Saving As a Style

If you find yourself using the same settings or combination of effects, you can save the set.

  1. Select the object with the effects you want to save. Click the plus button and choose Options from the Effects pop-up menu and then choose Save As Style.

  2. Type a name for the style in the New Style dialog box and then click OK.

    The name of your saved effect now appears in the Effects pop-up menu. To apply a saved effect to another object, select the object and then choose the saved effect from the Effects pop-up menu.

    The effects styles you save are listed on the Styles panel, which is in the Assets panel group. Click the expander arrow on the Assets panel group if it is not open and then click the Styles tab. The style you just added is at the bottom of the panel.

    You are not limited to saving effects; you can also save fills, strokes, and text styles. To save a fill and stroke of a selected object, choose New Style from the Styles panel Options menu. Name the style, and the style is added to the panel.

    To delete a style, select the icon of the style on the panel and then choose Delete Styles from the Options menu.
