You can create a new paragraph style in MS Word 2007 and 2010 by selecting an edited paragraph and assigning its style as a new paragraph style.
For example, let’s say you’d like to have all your examples display as indented text, with italicized fonts.
Let’s say this is the paragraph we’d like to reformat and save as a new paragraph style:
Here is the edited text (indented and italicized):
Right click the paragraph and from the pop-up menu select Styles > Save Selection as a New Quick Style :
That selection will display the Create New Style from Formatting dialog box:
Enter the Name of the new style (“Indented” in our case), click Modify it (if necessary), and then click OK. Now a new style, “Indented“, will be displayed in the paragraph styles list:
Now, when you’d like to apply that style to a paragraph, all you need to do is select the text and then click on the Indented style button.
