Default Mixed Font Format in one Style

Is it possible, using Word's Styles, to have multiple fonts on one line?

In my case I've set up a hanging indent style for a heading that is 11pt
Arial/Bold on the left then 9pt bold/italicized at the indent (the right
side of the page).
I've managed to do it using VBA but I'm interested in making my life as
simple as possible which, I might add, learning how to use Styles" has
accomplished to a great degree!

Dayo;
Thanks, I'll have to get into it in more detail but I don't *think* that
it is exactly what I want although it is along the same lines by the
look of it.

Specifically what I'm doing (via VBA) is capturing the Heading,
concatenating it to a tab and inserting it with the heading, which,
seeing as the heading style is a hanging indent, means that the copied
value appears on the right side of the page.
I then select the newly inserted text and modify the font.

Again, thanks - maybe when I look at the article a little harder it will
give me a hint.

Hi Rob,
Yeah, I wasn't quite sure. The article's about getting two styles on one
line, essentially. I'm having a hard time picturing what you are doing but
figured it was worth referring you to, in case there was something there you
could adapt. Did you check into StyleRef fields, which can pick up the
Heading text and then have their own formatting?

Of course, VBA, once you've got it to the point of being added to a toolbar,
does make your life more simple--looking for an alternative to a VBA method
isn't necessarily worth it from that point of view.

Dayo;
It works!
Your comment about "..two styles on one line" made me go back and look
at the reference more closely, as this was what I wanted, and realized I
was "missing the forest for the trees".
(Got my old head too hung up on the TOC references)

The "Hidden Paragraph Mark" section solved the problem.
I defined my own "Heading" as a hanging indent and inserted a tab at the
end of the text and defined a following style (with a different font) to
be indented (left) at the same point.
When I hide the Heading para mark, poof I get exactly what I want!

I can see why MS is including this in Wrd02 (why is it all the features
I want are never in my version(s) :-)) .


Thanks, I'm a better person now!

Glad it helped. Suzanne Barnhill's article, of course.
