Printing a Style Sheet

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 5, 2022)

If you use styles within your documents, Word allows you to print a style sheet that you can use as a reference when applying and planning styles for your document. To print a style sheet, follow these steps:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the Print settings area.
  2. Click the first setting under the Settings heading. (This setting shows as Print All Pages by default.) Word displays a drop-down list of options. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. Choosing to print a style list.

  4. Click on Styles, under the Document Info section.
  5. Click the Print button.

If you are using Word 2007, then the steps are different:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 2.)
  2. Figure 2. The Print dialog box.

  3. In the Print What drop-down list, select Styles.
  4. Click on OK.
