To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoI found a much easier way (it works for Word 2016, I don't know for earlier versions of Word):
- In the document you have created your styles and headings, go to the 'Design' tab and click the downward arrow on the style sets. Then choose 'Save as a New Style Set'. A popup window will open to save the style set as a Word Template (*.dotx). Type in a name for the template style set and save it.
- In the new document where you want to use these styles, go again to the 'Design' tab and click the downward arrow on the styles sets. Then choose your saved template style set under 'Custom'. The style set will apply to your headings (if included in the template) and you can choose those styles for any paragraph.
