How to view styles in Word? Word provides the Style Pane Options, one of which is used to view all the styles used in the current document.

Word's Style Pane Options includes: setting the displayed styles, the sorting method of the styles list, the displayed formatting of styles and the displayed method of the built-in style names. After introducing how to view all the styles used in the document, the Style Pane Options will be introduced.
