Steps

  1. 1
    First thing we need to do is open the Apply Styles task panel
    .
    There are two ways to do this with slightly different results. The first way, using Hotkeys to carry out these commands, because Hotkeys are a way of speeding up our work and making the process a lot quicker, is to use Ctrl Shift S. As you can see the Apply Styles box has emerged.

    Here you can select from a variety of paragraph styles
    .
    One way to do this is to select the text before we open the box using, we can do that using another Hotkey which is shift and the direction arrows. If I hold down I can select this paragraph and then open in the Apply Styles task panel with Ctrl Shift S.

    Now we can change the paragraph style to Emphasis, for example
    .
    Now it's more emphatic, even though it has somehow reduced it.

    The other way is to open another Styles task panel using Alt Ctrl Shift S
    .
    As you can see here, on the right side of the screen, we've opened up the styles box. It's very similar, but it doesn't contain all of the styles that the other box contains, so this is a way of opening up a reduced section of styles. It still follows the same pattern, you can select headings, like Heading 1 for example, or Heading 2, or Heading 3, and back to Subtle.

    We can also, of course, change the color of the paragraph
    .
    If we highlight the paragraph by double clicking, we can change the color to black. We can close the Styles task panel.

    We can see at the top is the Styles Panel
    .
    If we want to quickly activate Heading 1, we can do that with another Hotkey command, which is Alt Ctrl 1. As you can see the text has changed and in the font box we've changed to Heading 1 font, and over here in the Styles Box we've selected Heading 1.

    If we press enter we can press Alt Ctrl 3 to change to Heading 3.
