Any writing project becomes easier to manage once the writer understands and exploits the features of his writing tools. Larger projects like family histories take advantage of word processing features not normally used in short, everyday projects. These features - table of contents generation, indexing, footnotes and endnotes and bibliographies - take advantage of another handy feature - styles.

Styles are pre-defined collections of format settings which can bequickly assigned to selected text. Not only does this speed initialformatting, it becomes even more useful when you want to makeformat changes to an existing large document. For example, if thesection headings throughout your document have been styled usingTimes New Roman font at 24pt, bold, centered and black and nowyou want to change the color to red and move them to the left margin,all you have to do is modify the section heading style and your wordprocessor will automatically update every section heading within yourdocument. This alone makes learning to use styles worth the time, butthis is just the beginning of the benefits you’ll enjoy as you becomeproficient with styles.There are three different types of styles: paragraph, character andlist. It’s helpful to understand the difference between them so you canput them to best use within your document.
Paragraph styles
A paragraph is defined as all the text found between one paragraphbreak and another. In word processing, you create a paragraph everytime you press the Return key so your word processor sees headingsand even bulleted lists as paragraphs. Formatting applied to aparagraph is more than just font type and size. It also includesproperties like line height, indents, space before and after each

paragraph and text alignment. Thanks to styles there’s no longer aneed to add blank lines between paragraphs.
Character styles
Within the paragraph, there may be some formatting applied only toa few words. This would be a character style. Some commonexamples of character style formatting include
bold
,
italics
, underlineand strikethrough. While these styles may effect color and style of thetext, they generally don’t include layout and spacing attributes.
List styles
List styles are technically paragraph styles, but with the addition of several choices for bullet or numbering options. For this reason, wewill discuss them separately. Some word processing systems includeoutline styles which are special purpose lists.
Styles and Templates
Styles are saved in the document template. When you create adocument based on a specific template, you also receive the customstyles defined for that template. Every document you create is basedon a template. Even if you don’t select a specific template, your wordprocessor will use its default template to create your document.
