Now, it comes time to create a style that's associated with the third kind of paragraph we might encounter, which is the article description right here in our table of contents document, and by the way you can catch up with me by opening this document right here it's called Two styles in the can.indd. 'In the can' being an old film term. When they get done filming, they would put the film in the can. It doesn't have anything to do with the toilet, not that kind of can. And we find that document just in case you are curious inside of a folder, also not inside of a toilet.
Inside of a folder called 02 Graph Styles. Alright, so I have gone ahead and clicked inside of this descriptive paragraph with my Type tool. Already done that and now in this exercise, we are going to do all that stuff that we did in the previous exercises in one step. One big step to create the style and here is what I want you to do. So we will start off by pressing the Alt key, Option key on the Mac, and clicking on this little page icon. So an Alt+Click or an Option+Click forces to display the dialog box. We will name the style Description. I am not going to bother with the keyboard shortcut, but I am going to make sure that Apply Style to Selection is turned on.
I am also going to make sure that my Preview checkbox is turned on. I am going to base this style on Byline, so that we have the sequence, right. Byline is based on Page No.& Title and then this new style Description is going to be based on Byline. So we have sort of a domino effect associated with our styles here. Go ahead and turn on Byline. Check out the text. Make sure it didn't switch. It didn't shift on us. That's because we don't have any weird stuff going on that's going to adversely effect this text. So that's nice and the next thing I am going to do, the final thing I should say that I am going to do is change next style to Page No.
& Title. This option which we haven't changed in the past allows us to say, okay after Description comes a style called Page No. & Title. In other words, it goes Page No. & Title, Byline, Description back to Page No. & Title, Byline, Description and so on and so on and so on. So we are creating this Cascading effect, which is going to help us out like I cannot even tell you. So make sure to set next style to Page No. & Title like so, and then click OK and the deed is done. You now have a Description style, a new Description style that is associated with this text right there.
In the next exercise, I am going to show you how to assign next titles to the other styles so that we have a close loop of repeating styles, which we will exploit like crazy. It's really something to be hold, so stick with me.
