view and add new rules by category
Each option of the Style Guide command includes descriptions of specific stylistic rules, descriptions that are there to aid the user in deciding what stylistic rule to follow in case of doubt. To view these descriptions, go to Style Guide—>Consult the style guide, and choose one of the four main rules (Capitalization, Non-breaking spaces, Italic/Roman, and Other stylistic rules). Each rule includes descriptions of various stylistic categories specific to that rule. To add a new stylistic category, choose one of the four main rules, and click on the Add button.
Anytime you modify or add a rule in the Style Guide, choose a stylistic category to associate with it.
To create a new stylistic category, choose the Add a style guide rule entry at the bottom of the dropdown list.
