About graphic styles

A graphic style is a set of reusable appearance attributes. Graphic styles allow you to quickly change the look of an object; for example, you can change its fill and stroke color, alter its transparency, and apply effects in one step. All the changes you apply with graphic styles are completely reversible...

Graphic Styles panel overview

You use the Graphic Styles panel (Window > Graphic Styles) to create, name, and apply sets of appearance attributes. The panel lists a default set of graphic styles when you create a document. Graphic styles that are saved with the active document appear in the panel when that document is open and active...

Create graphic styles

Select an object and apply any combination of appearance attributes, including fills and strokes, effects, and transparency settings.

You can use the Appearance panel to adjust and order the appearance attributes and create multiple fills and strokes. For example, you can have three fills in a graphic style, each with a different opacity and blending mode that defines how the various colors interact.

Do any of the following:

  • Click the New Graphic Style button in the Graphic Styles panel. 
  • Select New Graphic Style from the panel menu, type a name in the Style Name box, and click OK. 
  • Drag the thumbnail from the Appearance panel (or the object from the illustration window) into the Graphic Styles panel. 
  • Alt‑click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the New Graphic Style button, enter the name of the graphic style, and click OK... Adobe® help article
