Text > Text Styles > Save Text Styles As default vs....

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to clarify what the difference is between using:

  1. Text > Text Styles > Save Text Styles As default and
  2. ( Edit > Defaults > Synchronise with Selection + Edit > Defaults > Save )

…when managing Text Style defaults.

True/false: 1) is application defaults, and 2) is document defaults?

True/false: the moment a user creates Text Styles, they are creating 2) anyway, wthout touching Text > Text Styles > Save Text Styles As default?

Thank you

I've not been recommending Affinity Suite as an equivalent to Adobe to professional colleagues so far. I'm hoping version two will be addressing fundamental things - 1) Too many missing basic, but fundamental, features like selected object colour swatch highlights on iPad, & 2) A shed load of inconsistencies between apps, within apps, and between ipad v desktop - you effectively have to learn 6 apps, not 3 (The ideal being 3 flavours of 1 core app, if you follow).

#1 defines the Text Styles that will exist, and the user can choose from, in new documents.

#2 sets default characteristics for new objects that are created.

For your questions: False, and False.

This refers to the Paragraph and Character styles. Going forward the Paragraph and Character styles that are available in the Text Styles panel are the ones which will available to you with new documents made from a Preset. A template file (*.aftemplate) will have the Paragraph and Character styles that were in the document when the template file was made by using File > Export as Template....

This saves your formatted paragraph as the [No Style] Paragraph and Character styles. For all ongoing new documents, and any new text items made in the current document.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
