size, leading, tracking, and alignment, that can take up to a minute or more. Maybe that doesn't sound like much time-until you consider that formatting is almost a continuous procedure in PageMaker.

Styles can also automate your work in PageMaker, taking you from style to style automatically (via the handy Next Style function).

Styles can be created, edited, deleted, and applied within the Styles palette (Figure 1), accessed from the Window menu, or by pressing Ctrl+B.The following steps require that you have the Styles palette visible. You can display the Styles palette by pressing Ctrl+B, or by choosing Window├ŹShow Style.
To define a new style:
1. Highlight the text you wish to use as a style.
2. Click the New Style button on the Styles palette (Figure 2).This will display the Style Options dialog box (Figure 3).
3. Enter a name for the new style.Be as descriptive as you can.
4. Click the OK button.
The new style will be added to the Styles palette and can be applied as shown below.

To apply a style:


1. Place your cursor in the paragraph to which you wish to apply the style.You can select text in several paragraphs to change all those paragraphs at once.
2. Click the name of the style in the Styles palette (Figure 4).
The selected paragraphs will change to that style.
The super-fast amazing style creationYou can use the Control palette to create styles quickly, even if you don't have the Styles palette showing. The paragraph display of the Control palette lists the current style-by typing over that style, you can name a new style almost instantly. Here's how it works:

To quickly create a new style:
1. Select some text that is representative of the style you wish to create.
2. Display the paragraph portion of the Control palette (Figure 5).
3. Highlight the style name in the Control palette (Figure 6).You can do this by double-clicking the style name or clicking to the left of the text field.
4. Type in a new name for the style you wish to create, and press Enter.A dialog box appears, asking if you're sure you want to create a new style (Figure 7).
5. Click the OK button.
The new style is created.
To modify an existing style:
1. Double-click on the style (in the Styles palette) that you wish to modify (Figure 8).The Style Options dialog box appears (Figure 9).
2. Click one of the buttons along the right side of the Style Options dialog box.
The corresponding dialog box will appear. For instance, clicking the Char button opens the Character Attributes dialog box, with settings for that style.
3. Make your changes and click OK.
This returns you to the Style Options dialog box.4. Click the OK button.Any uses of that style will be updated throughout the document.This is truly one of the most powerful capabilities of styles: when you make a change to the style, all the text tagged with that style is changed as well.
