Hi Barbara,

Here's what I do. Place my pointer in one of the headings and
make changes to that heading and give it a new tag name which
is added to the list of paragraph tags. Then, still with my pointer
in that heading, I select Format/Paragraphs/Designer. In the
Paragraph Designer dialogue box, click the Commands arrow. Select
the "Global Update Options". In the "Use Properties in the
Paragraph Designer" make appropriate selection. In "Update
Paragraph Formats" select "All Tagged" and select the tag you
want to replace with the new tag.

Hope this works for you.
