Do you think Zoho Writer's default heading and text styles are boring? You can now define awesome themes to your taste with endless combinations of text styles and quickly setup a document with one of these.
Zoho Writer has come up with a new feature : Custom Styles, using which you can customize the the styles for the headings and the body text and even save them for further use. This will be very useful when you want to carry the styles across multiple documents without having them to be defined redundantly for each one of them.
For example, say, you have written a Legal document with all the specific styles defined for all the heading and the body text, and you wanted this formatting to be applied for all the legal documents you write in Zoho Writer, you can save the style-set under a name 'Legal' and use it later in all your legal documents.
The styles can be defined either by :
selecting a chunk of text containing the required formatting and assigning the style to a particular heading/body-text
defining the style in the custom-styles dialog itself that exposes all the possible formatting available for the heading/body-text.
Note that once this step is done, all the corresponding headings in the document will be changed to the latest heading style. Say if you had updated the Heading 1 style all the Heading 1 in the document will be changed.
You can repeat the same steps for other heading levels too.
The procedure is same as described above in 'How to customize a Heading style'. You can either select a text with the formatting choose 'Update Body Text to Match Selection' from right click or edit the style from the 'Custom Style' dialog.
Once everything is set, you can save this style-set in two ways.
Choose 'Save Current Document Style As' from the option as shown below
Use 'Save As' option from Custom Styles dialog as shown below
You are all set now!
Applying style for a document is just few clicks away. Choose the saved styles from
toolbar->"Custom Styles Icon "->"Preview/Apply Saved Styles" apply them right away on the document.
If you wish to make the current document style as a default for all the future document choose 'Make it default for all new documents' from the 'Custom Style Dialog'.
If any point of time if you wish to reset the styles to default in the document, choose 'Reset Current Document Style' from the menu as shown below:
