SUMMARY
=======

NOTE: This information is in the Publisher Help file topic "Using a
Style Created in Another Publication or Application."

You can use styles in Publisher that were created in other
publications or applications.

A style is part of the publication in which it was created. To use the
same style in other publications, place a copy of that style in each
publication in which you want to use the style. Copying a style from
one publication to another is called "importing" a style. You can also
use styles from documents created in other applications, such as
Microsoft Word for Windows.

To import a style from another Publisher publication, do the
following:

1. From the Format menu, choose Text Styles.

2. Under Click To, choose Import New Styles.

3. In the File Name box, choose the publication that contains the
   styles you want to import and then choose the OK button.

4. In the Text Styles dialog box, choose the Close button.

Publisher copies all of the styles from that publication into your
current one, and displays them in the style list.

To import a style from another application:

1. From the Format menu, choose Text Styles.

2. Under Click To, choose Import New Styles.

3. Under Directories, choose the directory containing the document
   with the styles you want to import.

   Publisher lists all the documents that contain formats that
   Publisher can recognize.

4. In the File Name box, choose the document that contains the styles
   you want to import, and then choose the OK button.

5. In the Text Styles dialog box, choose the Close button.

Publisher brings all of the styles from that document into your
publication, and displays them in the style list.

MORE INFORMATION
================

If while you are copying a style Publisher tells you that the same
style is in both publications, your publication contains a style that
has the same name as a style you are trying to import. This means the
style you are importing could replace the style already in your
publication. Choose Yes if you want to keep the style in your current
publication, or choose No if you want to replace the original style
with the style you're importing.

For more information about using styles in Publisher, see the following
topics in the MSPUB.HLP Help file included with Publisher 2.0:

 - What is a Style?
 - Creating a Style the Quick Way
 - Creating a Style from Scratch
 - Applying or Removing a Style from Text
 - Changing or Renaming a Style
 - Deleting a Style from Your Publication

Also, see pages 188 to 195 in the "Microsoft Publisher User's Guide."
