wrong style for element notes
« on: November 22, 2017, 11:02:08 am »
I don't understand how and if it is possible to change the style for all the notes associated to elements, packages, diagrams etc within a generated document.
I realize that the standard style for notes is normal style let say times new roman + 10 size.
I tried  to change the note style within the used template but it doens't work
I read somewhere that the base style is derived from the cover template, but it is not clear how to change these styles...
even if I do not use any cover the problem is there
and even if i flag the checkbox : "use style defined in template for notes" nothing change.
Could you help?

Fausto,

The best way to deal with this (and one that works) is to create a stylesheet and use that.

This way you only have to define the styles once and they get used in your entire document.

The only snag I found was the "normal" style, which wasn't behaving normally (pun intended). The only workaround I found was to create my own "myNormal" style and don't use the "normal" at all.

NOT using the "Normal" style is a lesson soon learned by ANY serious Word user.
