Using the next style option to create a style sequence.
- [Lecturer] If your paragraphs come…in a predictable sequence you can use sequential styles…to apply formats to multiple paragraphs…with a single click.…I have this example from a cookbook…and the recipe style is always followed…by the serving information,…which is always followed by a description,…which is always followed by the ingredients,…and the ingredients are always followed…by a list of instructions.…So, you can see that I've named my paragraph styles…to reflect the order of those styles…and then if we'd just take a quick look…at their definition, I'm using this property, Next Style,…and this is what makes this work.…
So for the 01 style, the Next Style is 02…and for 02 the next style is 03, et cetera.…So, now to apply all those styles in one go…I can click into the text, Command + A to select it all,…and I come and right-click on the first style…in the sequence and choose Apply then Next Style.…If I also wanted to remove any overwrite…I could choose this second option…but there aren't any in this case.…
