Learn how to save a style that can work between documents.
I have been working on a series of documents that require special formatting for our university. Sometimes I work on a Mac and sometimes I work on a PC, and it frustrates me to open up the documents and not have the styles I created available.
Create a style in Word
If you don't know how to create a style, you are a step behind these instructions. You need to at least format some text and save it as a style. This is on the home tab, Styles.
Save Style as a Set
My problem is that I was only using styles from the HOME tab. I needed to go to the design tab and choose "Save as New Style Set". This prompted the template window. Now there is a file that can be shared between computers and opened to apply to other documents.
