Rearranging Styles on AD (AD Desktop Mac)

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone,

I have created a whole bunch of styles over the months, organised and stacked in different categories in the styles panel. Now, I am not too happy with the categories any more. 

Is there an easy way to move styles from one category to another? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi there, thanks for getting back to me. :) 

I thought so, but sometimes you just seem to miss the obvious..

It´s not possible to break up the categories during import/ export either, right? I mean, I could not export single styles from a category, could I? 

Thanks!

I had this problem : copy styles I use often from one category into another.
Here's what I did, a bit laborious maybe, but it worked.

1. Create a new empty category,  & give it a name.

2. File >New >Create a small rectangle, no fill

3. Change over to the category FROM which you want to copy the style.

4. Select the rectangle >Fill the rectangle with the style you wish to copy

5. in the styles menu, go back to the empty category >click "Create style from selection".

This way you can fill your own category, one style at a time.

Another way : create of rectangles equal to the number of styles you want to copy,
fill with the styles you want to copy & create style from selection into your empty category  one by one.
