Sometimes as you design, you will decide you want to make a change for the whole book. Maybe you changed your mind about the font you want to use, or you want to make the size consistent across all the pages. Fortunately, you can make a Global Change and it's not very hard. When you select an element in a page, simply make the adjustments that you want. Maybe I decided to go ahead and take this down just a little bit to 15-point. Well, if I click Change Everywhere, it is going to go through and find all instances of this type of text in use in the book.
So now, when we get to another page that has a caption like that, you are going to see that it switched it to 15-point text. This is good because now I have consistency from one page to the next. One of the most rookie mistakes you can make is constantly changing fonts or point sizes as you go from page to page. You want consistency and style, and this makes it really easy to do so.
