In this short episode of this series some handy tips. Nothing special. Nothing deep. Just things I stumbled upon in my daily work routine.
Style or class not in the Style list box.
You want to change the style of a piece of text, but the style is not in the Style drop-down list. I could not find the button style. Just did not show its face. Not to worry.
- Click the arrow to the right of the Style field.
- Erase the style name.
- Replace it with the style you cannot find.
- Click Enter.
The piece of text will have the style you typed in the list box.
And all of a sudden I had my button style.
Creating non-numbered ‘headings’
For the marketing department I had to create a short product paper. All my heading styles were numbered and this did not look fine in the output.
First I tried to create a class for a heading style, vigorously trying to delete the Auto-Number setting. To no avail. Did not work.
Finally I went for the work around to create a p class and add the settings of the heading. There was no need to add a TOC to this document, so this worked out fine.
Still wondering though if I could have done it by tweeking a heading style. Probably not.
