Modify a Style

You can modify a style to change its formatting attributes at any time. All instances of the style used within the document will be updated automatically with the new formatting.

Modify a Style

It is possible to modify the built-in styles as well as those created by you in Word. When using heading styles in documents, it is recommended to modify the existing heading styles instead of creating your own. The existing heading styles are more reliable when used with Word features such as a table of contents.
