How do I share my PerfectIt style with my organization?

There are two ways to share your style:

Share the Style File

The fastest way to share a style is to export the style file and put it in a shared location where others can download it and import it into PerfectIt. This method is great for small teams and situations such as a project where you need to share the style quickly.

The first step is to export your custom style from PerfectIt. Click "Manage Styles" in the PerfectIt 5 tab:

Click Manage Styles in the PerfectIt4 tab

Select the style you wish to export from the "Current style sheet" dropdown list, and click "Export":

Select style and click Export

Choose whether you want to allow the users you share your style with to edit it or not:

Choose whether to allow users to edit the style

Choose a filename and location, and click "Save".

Put the PFT file in a shared location. Members of your team can then download it and import it into their copy of PerfectIt by following these instructions.


Build the Style Into Your Packaged Updates with the Online Style Manager

If you're an Enterprise user you may prefer to share your custom style as part of the installation of PerfectIt updates. You can set that up using the Style Manager in the Members Area of the Intelligent Editing website. When used in conjunction with a packaged installation from your IT team, this will ensure that everyone in your organization has the same style. Here's how to do that:

Upload Your Custom Style to the Style Manager

First, export your custom style following the instructions above.

Then, log in to the Members Area of the Intelligent Editing website and click on the "Style Manager" tab:

Click on the Style Manager tab

Either click the "Upload Style Files" button and select the style you wish to share, or drag the file into the "Upload Style Files" area. You can upload multiple styles at a time.

Once the style has finished uploading it will appear at the bottom of the page:

Uploaded styles are listed at the bottom of the page

From here you can set the default style for your organization – details of how to do that can be found here.
