Re: Need good reference for writing Stylesheets
Where do the standard style sheets in the Format >> Style Sheet hierarchical menu hide? How can one add a customized style sheet to that menu? (other than modifying one of the existing ones) If one has edited a private style sheet for (and within) a Mathematica notebook, how can one pull that style sheet out of that notebook, assign it a name, and put it somewhere? (as well as into the Style Sheet menu) Some of the standard named style sheets in the Format >> Style Sheet menu seem to have styles associated with the different command keys that are different not just visually or "format-wise" but functionally. One time when I stepped through these named style sheets with one of my notebooks open, just to see what different styles looked like, it seemed to leave some of the cells in my notebook seriously screwed up (from the nature of the damage, my guess is one of the styles had made some of the non-Input cells in my notebook into evaluatable cells, and they didn't like it). Should there be a warning about this? More generally, are these standard styles illustrated and discussed in any documentation anywhere? Several other applications that I use also have named styles (EndNote 8, for example, has 1,189 (!!) named styles for formatting journal citations, which is insane, not to say criminal!). Several of these have at the bottom of their "Styles" menu a set of more or less blank style templates named "Custom 1", . . . . "Custom 6" to use for making your own styles. Wolfram?
