You can reference a style resource document from any template or document.

  1. Click File > Open and open the document to which you want to add a style resource.

  2. Click Format > Style.

  3. In the Style dialog box, click Resources.

  4. In the Style Resources dialog box, click Add.

  5. In the Add Style Resources dialog box, select the name of the style resources document that you want to add to the template, and then click Open.

  6. In the Style Resources dialog box, click OK.

  7. In the Style dialog box, click Apply and then click Close.

  8. On the Draw toolbar, select Line/Arc Continuous .

  9. In the Style list, select a line style. Each line style that you select will be imported to the new file.

  10. Click Format > Style.

  11. In the Style dialog box, click Resources.

  12. In the Style Resources dialog box, select the style resource document you previously added and click Remove.

  13. Click OK to close the Style Resources and Style dialog boxes.

  14. When you close the document, click OK when you are prompted to indicate whether or not you want to save changes to the document.

  15. The styles in the style resource document are referenced from the template or document that you just saved. If you open a document that references a style resource document, the styles in the style resource document will be available on the Styles list of the current document's ribbon. If you open a document that is based on a template with references to style resource documents, the styles will also be available in the same manner. You can then apply the styles in the style resource document to elements or annotations in the current document.

    The line styles are copied from the style resource document into the current document. The font styles are not copied. So, if you want another person to be able to view the same fonts in the document and that person's system does not have the same fonts installed, you should give that person a copy of the fonts along with the document.

Sometimes you might attach several style resource documents that contain styles with duplicate names. In these cases, the style in the style resource document that is listed first in the Style Resources list takes precedence and will be listed on the ribbon of the active document.
