Deleting style sheets in QuarkXPress can be useful in a number of situations. One is if you just want to clean up your document and get rid of the old style sheets that you are not using, and the other is actually to replace a style sheet with another style sheet. Let me show you what I mean. The easiest way to remove style sheets that are not being used in your document is to go to the Edit menu and choose Style Sheets. There at the pop-up from the top you can choose from either All Style Sheets, Paragraph, Character, Style Sheets In Use, or Style Sheets Not Used, hey! So there we're seeing that I've never used these two style sheets.
I can click to select one or more, and hit Delete and they'll just be removed from my document right away. But let's say I want to delete a style sheet and replace it with another one that I've still got in my document. That's really easy. You can do it here. Again, just choose one of the style sheets and click Delete. It will then prompt you for a style sheet you want to replace it with, or no style at all. If you select No Style, it will delete the style sheet but keep the formatting of the paragraphs that are using it exactly the way they are.
They just don't have a style sheet assigned to them. But rather than do that here, I'm going to perform a similar thing in the Style Sheets palette. I'm going to cancel out of here. I currently have my Item tool selected, so if I double-click a Text Box, I'll be able to select some text within it, and see that it's got the Stories style sheet assigned to it. Now if I delete the Stories style sheet, either by Ctrl or right-clicking on it and choosing Delete, or clicking on the Trashcan icon up here, or clicking on the palette menu here and choosing Delete, it will prompt me with a style sheet to replace it with.
If I choose something else like this and click OK, watch what happens to all the text in my document. All the text that was formerly tagged with the Stories style sheet is now tagged with Closet Program Description as their style sheet. In the next and final movie on style sheets, I'm going to cover how to append style sheets from another document and how to copy them over from another document as well.
