Hi Everyone,

Going back to the reason for my question, here is an example of the legacy content:

*"To create a new file, select New Highlight File from the pop-up menu in either the Highlight palette or the Define Highlight Styles dialog box. Enter a name for the new file and press OK. A new blank file is created in the correct folder.*"

So now here is what I've found out... unless you want to backup the file outside of the software, the user never sees a "new blank file in the correct folder." What they see is a new name for a set of styles stored in a list and displayed in a palette OR via the Display menu (Display>Highlight>select style) OR via a shortcut menu (a new concept that their users didn't have on MAC a few years ago).

So I'm handling THAT issue in a separate topic.

The Define Highlight Styles dialog box is opened via the Highlight palette (or two other commands).

So WHICH would YOU document (if not all of them)....

My head is spinning. The truth is, its dead simple if I can work ONLY from the Palette, or ONLY from the shortcut menu or ONLY from the Menu options (though this latter is more complex and I can't imagine why anyone would want to use that route).
