Sheet settings in Title Block Styles

Question

When I create a new sheet layer and drop in a title block style the title block border settings for margins and grids in that style are not copied through, resulting in tedious changes to each individual sheet.

 

Am I missing something?

It depends on the settings within that style - each option within a style is set to By Instance or By Style. You could edit the style, choose the options you want, and then set them to By Style. Then apply the style. The settings are fixed by the style and not changeable. Leave things you want to be able to change on each Sheet to By Instance.

Hi Tamsin,

 

I can't find the option for 'by instance' or 'by style' when I edit the style plug-in object.  Can you tell me where to find those settings?

 

Thanks

From the Style pull down in the Object Info Pallet choose Edit Style...

 

In the attached image, the Data and Page Number are set to be By Style. Everything else is set to By Instance. The Icon which is also a button tells you which type the item is.

 

Swap between the two by clicking on the icon in the row to the left of the field name.
