Style Behavior in Master Documents and Subdocuments

If you open a subdocument from within a master document, the subdocument utilizes all the styles stored in the master document's template. If you open it separately and make style changes or apply a different template, your subdocument reflects those style changes as long as you're editing it outside the master document. However, if you save it, open the master document, and reopen the subdocument, you'll find that the master document's styles now take precedence wherever they conflict. If you insert an existing document into a master document, and the existing document is based on a different template, once again the master document's template takes precedence.

If you create a new style within a subdocument, and later open that subdocument from within the master document, your new style is listed in the master document as well. However, if the style is based on a style which looks different in the master and subdocuments, text formatted with the new style may also look different depending on whether you're working on it in the master document or in a separate subdocument editing window.
