5. Adding and Formatting Text > Applying Styles

Applying Styles

Text formatting works in the same way that it does in Pages or Word. You can format selected text by applying preset styles or by customizing the font, typeface variant, size, color, alignment, and other attributes individually. When you modify a style, all text throughout the book to which that style is applied changes automatically to reflect the new look. Each template includes the following built-in styles:

Paragraph styles (Title, Subtitle, Body, and so on) apply to entire paragraphs. A paragraph ends with a paragraph-break character ¶, which is inserted when you press Return to start a new paragraph. To see paragraph-break characters, choose Show Invisibles from the View pop-up menu in the toolbar.

Character styles (Emphasis, Italic, Hyperlink, and so on) override paragraph styles and apply only to the selected text.
