Using the visible styles filters

At the bottom of the Styles and Formatting window, use the drop-down menu to select a filtering criterion for the contents of the main body of the window. Normally, you will find that only a handful of styles are needed in any given document, and it makes sense to have only these styles shown.

So, at the beginning of the writing process, you may want to have access to all the available styles (by selecting All Styles). However, as the document develops, it is useful to reduce the size of the list displayed to only the styles already in use (by selecting Applied Styles). If you work on a document where you want to apply special-purpose styles only (such as those styles used in writing this user guide), select instead Custom Styles. The Hierarchical Styles view is most useful when modifying styles as it reveals which styles are linked together. This topic is discussed in more detail in Chapter 7 (Working with Styles).

If you select the Paragraph Styles view in the Styles and Formatting window, the drop-down menu contains many more filtering options so you can view, for example, only Text Styles, Special Styles, and so on.
