Suppose that you want to apply the same area fill, line thickness and border to a set of objects. This repetitive process can be greatly simplified by the use of styles. Styles allow you to define a formatting template (a style) and then to apply that style to multiple objects. For more about styles, see Chapter 6 (Introduction to Styles) in the Writer Guide.
Creating a new style
Select an object and customize the area fill and border. When you are satisfied, click on the icon on the Styles and Formatting window. This defines a new style based on the selected object. Type a name for the new style and click OK.
Applying a style
Once the new style is defined, you can apply it to other objects. Select another object and double-click on the style name you defined. The new object will acquire the area fill and line properties of that style.
|What happens if I modify a style after it has been applied? Then every object with that style is updated automatically!|
