Word: Styles

Part of Microsoft Word

Word Word: StylesMicrosoft Word: Styles


Using a wordprocessor to format a document is quite easy until you start dealing with different fonts and paragraph formats.  It gets even more frustrating when dealing with large documents.

Why does Word formatting suddenly change my document?

When I started using Microsoft Word I was perplexed about why when deleting one line it could radically change the look of the paragraph, font and general layout.  It turns out that I needed some Style!

“Styles” in Microsoft Word control just about everything you want to do with a document.  Put bluntly, if you don’t uses styles you’re not using Microsoft Word correctly.

Following this video will provide you with the basic understanding of style fundamentals.  With this knowledge, I guarantee you will start enjoying using it rather than feeling paranoid and thinking “what is it going to do to wreck my document this time!”.

I strongly urge you to watch this video as the techniques discussed here have a far-ranging impact on modern-day computing.  Styles are used in word processors and are the fundamental building blocks of web design!

It’s amazing that lots of people don’t know about them or just ignore them.  Every document I write regardless of size uses “styles” whether I like it or not.  So its best to get to grips with them otherwise you will be a slave to style rather than being a style guru!

    Even though I’ve been using word for years I never figured out how the styles work. Thank you for a very clear explanation.

    They changed it to =rand(x,y). x=number of paragraphs y=number of sentences in each paragraph.

    Hi,

    I’m trying to use Styles to label Figures. I was able to do it with Styles for the first figure I inserted, but when I inserted another figure later in the document, it wouldn’t even give me the choice to select my “Figure Style”. What am I doing incorrectly?
