why not just apply the paragraph style, type the heading, hit tab, type the paragraph, then select the heading and apply the character style? Or go back and style it later?
Of course it's a personal preference
That's perfectly possible too, of course, as is manual adjustment to overcome the problem of multideck side heads, but the application of Styles on the fly makes for a more elegant solution, to my way of thinking. The other thing is that once Styles are allocated, you can change them en masse using "Select Style Range" or "Select All Style" which makes for very fast formatting changes document-wide.
Also, once into a routine of keyboard shortcuts to switch Styles, I don't find it a burden to insert them as I go.
