When working on large documents, knowing how to use  paragraph and character styles will be very important and come in handy.

One of the best ways to format text in a long document or a document that has repeating formats is to use paragraph or character styles. When we use styles we’re creating a style sheet that will be used to format text whenever that format has to be repeated. For example, to make sure body text and/or subheads are consistent throughout a document, we would style sheet. Using a style sheet will make it quick and easy to make universal changes formatting if you need to change some aspect of the formatting, like point size, font or font color.
