Sharing Text Styles Between Documents

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

When I create a text style in a project it doesn't show in other documents, so how to share text styles between documents

should I export and import to all documents ? not practical if thats the only way.

 

Kindest Regards

Hi Ammar,

 

At the moment you will need to export them and then import them into the documents you want to use them with. I'd advise making a Feature Request for a global text styles option :)

 

Thanks

You don't need to export them. You can bring them in from another document directly by using Text > Text Styles > Import Text Styles, and you can make the current stylesheet the default for new documents by using Text > Text Styles > Save Text Styles as Default.

Very cool! Yet another feature I never would have been aware of had it not been mentioned in the forum.  :)

I came to this thread looking for a way to share text styles from Designer to Publisher. In Publisher, I couldn't just open the styles from a Designer text style sheet.

The solution for me was to open the Designer file into Publisher and then save the document from Publisher.  Then I could import the text styles from the Publisher document into my working publisher document using Text>Text Styles>Import Text Styles.

I just checked and I could import styles from a Designer document into Publisher documents. Use the Text Styles Import Styles ... from the hamburger menu.

Then navigate to your Designer document with the styles you want to import.
