Document .Net - Formatting and Styles

Formatting and Styles


Styles make a document more compact by reducing the number of repeated definitions and properties, and the amount of work required to make changes to the document's appearance. There are several styles type: CharacterStyle, ParagraphStyle, TableStyle and ListStyle.
For example, using CharacterStyle, the appearance of all the pieces of text that share a common style can be changed in one place, in that style's definition.
