Very often, your custom text style is derived from another text style. In this case, it can be created without first typing some sample text. Right click on the "parent" style name in the Styles & Formatting panel and chose New from the context menu. The new style will have all its attributes and properties preset to those of the parent style. Just modify the relevant ones.

Similarly, if you plan your layout (look and feel) in advance, you can create all your styles from the Styles & Formatting panel, either with the procedure above for modified styles, or by right-clicking in an empty area and choosing New.

To keep the idea behind the built-in style names (their suggested usage behind their names), you can also customise their appearance with Modify....

Yes. Here's how.

Format the text the way you want it, then select it.

Then click Format > Styles and Formatting.

Then click the button near the top right of the Styles and Formatting dialogue window, and choose New Style from Selection.

Finally, type a name for your new style into the text field that pops up, and click OK.
