32 Lesson 16 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 3E 32 Using Templates and Styles (continued) Creating a New Document Based on a Template: Fields in the document help to ensure that you enter the variable data in the correct places, so if you leave a field blank, the field placeholder text will not appear in the printed copy of the document. 32

33 Lesson 16 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 3E 33 Using Templates and Styles (continued) Working with Styles: A style is a set of formatting characteristics that you can apply to characters, paragraphs, tables, and numbered and bulleted lists. When you apply a style, you apply a whole group of formats in one simple step. For example, instead of taking multiple steps to format your title as 14 point, Arial, bold, and center-aligned, you can achieve the same result in one step by applying a title style. 33

34 Lesson 16 Morrison / WellsCLB: A Comp Guide to IC 3 3E 34 Summary In this lesson, you learned: Text can be arranged in a variety of multicolumn formats, all within the same document.
