Taking Style Mapping to the next level

Have you used your styles consistently throughout your document? Here’s a trick that will let you ‘see’ where your styles have been applied.

Select File > Info > Options. When the Options dialog box opens, select the Advanced options from the left frame. Scroll until you can see the Display options.

Set the Style area to 3 or 4 cm and click OK.

Return to the document and choose to view the document in Outlining or Draft view. Your styles will appear on the left side.
