How to use the graphic styles all in one go, multiple load

multiple graphic styles in one go tutorialIf you have a number of the sets and lots and lots of AI documents, you might like to create one super library of all the effects. Not particularly recommended as that will probably make quite a hit on the addons of AI but if you have a lot of memory and a super powerful machine you can always create that AI document. Just open a completely new AI document and then open each of the libraries in turn via the panel and then select all the live effects required (many are made up of fill / stroke / scribble combinations) and these will be added to the current open file. On finishing all the file sets, you can then save that file as a massive AI document of all the effects. I am not sure it is a great idea but I have been asked a number of times for this. Perhaps not so much the saving of the file (and it might corrupt) but I would imagine it will be fairly slow on opening - certainly slower than going to the individual files. Another option, and probably better, just place all the AI documents in the presets folder and then access the preset library (one of them) and at the bottom, you will see an arrow back and forward, you can click that to go from one AI document to another file and another set of effects. You can also use the search option though as the names as not particular descriptive so this might be of less use
