- To create a user stylesheet, select one of the stylesheets and then .
- If this is the first time that you have created a user stylesheet or stitch library and the 'Namespace' value has not yet been set, the Configure Namespace dialog will prompt you to enter a 'namespace' value.
The 'namespace' is an identifier that is used to label the stitch libraries and stylesheets that you create. It is important to choose a value that is unique to you to make it easier to share stitch libraries and stylesheets with others. For more information on choosing a namespace see What's a namespace?.
It is possible to change the namespace later but it is not possible to apply such a change to any existing stylesheets or stitch libraries.
Enter a value for namespace and then select .
The appropriate Stylesheet dialog opens. The example below shows a Text Templates stylesheet.
Name contains a generated name. If desired, type in a different name. The combination of name and namespace must be unique as these are used for the alias that is referenced from a .knt2 file. It is NOT possible to change the name of a stylesheet at a later date as this would invalidate the alias.
Namespace defaults to the current namespace value. It is NOT possible to change this value as this would invalidate the alias.
Description is copied from the original stylesheet. If desired this text can be edited. It is possible to edit it later.
For Text Templates stylesheet only: Language is copied from the original stylesheet. This is used to correctly translate numbers into words if requested in a template. If desired select another language. It is possible to edit it later.
For details of editing the remaining values for each stylesheet see Editing a user stylesheet.
