The Style Builder dialog lets you set Text, Background, Edges and Line Style for any given report item including sections and the report as a whole. The dialog is accessed through the Style property ellipses button and is also used in conditional formatting. The dialog lets you change several style elements at one time and see the result in the Preview pane at the bottom of the dialog.
To use the Style Builder dialog choose a style element from the list on the left of the dialog. Change style characteristics in the area to the right of the list. Click the OK button to apply the style changes or the Cancel to leave the previous style untouched.
