You can save type styles to files and then load them into other documents. This feature helps maintain consistency between documents, and lets you share type styles with other Canvas X Draw users.
Another way to transfer type styles from one document to another is to copy text that uses the style and paste the text into a different document. Canvas X Draw transfers the style with the text. When you save the document, Canvas X Draw also stores the transferred style.
A type style based on another style cannot inherit attributes across documents; e.g., Body2 is based on a parent style, Body1, and you copy only Body2 to a new document. Body2 in the new document no longer inherits attributes from Body1, which is still in the original document.
However, if you copy both Body1 and Body2 to a new document, the relationship is preserved, and Body2 will inherit attributes from its parent style.
If you happen to paste a style that already exists in the other document, Canvas X Draw modifies the name of the pasted style to avoid overriding type styles; e.g., a style named “Body 2” could become “Body 2 -2” when pasted in the new document.
