Reverting an inherited format
If an inherited format is overridden, reverting restores the format to the style inherited from the parent skin.
- On the Component styles tab of the Skin rule form, click the My Formats tab in the Formats section.
- Select the format that you want to revert.
- On the Standard tab at the right side of the form, click Actions > Revert to inherited.
- Skin rules
Use the skin to specify the presentation of your content. You can style all presentation elements of your interface in the skin, including typography, borders, backgrounds, layouts, and the placement and alignment of elements.
- Skin inheritance
Skin inheritance allows formats and mixins of a parent skin to be inherited by a dependent skin. The formats inherited by the dependent skin do not have to be explicitly defined in the dependent skin but will defined by formats in the parent skin. When a format on the parent skin is modified, the dependent skin automatically inherits those changes
- Adding a parent skin
You can add a parent to an existing skin. When you add a parent to a skin, the skin becomes dependent on the parent and inherits styles and formats from the parent. If the parent skin is changed, those changes are inherited by the dependent skin.
- Creating a new dependent skin
When you create a new skin, you can add a parent skin. The new skin becomes dependent on the parent and inherits the parent's formats and mixins. If the parent skin is changed, those changes are inherited by the dependent skin.
- Overriding an inherited format
You can override inherited formats in a dependent style to make an exception to the inherited styling.
- Viewing the skin inheritance stack
The Inheritance tab of the Skin rule form lists the names, and the sequence of, the parent and dependent skins.
