Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying styles, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Now that we have stripped our text of any unwanted formats, we can apply the…styles to our text, the styles that we loaded in a previous movie.…So let's have our Paragraph Styles panel open, and I am going to begin by…inserting my cursor into the main article, selecting all, and applying the body…style to everything, since the vast majority of the text is going to be in the…body style. And then I am going to zoom in, Command+Spacebar or Ctrl+Spacebar,…Click and drag, and this opening text here, I am going to cut from the story…itself, Command+X or Ctrl+X, zoom out, scroll to the previous page, and for…now, I am just going to put it in there.…

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
