Ok, and update to my earlier set of instructions that simplifies things. When you have created the new style definitions in your original notebook's " edit StyleSheet" working area, select the cells that are there (including the first one that says "Ineriting base definitions...). Next copy these to the clipboard via File>Edit>Copy (or the keyboard eauivalent). Now go to File>Install... to bring up the instll dialog. Choose Stylesheet from the first menu. Choose "From Clipboard" from the second menu and type a name for your stylsheet in the input field and then click Finish. Voila, the stylsheet now exists and is in your Stylesheet submenu. This obviates all of the scratch notebooks that I used in my previous post. --David On Oct 1, 4:58 am, AES <sieg... at stanford.edu> wrote: > 1) I do essentially all my notebooks in a single default format or > stylesheet, which I'd like to edit in some trivial ways (e.g., change > the working Text font to Helvetica. > > What's the recommended procedure for doing this?
