Deploying a new default style set

Rationale

When installing FS Pro 2013 you can include your custom style set(s) and set it to be the default style set for new documents. The Style set will be readonly to enforce consistency.

Note: This procedure requires that you use the SystemSettings.dat file. Please see http://support.informationmapping.com/hc/en-us/articles/202434381-FS-Pro-2013-Configuration-Options for more information. 

Solution

Proceed as follows:

Step

Action

1

Exit Word / FS Pro 2013.

2

Navigate to the folder for the custom style set that you wish to use. For example, it may be in:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Information Mapping\FS Pro 5.0\FontSet.<YourStyleSet>.dat, or

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Information Mapping\FS Pro 5.0\Settings\<YourStyleSet>\FontSet.<YourStyleSet>.dat

3

Copy your FontSet.<YourStyleSet>.dat file

4

Navigate to the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Information Mapping\FS Pro 5.0\Data

5

Paste your FontSet.<YourStyleSet>.dat file into this folder.

6

Edit the SystemSettings.dat file to contain the following setting:

<Setting>

<Name>DefaultFontSet</Name>

<Value>YourStyleSet</Value>

</Setting>

 

Replace “YourStyleSet” above with the name of your Custom Style Set.

7

Restart Word / FS Pro 2013.

 

Result: New documents should use your Custom-Starter Style Set.

8

If you wish to deploy multiple style sets you can repeat Step 6 for each one, for example:

 

<Setting>

<Name>DefaultFontSet</Name>

<Value>YourStyleSet1</Value>

</Setting>

<Setting>

<Name>DefaultFontSet</Name>

<Value>YourStyleSet2</Value>

</Setting>
