Apply the updated style to the selection

When you select text and use it to update a style, the style, itself, is not applied to the text. You must do that as an additional step, after you have selected Update to Match Selection.

  • While the formatted text in your document is still selected, click the style name to apply it to the selection.
When you do that, you will see that the Formatting of selected text entry in the task pane displays the name of the style.
