Duplicating a Style

Styles can easily be duplicated, so that it's easy to have multiple styles with slight variations.

To duplicate a style:

  1. From the Style Manager create a new style
  2. Provide a name, and under 'Build from Style', select the style you want to duplicate

This will build your new style from the selected style - providing an exact replica.

To duplicate a style across publications

If you want to create a duplicate of a style, but place it within a different publication, we have to make use of the Style 'Type' function which is fully explained here. If you're already familiar with Style Type's, then follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Style Manager, set the style that you want to make a copy of to 'Global'
  2. Navigate to the publication you want the copy to be created in
  3. Create a new style
  4. Provide a name
  5. Under the 'Build from style' option, select the Style that you just set to Global
  6. Select Ok
  7. You now have a perfect duplicate of the original style
  8. Finally - Navigate back to the Style Manager of the publication the Global style originated from
  9. Change the Global style's 'Type' back to 'Publication'
