Presenter: Richard Steele
What the workshop will cover: Styles are a way of organising long documents by automating the process of numbering chapter headings and subheadings, and captions. This leads to the automatic generation of Table of Contents, List of Figures, List of Tables, List of Appendices. Navigation within a document is much easier because of the appearance of the style-based headings in the Navigation Pane. Styles save time, provide consistency, and help your work look professional. This will be a hands-on workshop (learning by doing) so please bring your computers.
