Transcript:Import Word Styles in PublisherHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I'll show you how to import Word styles into Microsoft Publisher.
This is a great way to quickly format a Publisher document to look like the rest of your word processing files.
Open Documents in Publisher and WordFirst open Microsoft Publisher. I'll open a saved Publisher document that I would like to format.
Now, I'll open a Word document containing the style I want. To ensure that the style is saved, highlight it and go to Format, Styles, and Formatting.
Create the Style in Microsoft WordOn the right side, click 'new style,' and make any changes to your text. I'll change the font, color, and make it a heading. Name it, and click 'OK.'
Now you can select your style, and it will format your text. Save and close your Word document.
Import the Style Into Microsoft PublisherBack in Publisher go up to Format, and choose 'styles and formatting.' On the left side, click 'import styles.'
Select the Word document containing your style, and click 'OK.'
Format Text in Microsoft PublisherUnder the Show dropdown menu, select 'all styles,' and you will see your style in the list. Select the text box you want to format, and then click on your new style.
