Customizing Document Styles

Change Document Style

Zoho Writer allows you to customize your own themes and setup documents as per your requirement. Using Custom Styles, you can customize the the styles for the headings and the body text and even save them with as templates to use it in future. For example, if you have 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 can use Zoho Writer, and save the style-set under the 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 or defining the style in the custom-styles dialog itself that exposes all the possible formatting available for the heading/body-text.
