Styles: Concepts

Use a style to define the paragraph and character formats for your documents, thus determining the text formatting. You can use a style, for example, to highlight certain character strings or entire paragraphs.

You can allocate a style to every text. However, usually styles are used for the main windows of forms, into which the user can directly enter text.

If you allocate a style to a window, the system deactivates any format specifications of the underlying form for this window. The system then formats and prints the text entirely according to the format specifications defined in the style.
