Transfer styles when upgrading

When upgrading from one major version to the next (e.g. v9 to v10), the styles should be converted and transferred as well. Right now it's a major pain to manually recreate the styles in the new version.

    The more I tried to work around this, the worse it got. The plist file gets overwritten, even if I rename it to the name v10 uses. When trying to manually copy styles from v9 to v10 on the same machine, I can't keep the style setting window open in v9 when moving focus to v10. To work around this, I tried installing v9 on a laptop, then copy the v9 plist file to the laptop as well, but that one also gets reset automatically as soon as I open v9.

    Now for something really strange... if I create a style on the v9 that doesn't have any styles, it's in the v9 plist as expected. If I then delete the plist file or overwrite it, v9 recreates the plist file with that one style in it. So SF actually gets the styles from somewhere else! I can't for the life of me figure out from where, though. Tried deleting caches, that didn't help.

    Someone, somewhere, seems to have spent considerable effort to stop us from reusing our styles over versions, and even between machines. Why, oh why...

    It took me a couple of hours to recreate the styles in v10, but now I fear for v11. It's not exactly an encouragement to upgrade.

      Tisons We are investigating implementation. Workarounds may not be reliable.

      CraigS Thank you! Great news! I'll very much enjoy that once v11 comes around.
