Is there a way to share a custom stylesheet between documents? That would be very useful...

Sure there is.

To do this, you have to use copy and pasting. To copy an existing customized style, go to View-> Style Sheet. Select the custom style you want to move to another document and copy it (Cmd-C, or select Edit - Copy).

Switch to the other document, and set the view to Style Sheet if you haven't already. Simply paste (Cmd-V or select Edit-Paste), and the custom style will be added to this document.

Hope this helps,

Thank you, but in fact I was looking for a way to share a whole stylesheet between many different documents, without having to copy-and-paste each style every time I change it. Sorry for not stating that clearly. I guess what I am looking for is something along the lines of cascading style sheets, i.e. an independent source/file for style information.

I once ran into this problem and solved it by:
    - using one of my files as a template for new documents
    - importing each file in a new document while keeping its styles
    - selecting the text for each old style and assigning it the new intended style
    - getting rid of the stale styles
Since Nisus lets you switch new file templates from its preferences, I may select any regular or homemade dot file whenever I start a new doc.

I'm aware this might look a bit tedious at first look, but as a professional writer I only use about half a dozen style-sheets... and this I can handle.
