Printing Style Sheets

(last updated September 7, 2013)

In your permanent documentation for a file, you may wish to print a record of the style sheet you used. Word allows you to do this quite easily. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Press Ctrl+P to display the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. Using the Print What drop-down list select Styles.
  4. Click on Print.

The resultant style sheet is not terribly pretty, but it provides the information you may need to understand (at a later date) the styles you used in developing your document.

I wanted to thank you for your wonderful site. This just save me a lot of time.

Question: (you must get tired of these). Is there a way to make a schema for styles (e.g. like an xml file or something) that I can import and ensure I know exactly what styles are available?

Thanks again
