Hi there!  I am trying to figure out if I can add styles to Pro so that they are available for all new projects.  I'm finding having to add the same styles to every project to be inefficient.  And I'm still working on establishing templates, so that may be the workaround but I figure there's gotta be a way to add styles to the system defaults.  Thanks!  And I haven't found this question yet, so sorry if it's been asked, just direct me there.

The workaround I used was adding the folder where the style file was stored to my favorites, and then whenever I need it all you have to do is right click on it and select "Add Style". 

If there is a more "permanent" way to do this I'd love to know as well! Using templates does not necessarily work for every situation.

That works, thanks for that!  Hopefully there's a way to add to the system styles so we don't have that extra step to go through just as you said,  "Using templates does not necessarily work for every situation."

Thanks Katherine!
