  1. After you have typed (or placed) your text, you can set up a paragraph style for individual paragraphs. The advantage of using paragraph styles is that you can re-use your styles for other paragraphs later in your document. Select the paragraph you would like to edit and select the paragraph styles window from the left or select Window > Type and Tables... > Paragraph Styles.
  2. Next create and name a new paragraph style by clicking the new paragraph style button (red circle in image below).[Premium Content - Login] [Membership Options]
