Styles got a will of their own

Post by Agnostus » 2008-08-19 07:43:41

Hi!

Just stumbled into a minor problem with styles. I have a style, let's call it Style2 that is based on another style, say Style1; Style1 has the attribute "italic", but Style2 is not supposed to have that attribute. So I remove it (set it to "unitalic" in the Stylesheet view. The trouble is, that it somehow is not possible to achieve this permanently. Every time I close the document and later reopen it, Style2 has the "italic" attribute again (or rather lost the "unitalic" attrribute). Anyone else having this problem? Am I doing something wrong with style inheritance?

Cheers,
Martin

Howdy. Maybe the dependency needs to be in the opposite direction, since Italic is a dependent style on Roman, not the other way around.

Just a guess from an old codger, and probably wrong. :lol:

I could not reproduce this. I created two styles based on Normal, both + Italics, named Normal 1 and Normal 2. One was created via stylesheet, the other via menu Insert > New Style > Based on Selection. I then saved the file, quit the application and reopened. The styles were still there with their italicized attribute.
How did you exactly create the new style?

Cheers, Henry.

I also tried to reproduce this a few different ways without success. Could you send us the problem document and indicate which style is losing the "unitalic" attribute?
