    I'm able to use the default selection of styles offered, and can create new styles, but cannot adjust their look, and can only select my new styles via keyboard shortcuts. This is due to my using Tiger, so I'm not asking for a solution. I'm wondering if some writers are in fact satisfied, for the most part, with those styles found as a default selection in preferences, and no more. Or do you make many more. For example, in a short story, or even a novel, I would imagine one could easily make due with the three default paragraph styles while working in Ulysses.

    Are those who are able to make full use of styles, actually finding they prefer to use a limited number of them to avoid complicating their work? Or, do you like to use a good number of them?

    For web writing, I have added most of the MarkDown tags - works fine. For creative writing, I only use the Italics and Chapter Heading styles from the MD set. For stage plays I have added a few custom paragraph styles (Scene Heading, Action, Parenthetical, Character and Dialog) -- these nicely lined out in Courier when exported. I tried using the markers (mainly 'Rework' ;-)), but somehow I always end up using comments instead.
