To Apply Style Overrides
- With the text editor preference (Preferences dialog Text category) set to either Word Processor or Dialog Box, start the Place Text, Edit Text, or Place Note tool.
Modify the text attributes.
Modifying attributes in any of these ways introduces overrides.
Common text attributes are available on the tool settings dialogs for these tools. If a value is overridden, its label turns blue. You can revert all settings to the underlying style by selecting the Reset Style button next to the text style drop-down list box.
Common text attributes are also available in the icon bar of the text editor window.
Open the Text Styles dialog while one of these tools is active, and select Style (none) from the list. Changes made in the Text Styles dialog now apply to the text, and will not be made to the underlying style. If a value is overridden, its label turns blue.
After entering or editing the text, enter a data point to accept.
Note: When the option Apply to all text in the Preferences dialog, Text category is off, changing text attributes applies to any text selection you have made in the respective editor, or to the text entered immediately after the change. This means that overrides from the style only apply to this selection. For example, if attributes are changed in the underlying text style, all other text in the element updates, while the overridden portion does not. With this option on, changing text attributes affects all existing text in the editor, as well as text entered after the change.
