Statutory Reporter comes with a set of default report style options, or style sets. These options control the look of your reports, including fonts, colour, spacing and ruled lines. You can set up your own style sets so that your reports have a consistent look-and-feel that reflects your practice.

You can either clone an existing style set (which will allow you to create a style set based on an existing style set), or you can create a new style set from the default settings.

To create a new style set by cloning an existing style set
  1. Select Maintenance > Maintenance Map (AO) > Client Accounting > Practice Report Settings. The Practice Report Settings page opens.
  2. Select Practice Style Sets from the TASKS bar. The Practice Style Sets window opens. For MYOB AO, if you don’t have the Practice Style Sets option on your TASKS bar, contact Support to enable this feature.

  4. Select a style set to clone from the drop-down list. The list will include all master style sets as well as your saved practice style sets.

    1. Select the style name style in the left panel. The style’s settings will display in the right panel.

Report styles

Each part of each report has an associated style. For example, there are styles for page headings, section headings, descriptions, balances, total lines and so on. These styles are grouped by Style types, which define the properties that make up the style.

The following table lists the styles and describes the way they are used in the reports.

Styles are not used in the same way across all reports. Some trial and error may be required to identify the exact style used for each report component.
