Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using and creating styles, part of Google Docs Essential Training.
- I've added a bit more to my document,…that is, just one more paragraph,…and now I'm ready to apply some styles to it.…The Style Menu is on the left-hand side,…next to the Font Selection.…Styles are pre-set to be formatted…in a very specific way.…So in one click, you can change…many font properties at once,…like making it bold, or italicized,…or a different size completely.…The Style Normal text is what you'll use…as the default body style for your document.…
This is regular paragraph text.…I'm going to show you how to change this in a few minutes,…but it's important to remember…that you do want to keep your document…readable for other people, so keep that in mind…when you're setting font properties.…The styles Title, Headings 1, 2, and 3…are for labelling different areas…of your document so that they stand out.…Google Docs also uses Header styles…to build the Table of Contents,…which I'll show you how to do in a later video.…To set text to a particular style, you first need…to highlight the batch of text…that you want to change.…
