Help with Styles

A re-occurring question:  I have a .idw file I've created where I want to make all the styles in this document the default for all my .idw files.  I can't seem to make this work.  How should I go about doing this?

What you need to do is in your idw templates in the styles editor, create a new standard.

Then create a new "Object default".  In that new object default.  Set the style settings in there.



Make sure your master project file is read/write before doing any of this.

Once you have your style settings set save them here.


Hope this makes sense.
