    2 paragraph styles in same paragraph (Word XP)

    Hi gang,
    I came upon a document where there is 2 paragraph styles in the same paragraph.
    There is some text with Heading 1 applied to it, then a paragraph mark with a dotted line around it, then on the same line another style begins (bodyText).
    The ToC picks up the Heading 1.
    How does one achieve such a "tour de force".
    Tks

    Word 2002 (XP) instroduced the so-called style separator. You can insert it by typing Ctrl+Alt+Enter, or you can add a toolbar button for it:
    - Select Tools | Customize...
    - Activate the Commands tab.
    - Select All Commands in the list of Categories.
    - Select InsertStyleSeparator in the list of Commands.
    - Drag it to a convenient location on a toolbar.
    - Close the Customize window.

    Hi Hans,

    Having already the para-character formatting available - what would the clever implementation of this be?

    Any examples of how this might be used and where it would come in handy?
    - sounds somewhat interesting and as a potential solution to previous experienced problems, though I'm not currently able to see where I would use such a thing...
    Bests,
    RD


    PS: Wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence. There's a knob called "brightness," but that doesn't work

    Hi Henrik,
    I work in a lawyers office and we use it for legal documents that go like this:
    1.2 Lease Duration. The lease duration should not exceed.......
    Only the 1.2 and Lease Duration is in bold and picked up by the ToC. The rest of the paragraph is in normal text.
    At my new job, I came upon a doc like that and was curious on how this was achieved.
    Thanks to Hans for his enlightment.
