Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Updating all styled text in one operation, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie I'll show you how to update…the definition of a paragraph style,…and in doing so, update all of the text…that's linked to that style as well,…and you can do so by modifying…the formatting of a single word.…Now, in the case of our text, notice that…both the headline and the body copy are set…to a Sans Serif font.…Now you can go that route if you want to,…but that doesn't tend to be the way things work.…You typically reserve Sans Serifs for headlines…and display texts and things like folios slash…page numbers, where as for the text that actually gets read,…the small text inside the document,…you typically work with a serifed font instead.…
So notice that my type tool is still active,…so I'll just go ahead and click inside this second paragraph…in order to position my blinking insertion marker,…and then I'll double-click in order…to select an entire word, "materials",…and I'm going to go ahead and zoom in on that word as well,…so that it's centered on-screen,…and then I'll go up to my control panel…
