Chapter 8. Extreme Makeover: Symbols, Br... > Breaking a Link to a Style

Breaking a Link to a Style

If you have applied a graphic style to a number of objects and later redefine the style in the Appearance palette (Window>Appearance), all the objects will update to the new style (they do not have to be selected). You can also ensure one object does not change from the original style by breaking the link to the style. Select the one object you don’t want to change and click on the broken chain icon at the bottom of the Graphic Styles palette (Window>Graphic Styles). Now, if you change the settings for the graphic style in the Appearance palette and choose Redefine Graphic Style from the Appearance palette’s flyout menu, the unlinked graphic will not change. There is no re-link icon, so you’ll have to reapply the graphic style by selecting the object and clicking on the style in the Graphic Styles palette.
