Learn how to use the Break Link to Style option and when to do so.
- [Instructor] This movie is about…the break link to style option.…This removes the style from a paragraph,…but retains the formats of that paragraph.…It's useful if you have text with local formatting…or overrides that you don't want to be affected…by an edit to the parent style.…So in this example I have these three text frames…that are all actually in the body style with overrides.…If I come and make a change to the body style,…by right-clicking on the style name,…and let's do something drastic like split the column,…then you'll see that that has an undesired knock-on effect…to all of the paragraphs that are based on that.…
So I'm going to undo that and with these frames selected,…I'm going to come to the paragraph styles panel menu…and choose break link to style.…Now the designation is no styles.…So any change I make to the body style…will not affect these paragraphs.…A better option might be to define each of these…as paragraph styles in their own right.…But since they are one of total treatments,…this break link to style option is a viable one.…
