Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Modify styles automatically, part of Word 2016: Styles in Depth.
- By default, modifying a style…is either done in the dialog box,…or it's a two step process.…For example, if I select this text…formatted as a heading one and I change its color,…nothing else is changed.…Unless I then right-click and choose to update heading one,…and, in that case, I've now propagated that change…to all of the other heading ones in my document.…But it doesn't have to be this way.…I have the ability for every style, other than normal,…to have it automatically update if I change it.…
