Hello and welcome to the forum,
Could you explain this 'at the global settings level and not project....'? What did you change? Normally you'll have to change the object style of the highlight box:
If you do this without opening the first CP-file, the style will be applied to all your new projects while recording.
Thank you Lilybiri, this is perfect. When I said global, it's precisely what you mentioned - without opening the first CP-file. I didn't know you can set things globally in the Object Style Manager.
If I am changing the object styles for my existing project, styles are reflected for the same project recordings. We can export the preferences and use it by importing into other projects.
My query is: How can I get the same object styles for my next projects, without changing the style values before recording. For example, when I create a software simulation, the caption style becomes HaloBlue, then I have to change it into Ivory style on each slides.
I want that the default caption style for my project should be Ivory. Please suggest.
5.5 has a Default Capture Caption Style in the Text Caption Styles, set it to Ivory before opening a project and it will be used for future projects
You can also export your Object Styles either individually, as part of a style group, or all styles at once.
Then you can import those Object Styles into another project and set the option to overwrite styles with the same name.
I prefer to have a set of custom styles with unique names and use those in my templates rather than the default object styles.
Thanks Lilybiri and RodWard, I can configure the default caption setting for my future projects.
