How do I add new styles to Google docs?

Solutons:


Right now it’s not possible to add more styles or rename the existed ones, but you can modify them to match your needs.

For example you could style your code as you wish and then by selecting one of the headers and choosing the Update Heading # to match selection, that particular style could become your new “Code” style.

Then select something else and apply that heading and you’re done.

Styles in google docs

As Lipis poins out, you still cannot create your own styles. So, you are left to repurpose an existing one. The downside to using Heading is this will result in “code” in my Table of Contents (TOC). :/ I found that using Title and Subtitle styles for code prevents those styles from showing in TOC.

A lot of the solutions don’t work inline. This is a cleaned-up solution offered by @AlekseyBykov using Google App Scripts to add a custom menu action:

  1. Create a new script (Tools > Script Editor)
  2. Copy the following code into the editor:
// Add new menu item
function onOpen() {
  DocumentApp.getUi()
  .createMenu('Styles')
  .addItem('Format Code', 'formatCode')
  .addToUi();
}

// Define code styling
var style = {};
style[DocumentApp.Attribute.FONT_FAMILY] = DocumentApp.FontFamily.CONSOLAS;
style[DocumentApp.Attribute.FONT_SIZE] = 10;
style[DocumentApp.Attribute.BACKGROUND_COLOR] = "#DDDDDD";
style[DocumentApp.Attribute.FOREGROUND_COLOR] = "#333333";
style[DocumentApp.Attribute.BOLD] = false;

// Apply code formatting
function formatCode() {
  var selection = DocumentApp.getActiveDocument().getSelection();
  if (selection) {
    var elements = selection.getRangeElements();
    for (var i = 0; i < elements.length; i++) {
      var element = elements[i];

      // Only modify elements that can be edited as text; skip images and other non-text elements.
      if (element.getElement().editAsText) {
        var text = element.getElement().editAsText();

        // Style the selected part of the element, or the full element if it's completely selected.
        if (element.isPartial()) {
          text.setAttributes(element.getStartOffset(), element.getEndOffsetInclusive(), style);
        } else {
          text.setAttributes(style);
        }
      }
    }
  }
}
  1. Assign a trigger to run the onOpen function “On open” (Edit > Current Project's Triggers)
  2. After authorizing the script, reload the original document
  3. Use the new menu item to format selected text (Styles > Format Code)
