Styles allow you to accurately and consistently format content in your InDesign layouts with amazing power and ease. Throughout this course, I'll break down styles and help you to understand the hows and whys of styles, how they're used, and why you should use them, and the benefits that you'll gain by doing so. We'll cover all the different types of styles available in InDesign.

Topics include paragraph styles, character styles, nested styles, object styles, and table styles. You'll learn how to use all of these different styles to make InDesign do the work for you, helping you to work faster and more efficiently. If you create content that requires consistent formatting, styles are for you. You'll walk away from this course with a solid understanding of how to use styles in your day-to-day projects. I'm proud to be the author of this course, and proud of the training that I've helped produce.
