In the ‘old days’ (I’ve been a RW user since version 3) it was good practice to work on a copy of a Theme.
So I used to Duplicate a Theme in RW (not the Finder) before starting to make changes to its settings/values… I would typically prepend a space and indicate the Theme’s name with a meaningful prefix.
So, for instance, I’d make a duplicate of ‘Expose’ as ‘ BrightonCoffee_Expose’.
It all works/worked well.
The disadvantage, of course, is that I have two versions of the same Theme, and only the original gets updated when a new version is released… ‘Expose’ but not ‘ BrightonCoffee_Expose’.
So I’ve decided to stop working on duplicates and just use (RW) Styles to customize Themes instead.
How do I transfer the Styles in the Duplicate(s) which I made (back) into the original Themes?
I can easily save the (Duplicate Theme’s) Master Style using the cog…
But when I try get it back into the non-Duplicate Theme (so that it can be updated) using the dropdown in Settings > Master Style to find my Style file, it’s not there.
Changing what I take to be the Theme Name line in the XML in BBEdit to try and force the Style values to apply to the non-duplicate version of the Theme hasn’t so far worked, either.
Can it be done, please?
