What are graph styles?

Most of the numerous features that affect the appearance of the graph (from as elementary as the color of the font in the footnote to as general as the global features of the graph document) can be saved as individual "styles." These styles can be given custom names and later be reapplied using the Graphics Styles box on the left side of the Graph Tools toolbar or simple shortcuts (such as pressing a specific key combination or clicking a button on a custom toolbar). An intelligent system internally manages these thousands of styles and their combinations in STATISTICA and helps you achieve your customization objectives with a minimum amount of effort. All user-defined or modified styles will be saved automatically in the STATISTICA configuration file (e.g., different sets or systems of styles can be used for different projects). For further details, see the Configurations topic.
