With global named text styles you can achieve two main goals:


1. Standardize documentation looks - all topics will be formatted in the common way.

2. Reduce CSS file size for HTML driven documentation. 

3. Use the same table formatting for all tables

4. Use the same color scheme for all shapes if you add annotations to images in the image library.


Named styles are located under "Styles" node in the project tree view. 


There are 4 types of styles in Helpinator:


  1. Text styles

When you change properties of a named style changes will be reflected in all topics/snippets that use this style.

Or you can change shape style from the shape properties dialog (double-click on the shape).
