Microsoft Word displays a dedicated panel, allowing you to choose a predefined style as per your requirements. However, if you want to add a new style to the Style Gallery in Word, here is how you can do that. As in-built options are enough to get the job done, you do not need a third-party add-in to add such a custom style to the repository.
When you open Word to create a document, you can find a Styles section in the Home tab. This panel showcases a few preset styles, such as Heading, Heading 2, Title, Subtitle, etc., so that you can add a style to your paragraphs quickly. However, at times, you might want to create or edit style and add it to the Style Gallery so that you can use it swiftly. If you do so, you do not need to open the repository every time you want to use the custom style.
