I am upgrading a project from RH9 to RH2015 and want to use a new style sheet with completely different specs. However, this project is quite large, and it seems that I have to change the style sheet for each individual topic.

Is there a way to do a "global" style sheet change?

Doing that is easy. Just select all the topics in the Topic List, right click and select Properties. Changing the CSS is one of the properties that can be changed there.

The thing to watch is style names. If a used style in your old CSS does not have the same name (including case), then after the change the topic will not be able to apply the style name.

In the Edit ribbon, if you select content that has a style name that is not in the CSS, it will appear in CAPS. Enjoy moving the cursor down the paragraphs of each topic to find such styles.

Might I suggest a backup first?

Much thanks to both of you. As I read your instructions, it occurred to me that I had actually done this before, albeit long ago.

Looks like I could mark only one answer correct, although both are right on the money!

Thanks, Pete and Rick!
