Creating a new style from a selection

You can create a new style from the formatting of an object in the current document. For instance, you can change the formatting of a paragraph or frame until it appears as you like, and then you can turn that object’s formatting into a new style. This procedure can save time, because you do not have to create a new style as described above and remember all of the formatting settings.

  1. Change the formatting of the object (paragraph, frame, etc) to your liking.

  2. Open the Styles and Formatting window. From the icons at the top of the window, choose the type of style to create (paragraph, character, and so on).

  3. In the document, select the item to save as a style.

  4. In the Styles and Formatting window, click the New Style from Selection icon.

  5. In the Create Style dialog box, type a name for the new style. The list shows the names of existing custom styles of the selected type, if any. Click OK to save the new style.
