How do you apply a theme to all existing Sheets?

Hi,

I noticed that when you set a default theme, it only affects the new sheets you create.

If you have many sheets already, or that you want to try different themes, the manual approach seems unrealistic.

How do you apply a theme to all existing Sheets?

If it is not possible, is there a way to modify consistently the look and feel of all the sheets simultaneously?

Thanks

-Nick

Will this apply to newly created sheets?

Hi Nathaniel,

No, applying a theme through Layout will only apply it to existing sheets.  To apply a theme to sheets that have not yet been created you need to go to Settings \ Document Properties \ Presentation and set the Default Theme For New Objects.

You can also set a theme for every new object in every future document you create, under Settings \ User Preferences \ Design \ Default Theme.

Hope that helps.

Brilliant, thanks. I think the two options you described can also be set on the 5th step of the Theme Maker Wizard. Agree? :

I was expecting these settings to affect the .QVT file, but they don't. I suppose this makes sense. These settings are kind of "meta"/"larger" than what can be expressed in QVT.

Hi Nathaniel,

That is correct.  It's a handy way of using the theme as soon as you have created it.
