Chapter 21. STYLES > Using Parent and Child Styles

Using Parent and Child Styles

FreeHand also offers the ability to base one style on another. FreeHand calls the relationship between these styles Parent and Child.

To create Parent and Child styles:

1.
Define two object styles or two text styles in the Styles panel.

TIP

To make it easier to understand Parent/ Child styles, define only one difference (for instance, stroke weight or point size) to the second style.

2.
Select the second style and choose Set parent from the Options pop-up menu of the Styles panel. The Set Parent dialog box appears 10.

Figure 10. The Set Parent dialog box allows you to base one style on another.


3.
In the Set Parent dialog box, choose the first style as the parent. Click OK. The two styles are now linked as Parent and Child.
