The Project Merge tool (File|Merge) allows you to import styles from another help project.

 

You can use the Import Styles feature if you need to import individual styles from an existing help project into the current help project, or if you maintain different help projects and need to use the same set of styles in each of them.

Importing Existing Styles


The Project Merge tool allows you to control how to import styles that already exist in the destination help project:

Do not overwrite - existing styles will be ignored.

Overwrite existing - existing styles will be overwritten by using the formatting settings of the styles from the source help project.

Import as new - existing styles will be imported as new styles with re-defined names.
