In this exercise, I am going to show you a different way to create a Paragraph Style that actually saves us some monkeying around. Now I have still got my Type tool active. I'm going to go ahead and click inside of the byline text that says, Marjorie Kaminsky there. And by the way, I am working inside of a catch-up document if you are just joining me. That's called One style down (2 2 go) because we have two more styles we want to create and this document is found inside of the 02 Graph Styles folder. Now with the blinking insertion marker located somewhere inside of this byline, I want you this time, instead of clicking on the page icon to Create a New Style, which doesn't link the new style to the byline and also doesn't allow you to name the style. Instead, what I want you to do is press the Alt key or the Option key on the Mac and click that same icon.
Because you have Alt or Option down, you force the display of the new Paragraph Style palette and you can go ahead and say, alright, you know what? I want to go ahead and name this style 'Byline.' So I can name it as I am creating it. I can also turn on this checkbox right here. Very important. Go ahead and turn on this checkbox that says Apply Style to Selection and then click OK. And just like that you have not only made the style, you've also named the style and associated it with that byline in one operation.
In the next exercise, I'm going to show you how to base one style on another and address the consequences.
