  2. If the Style you would like for your document is not showing, click on “Select Another Style”. A list appears containing several hundred common styles.
  3. Type a letter to jump down the list of available styles, highlight your selection, eg. Chicago 16th Author-Date, and click on OK. Your document will be automatically reformatted in that Style. This style is now added to your favourites list, and appears in your drop-down menu in future.

What if the style I am looking for is not there?
