Be sure to rate this article 5 Stars if you find it helpful!

A Style is simply a Condition saved to the database for use in other Bids - sort of Condition Template. There are four system Styles: Linear, Area, Count, and Attachment. These system Styles cannot be changed.

The Condition Style Library contains every saved Style in the current database. You can modify or delete Condition Styles at any time, provided it is not used in a "Style Set". Changing a Style does not affect any Conditions created from the Style. When a Condition is saved as a Style it automatically becomes part of the Style Library but is not added to any Style Set automatically.

Note - Condition Type
In the previous article, we encouraged you to set a Condition Type for each Condition and each Style you create. Notice that the Style Library is grouped (automatically) by Condition Type to make it much easier to use.

A Style Set contains multiple Styles organized into logical groups. Style Sets allow a user to quickly create numerous Conditions, based on the saved Styles, to a Bid.

To learn more about creating Conditions, saving Conditions as a Styles, and setting up Style Sets, see Related articles.

Remember, a Style is simply a saved Condition and a Style Set is just a group of Styles (saved Conditions) that can be added to a Bid all at the same time.

See Related Articles and the articles that follow for details on creating, editing, and using Styles and Style Sets.
