Just wrote this note for a client. Thought I would share it with you.
- Templates: Have content and style. E.g. A standard index for a type of map to be used as the starting point for each map. You can create a template from an existing map.
- Styles: Apply topic and font style to map elements which are still in their default state. (All) elements will have to be returned to their default state to apply a new style. You can create a style from an existing map. Check the map style sheet to make sure the styles you want saved are the default for the map.
- Map Parts: Assemblies of topics with their style which can be saved from the current map and added to other maps from the Map Parts pane.
- Topic Style: Created from an existing topic. Can then be applied to another topic on the same map. Useful for highlighting or applying emphasis to a topic with shape and colours. Does not have an organiser like Templates, Styles and Map Parts. Will only work on one map. Can be saved in a Template and will be available in maps created from the template.
