Modifying a Style
You can change the appearance of a style, including its line spacing, font, color, alignment… just about anything! If you change a style, that change will affect all text in your document in that style.
- On the Home Ribbon, in the Styles Group, right-click on the style you want to change, and select Modify. If you don’t see the style you want to change, click on the Expand icon to see a more complete list.
- In the Modify Style dialog box, you can make any change you want to the style.
- Click on the Format button in the bottom-left corner of the dialog box for even more options such as font, paragraph, numbering, etc.
