I am using W7 and Publisher 2011.
When I select all components on the canvas and change the Style, non of the sub-components change and I have to do them individually.
On top of that, the option to set changes across multiple snapshots now refuses to work, so I have to change everything individually across individual snapshots.
Can you try a repair install of Publisher and see if this problem and the one that you mentioned in the other thread goes away? I am trying to reproduce these two issues from my side and I am not able to reproduce the issues.
