Hi everyone,

I'm french and I hope to be clear enough

I'd like to change the style with a text block. But I can't

In a page, if I want to have different styles I have to go to the line and have another paragraph

But I wish to change within a line, inside it. And it doesn't work...

I believe what you're describing is the difference between a paragraph style and a character style. I know when creating a style, you can change the formatting from "Save all Formatting" or "Save Paragraph Style" to "Save Character Style", but I don't know how to change an existing style from the "all formatting" or paragraph style to character style. You may have to simply select the text that is styled the way you want and use the Format->Style->New Style from Selection menu, and then be sure to change the Formatting drop-down list to "Save Character Style".
