When you modify a style in your Word 2007 document, all text formatted with that style is updated with your changes. Here’s how to get going with modifications.


Summon the Styles task pane.

Click the Dialog Box Launcher in the lower-right corner of the Styles group (on the Home tab), or press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S.


Point the mouse at the style you want to change.

A menu button appears on the right end of the style's entry.


Click the menu button to display the style’s menu, and choose Modify.

The Modify Style dialog box appears.


Change the formatting for your style.

Use any of the formatting options to change your style. You can click the Format button in the lower-left corner of the Modify Style dialog box to display a pop-up list of formatting dialog boxes. Select one to further customize your style.


Click OK when you’re done.

Close the task pane if you’re done with it.
