User Style

It is possible to overwrite how tags change the style of a paragraph and introduce new inline tags. Inline tags are used within a paragraph, such as <b>. All style properties that can be set are listed below in the Style Properties section. The following user style makes the bold tag also add an underscore.

{ “b”: 
  { “underscore”: true }

The type <Integer, String> is a dictionary with Integer as key and String as value. It is used when mapping the level of a list to a specific style or string/symbol. The level of a list starts at 0, with no indent. The following user style sets the style of a numbered list to use Arabic numbers at no indent, Roman numbers at one indent, and alphabetic letters at two indents.

{ “ol”: 
  { “bulletStyle”: 
      “0”: “1.”, 
      “1”: ”i.”,
      “2”: “a.”
