How can I customize my text?

Currently, any format changes made to any writing objects will be applied to ALL writing objects in that section (i.e., cover, preliminaries, body, addenda). This keeps your output looking consistent and professional.

The style guide wizard enables you to customize the formatting and save the settings for:

  • paragraph & long quote
  • lists: numbered, unnumbered, and outlined
  • headings 1-5
  • image captions
  • page margins
  • cross-references
  • smart lists: contents, list of images, footnotes & endnote

If you need a specific style for a single object, try customizing 'Heading 5' and use that. Typically, most writing projects don't need 5 levels of heading, so this one is a 'spare', and can be used as you require. 

Contact the Support Desk if you need further assistance.
