When embarking on a new text you will invariably ask yourself: should I concentrate just on the content and leave the formattingtill later? Or should I try to format the text properly right from the beginning?

The second approach is the right one. Using Styles is so easy there is really no reason why you shouldn’t apply themsystematically right from the start. Here some of the advantages of this way of going about things:

  • speed
  • you can jump directly to any chapter without scrolling (see section 9 on the Navigator)
  • easy reordering of chapters and sections (again using the Navigator)
  • you’ll know exactly what the final result will look like
