Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading paragraph and character styles, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Time to fast track this process; we are going to load the styles from the…finished version of the document. And in a real world situation, if you were…working on a feature article for a magazine, the styles are likely to already…be created and you wouldn't be reinventing the wheel every time you created a…new feature article for that publication.…So this dummy text over here has now served its purpose. I am going to keep the…text frame, and I am going to select all of that text and delete it. The next…thing I am going to do is come to my Paragraph Styles panel and from the panel…menu I am going to choose Load All Text Styles. That's going to bring in the…character styles, as well as, the paragraph styles.…
And then I need to navigate to the folder containing the finished version and…it's in the exercise files in the SF_ layout_finished folder and that's the name of it. …Now when I Click Open, we have on the left a list of all of the styles…in the Incoming document and on the right a list of any Conflicts with styles…

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.
