Good day all,


1. How to make the STYLE and Standard Editor "NOT" Read Only. As a user, I do have the Administrator permission.

2. I have created a Style but then I do not want it anymore. How? Can I delete it.

Thanks & Regards,

Read-only status has nothing to do with your user account.  It is controlled by the project file (.ipj) in which you are working.  In the project editor, create a new project just for editing your style library, and right click on "Use Style Library = Read-Only" and change it to Read-Write.  Typically, you should use Read-Only for routine use so you or someone else doesn't accidentally mess up your library.


To delete a style from the library, you need to use the Style Library Manager utility (find it under your Start menu).  Use it carefully!
