If you wish to adjust the style manually, working in the regular document, you can use the
"Automatically update" to change the style so that your modifications will be applied globally.
Note that this feature does not work with the "Normal" style.
Make sure, however, that once you have finished making your changes, you uncheck the
"Automatically update" box.
Note that you can add the style to your template by clicking on the "Add to template" checkbox
in the lower left-hand corner of the Modify Style box.
Using “Clear Formatting”
Sometimes when you try to apply a style the paragraph does not react the way you expect it to.
There may be embedded formatting in the paragraph. One way to get rid of all the formatting on
a paragraph is to select the paragraph and choose “Clear Formatting” from the formatting menu.
Clear Formatting is always the first choice on the list.
Changing Styles with Search and Replace
Sometimes you have a document that uses styles that you do not want or that you want to replace
with a different style.
One way to change these styles is to use the Replace feature. You can actually search for a
particular style and replace it with another style.
Use Ctrl + H (“H” for hunt—because we’re going on a hunt for something) to bring up the find
and replace window. Click on the More button to expand the window so that you can see the
Format and Special buttons. Select the Format button.
