SUMMARY

You can rename a style either by replacing the current name or by adding extra names. If you apply styles with the keyboard, you may want to give each style a short name in addition to its long name.

If you plan to combine style sheets, first rename styles to give them unique names. If you have duplicate names in the combined style sheets, the formatting instructions of the incoming style with the same name will replace those in the current style sheet.

When you rename automatic styles, you can add only names; you cannot replace the original name.

To rename a style, do the following:

  1. From the Format menu, choose Define Styles.
  2. Select the style you want to rename from the list box.
  3. In the Style box, type the new name. If you want to add another name, type a comma (or semicolon for a system set up for a non-English language), after the first name; then, type the next name.
  4. Click OK to accept the new name, close the dialog box, and apply it to the current paragraph. Click Define to accept the new name without closing the dialog box; you can then click Cancel to close the dialog box without applying the selected style to the current paragraph.
