Saved Style Commands

With a Saved Style selected, you can make use of these commands:

Commands available for a Saved Style, including Remove, Apply, and Select
Remove (Style)
Deletes the Style. Be careful: because Saved Styles are shared between books, this will affect any other book that uses this style.
Select Original Style
Selects the original style that was used to create this Saved Style.
Apply to Original Style
Applies all values in the Saved Style to the original style. You can use this command to make a new Saved Style based on these settings.
