In a Smart Style you define the paragraph and character formats, which you can then assign to texts and fields in the Smart Form. You maintain a Smart Style in the Style Builder.
You must assign a Smart Style to each Smart Form. You do this globally for the entire Smart Form in the form attributes. In addition, you can assign a Smart Style locally to a node, for example, a text node . This assignment then applies for the entire subtree and overrules the global settings.
A Smart Style contains:
Header data containing the default values of a Smart Style
Paragraph formats including indents and spacing, font attributes, tabs, and outline and numbering
Character formats including effects superscript, subscript, barcode and font attributes
Colors and underlines for a paragraph or character format
You can convert an existing SAPscript style into a Smart Style
The initial Smart Styles screen appears.
Enter the style name.
To create a Smart Style choose Create.
To activate an exisiting Smart Style choose Activate.
Before you can use a Smart Style in a Smart Form and transport it, you must activate it. During the activation the system checks the Smart Style for errors and, if it detects any, displays an error list.
