I have created a stylesheet named "RL01 stylesheet.nb" and have placed
it in the ...\FrontEnd\StyleSheets directory.
If, in an open notebook, I execute the command
NotebookCreate[StyleDefinitions->"RL01 stylesheet.nb"], a new, untitled
notebook is created using the specified stylesheet.
I would like the front end, upon startup, to automatically do the same
thing. I.e., I would like the default notebook -- the one that
appears when the front end is opened upon loading Mathematica -- to be
a notebook that uses the specified stylesheet.
Toward this end, I have inserted the command
NotebookCreate[StyleDefinitions->"RL01 stylesheet.nb"] in my init.m
file. However, this does not have the desired effect; I just get the
standard default untitled notebook upon startup. (My init.m file is
clearly functioning, since all other commands in the file are being
I am puzzled as to why this command works when executed from within an
existing open notebook, yet seems to have no effect in the init.m file.
I am aware that I can use the Option Inspector to achieve a somewhat
similar result, but I would like to do this through the init.m file
I am running Mathematica 3.0 under Windows 95.
Any advice would be appreciated.
