Defining a new mixin

To create a new mixin, click Add. The mixin is populated with default values.

If you want to create a new mixin that:

  • inherits from another mixin, right-click the mixin from which you want to inherit styles, and then click Clone with inheritance. You can override inherited text elements, if desired, and remove inheritance and add styles as desired.
  • is a copy of an existing mixin (but does not inherit styles from that mixin), right-click the mixin that you want copy and then click Clone.

Specify the overall font

Select an Overall Font: to use as the default font for all mixins in this skin.

As a best practice, use the Overall Font when defining mixins. If you define the presentation of components using mixins that reference the Overall Font, then you can change the font used throughout the skin in a single location.
