Cannot Create Custom Style.

Post by Narcoleptic » Sun Aug 26, 2018 11:27 pm

Hi!

Have been using cmap tools for years on and off but would not call myself an advanced user.

After recently installing the software (v.6.03) again on my new computer i ra[n into trouble trying to create a custom style (or copy the one i always tend to use really). This do not seem to work like in the help document any more, since when i get to the step "To give a name to the style used by the Cmap items you selected, left-click the arrow at the bottom portion of the "Styles" window." there simply is no arrow to click, and stumbling around the available options have not led to a solution.

I must admit i never found this process very intuitive, but now im at a loss, since the method in help seem outdated.
To clarify - i remember it working according to the description in "Help", but it no longer seem to. Please advice.

Best regards,

/N

Hi

We moved to the new Templates as a replacement to Named Styles. You may want to try them. See for examaple:

https://cmap.ihmc.us/docs/cmaptools-hel ... #templates

https://cmap.ihmc.us/docs/cmaptools-hel ... letemplate

To simplify the Palette, we made the display of Named Styles in the Style Palette an option. Go to the Preferences Panel, and under Edit Preferences select "Show Named Styles in the Style Palette".
