Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Work with template styles, part of Word 2016: Templates in Depth.
- [Instructor] Let me begin by saying that I believe…that all of the documents that Word power users create…should be formatted using styles.…Styles give us a lot of benefits.…Benefits like reuse, quick reformatting,…easy troubleshooting, and almost no downsides…except that you have to give up…an old way of doing things to do something…in a different way.…By using styles for formatting, what I mean is that…with a section of text selected,…rather than immediately going to make choices…from the Font group or the Paragraph group,…you will instead be working with the Styles group…and choosing styles from this drop-down.…
If you want different styles here,…if you'd like things to look differently,…you don't change that here.…You actually go to the Design tab…and perhaps change your theme,…and then choose one of the styles.…So if I were to choose this style set,…it automatically would reformat my document.…Take a look.…But once I've chosen a particular style set,…then that style set is the style set…that populates this Styles group here…
