To append style sheets, colors, H&Js, lists, or dashes & stripes from one file to another:

1.
Open the file you want to append the style sheets, colors, H&Js, lists, or dashes & stripes to.

2.
Choose File > Append (Cmd-Option-A/Ctrl-Alt-A).

or

Click Append in the Style Sheets, Colors, H&Js, Lists, or Dashes & Stripes dialog box.

3.
Locate and highlight the name of the file that contains the components that you want to append, then click Open. You can append from a library.

4.
Click the Style Sheets, Colors, H&Js, Lists, or Dashes & Stripes tab. If a tab isn't there, it means the document you're appending from doesn't contain any custom components in that category.

5.
In the Available column on the left side, click the name of the style sheet, color, H&J, list, or dashes & stripes style you want to append .

Appending style sheets

To append multiple components, click the first component in a series of consecutively-listed components, then Shift-click the last in the series. Or Cmd-click/Ctrl-click to select/deselect individual components.

6.
Click the right-pointing Append Items arrow .

7.
Click OK. If a warning prompt appears, click OK again . Check Do Not Show This Warning Again if you don't want to see it again.

Figure 3. Click OK when this warning prompt appears.

If an appending component has the same name as a component in the file you're appending to, the Append Conflict dialog box will open. Do one of the following for each conflict that arises:

Note: To have the same response be applied automatically to any remaining conflicts, check Repeat For All Conflicts before clicking Rename, Auto-Rename, Use New, or Use Existing.

To keep the existing component, append the new component, and rename an individual component yourself, click Rename , type a new name, then click OK.

or

To have an asterisk be inserted automatically next to the name of any appending component that has a match in the open, destination document, click Auto-Rename.

or

To replace the existing item with the appending component, click Use New .

or

To cancel the append of that item, click Use Existing .

9.
Click OK.

Quick-and-dirty append

If text to which a style sheet or sheets have been applied is pasted from another document using the Clipboard, drag-copied from another document, or retrieved from a library, the style sheet or sheets will be appended—barring any name conflicts. Colors and H&Js can also be appended this way.
