I'm looking for resources on how to approach using Text Styles. I understand technically how to use them, but I am struggling with practically how to use them.
I often find myself making sure that any text I use is assigned to a paragraph style. What I end up with is a huge list of styles that is hard to keep up with. Maybe I am not making enough use of groups and inheritance, but if I'm drilling down into the 5th nest of a style, why am I even using a style and not just selecting those attributes from the Character and Paragraph panels?
When I select a style and change an attribute, I get a + that shows that it is different. Is it ok to have those + signs in the document, or is it best practice to not have them? Why does changing the font size add a +, but adding Bold does not?
Maybe I should only assign a paragraph style to a paragraph if there is more than one paragraph I want to be styled exactly the same, otherwise maybe I shouldn't use them.
I also think that if I am running into over 10 or so styles, I have really introduces too many and need to start scaling back.
Some resources would be awesome. Some quick tips and thoughts would be approciated. Even some screen shots of the text styles panel for documents that you all thing are very well organised might help a ton! thanks!
