Styles/ categories in Word Processor-:

Styles-: Style give your document a consistent, professional look. using styles in Microsoft Word is the best way to create a well-formatted documents.  A style is a set of text formatting characteristic, such as font size, color, and alignment.You use styles to format your document.

You can use styles to quickly apply a set of formatting choices consistently throughout your document. If you want formatting choices that are not available from the built-in styles and themes available in Word, you can modify an existing style and customize it to suit your needs. You can change the formatting (such as font size, color, and text indentation) in styles applied to titles, headings, paragraphs, lists, and so on. You can also select formatted text in your document to create a new style in the Styles gallery.

A style in Word is nothing more than a clutch of text and paragraph formats. You give the style a name, and then you use it to format your text. Or you can format your text first and then make a style to match.You can find styles located on the Home tab and Design Tab, in the  Styles group.

 

 

Five different types of styles, each customized to format a different document element in Word:

  • Paragraph: The paragraph style contains both paragraph and text formatting attributes: indents, tabs, font, text size — you name it. It’s the most common type of style.

  • Character: The character style formats only characters, not paragraphs.

  • Linked: The linked style is a combination style that can be applied to both paragraphs and individual characters. The difference depends on which text is selected when you apply the style.

  • Table: The table style is applied to tables, to add lines and shading to the table cells’ contents.

  • List: The list style is customized for presenting lists of information. The styles can include bullets, numbers, indentation, and other formats typical for the parts of a document that present lists of information.

These style types come into play when you create your own style, as well as when you’re perusing styles to apply to your text. For example, if you want to create a new look for tables in your document, you make a Table style. Or when you want a style to affect only text and not paragraphs, you create a Character style.
