This is a follow-up question from another thread here:
Trying to get my head around Styles & Headings in MS Word
When working in MS Word, once styles have been set up for a the different formatting that may be used, what is the best way to apply those styles to new content?
I know that for a typical document in which the content is being entered by typing, etc., the styles can be assigned "as you go" (by selecting the new portion of text and, in the Home menu, clicking that particular style). However, suppose the new content is already written and resides in some other application and the amount of content is such that formatting it by clicking on text and assigning styles is not a practical option. Is there any way to "flag" or "mark" certain portions so that they can be assigned to the correct style?
