Global Styles

“Global” styles can be shared among objects. In this way, style changes can be made very quickly and efficiently across multiple objects. By default, every style that is applied to an object is global. If the style is changed, the change cascades across all objects that share an instance of that style. test

About Global Styles

When using a global style, each object you draw will “share” the same style. If the style is changed, the change cascades across all objects sharing an instance of the style. For example, choose a global style and draw three objects in a row – they share the same style; adjust the style and the change automatically cascades across all three objects.

To Break the Style Link in Global Styles

When using a global style, each object you draw will share the same style as the previous object. To break the style link between successive objects, do one of the following:

  1. Click ‘Clone’. ‘Clone’ creates a new style based on a copy of the style currently in use, or
  2. Click “Reset” to reset to the default style.

HINT: Editing a global style will cascade changes across all object that share that style, including if the style is in use in other documents. As needed, use ‘Clone’ to work with a copy of the style without affecting previously drawn objects.
