Kathy

Thank you @SJRiegel !
Is there anyway to have them load automatically vs loading them for each new document?

If you create styles without having any documents open, the new documents will have these styles (but not the existing documents).

@jmlevy YES! That is what I'd like. How do I create the styles without any documents open?

Just open the paragraph styles panel and create the styles you want.

Well, with no document open, go to the Paragraph Styles panel and use the option "Load All Text Styles…".

You can do that from a document or even an IDML file that contains the styles.
