Mathematica Menu Item

Format Style

assigns a style to selected cells or text.
  • To assign a style to one or more cells, select the cells and then choose the desired style name from the Style submenu.
  • The cell styles listed in the Style submenu are defined in the stylesheet assigned to your current notebook. Mathematica assigns a default stylesheet called Default to new notebooks.
  • Styles can also be assigned to individual words or characters.
  • The Other dialog box lets you type in a style name to be assigned to the selected cell or text. Not all styles defined in a stylesheet need to be listed in the Style menu. You can also assign cell options by typing the option setting in this dialog box.
