This section describes how to create, modify, apply and delete styles in Impress. If you are familiar with styles in Writer, you will find both similarities and differences in Impress. The presentation styles are similar to paragraph styles in Writer and are used in a very similar fashion. You cannot create new presentation styles but you can fully configure the existing ones. Note that, as for the Heading styles in Writer, the Outline styles are hierarchically linked, so a change in the Outline 1 will cascade through all the other Outline levels.
In Impress you will also find the graphic styles very useful. As the name suggests, graphic styles define the characteristics of a graphic object (including a text object). If, for example, you need to create a organization chart diagram in one of the slides of your presentation, you will surely want all the boxes to have consistent appearance, meaning same line style, same font type, maybe same shadow and so on. The easiest way to achieve this result with the minimum effort is to create a graphic style for the boxes and apply it to each box. The major benefit is that if later on you decide to modify, say, the background color of the boxes, all you need to do is modify the style.
