Updating a style from a selection

Let’s use paragraph styles as an example.

  1. Open the Styles and Formatting window.

  2. Create a new paragraph (or modify an existing paragraph) and edit all the properties you want to go into the style (such as indentation, font properties, alignment, among others).


    Make sure that there are unique properties in this paragraph. For example, if there are two different font sizes or font styles, that particular property will remain the same as before.

  3. Select the paragraph by clicking anywhere in the paragraph.

  4. In the Styles and Formatting window, select the style you want to update (single-click, not double-click) and then click on the New Style from Selection icon and select Update Style (see Figure 193).


The procedure to update another type of style (like character, page, or frame styles) is the same. Just select the item in question, select the style you want to update, and choose Update Style.
