Using Authorware text styles

If you're not a word-processor junkie, you may have limited exposure to the use of styles.A style is a named group of formatting characteristics that can be applied to any section of text.For example, you might have a style called Title that has the following characteristics:

Size:36 pt
Type style:Bold
Color:Dark blue (this would be a specific selection from the color palette in Authorware)

Once this style is defined, you can apply it to any piece of text, and all of its attributes will be transferred to that text.
