It make _much_ more sense to become familiar with Styles. For example, I can take the entire text of a book (I often use War and Peace as an example), spend about 10 minutes assigning styles for (inter alia) Chapter Headings, preliminary pages and body text. Within the twinkling of an eye I can dramatically reformat the entire work both in typeface, layout and page size. Anything I write uses a small number of customised styles and at any stage of writing can give an almost final printout.
