Zip files (many examples) – just save as normal then you open them. We can use individual files but it is easier to zip them together. Also some computers try to open a straight file with the wrong application as they are XML files.
There is a new file for text styles, you can use this as a basic method to copy/paste styles into new boxes (or clone them).

NOTE: on XML file renaming by system: sometimes on single downloads, the new file extension we use (name.sto) causes Windows to think it is an XML file (it is actually), and tries to open an XML editor; if you then select a new program (Story Lite) to open it, it changes the extension to .sto.xml
This is obviously very silly, so please just “Save” the file, then double click on it to open it in Story Lite.
We are looking into a way to stop it opening an XML editor.
Zip files (many examples) just save as normal then you open them.
