The University of Pittsburgh ETD Word template has pre-set styles so that when they are applied to the various parts of your paper, it complies with the format guidelines.
For example, main chapter titles are supposed to be centered, bolded, on a new page with white space above and below. Applying the Heading 1 style to your chapter titles makes all these changes to your text in addition to linking it to the table of contents page. To apply styles you will first need to open the Styles Manager.
|Appendix||Use for Appendix page Headings (labeled A)|
|App Section||Use for Appendix second level sections (labeled A.1)|
|App Subsection||Use for Appendix third level sections (labeled A.1.1)|
|Bibliography Entry||Use for bibliography entries (If you are using custom citation formatting, please contact us for assistance)|
|Heading||Use for Preface and Bibliography page headings|
|Heading 1||Use for main concepts or chapter headings (labeled 1.0)|
|Heading 2||Use for second level concept headings (labeled 1.1)|
|Heading 3||Use for third level concept headings (labeled 1.1.1)|
|Heading 4||Use for fourth level concept headings (labeled 188.8.131.52)|
|Normal||Use for all regular body content|
|Preliminary||Use for the titles: List of Figures, List of Tables, or List of Equations|
4. To remove a style, you place your cursor in the line with the style you wish to remove. Then use the Styles menu to select Normal. This will clear any heading or formatting styles that may change the text you enter beyond that point. You can then reapply the particular style you intended to use.
If you started your draft in a non-template file, you may be able to import the necessary styles into your ETD draft without having to copy and paste content from one document to another. If you didn't use any headings or captions in your draft document, this method may still work, but it might be slightly easier to copy and paste all your body text into a fresh template and work from there.
