Keeping formatting when changing styles

Recommended Posts

Okay, if I change the style of a paragraph, then I seem to lose any extra formatting that I changed inside it. It does make sense, but it means I have to go through the whole book and reapply those extra italics again. Is there any way around this?

 

Thanks in advance ... :-)

Hi Fred,

 

Okay, if I change the style of a paragraph, then I seem to lose any extra formatting that I changed inside it. It does make sense, but it means I have to go through the whole book and reapply those extra italics again. Is there any way around this?

Yes, there is a way around having to reformat the whole book by hand. :)

 

Let's say you want to change the style of your section text but want to preserve any bolded, italicized, or underlined text. To do this, you would do the following:

 

1) Select a paragraph that has the Section Text style but doesn't have any bold, italicized or underlined text.

 

2) Make the desired formatting changes.

 

3) Choose Format > Style > Redefine Style From Selection.

 

All paragraphs having the Section Text style will be updated, but will retain any bolded/italicized/underlined formatting.
