In addition to using the predefined styles provided by OOo, you can add new custom (user-defined) styles. In
Chapter 6, two methods were given for creating a new style: the drag-and-drop approach and the New Style from Selection icon in the Styles and Formatting window.
These methods are very convenient because it is possible to immediately check the visual effects that the style produces before creating it. However, they may require you to access several different menus, and you have a somewhat reduced amount of control on style (particularly when it comes to organizing them). The method described in this chapter, therefore, concerns only the use of the Style dialog box.
