3. Save the style.

Click Styles and enter a name for your style in the box labelled New style name such as Song Lyrics. Click Save. Proclaim saves all the properties of the text box or field.

Note: You can also open the Media Browser by selecting Browse Media from the Background drop-down menu.

In the Media Browser, select the template you want to apply.

3. Click Apply as Smart Media.

Proclaim applies the background and text styling to all your selected service items.

Note: When you apply a media item as Smart Media, Proclaim formats existing text boxes and fields to correspond to the text boxes and fields in the Smart Media. If your existing service item has additional text boxes or fields that are not in the Smart Media item, the text boxes or fields in your service item are eliminated.

Learn more about creating your own Smart Media templates here. You can also select a style as your default style for service items. Apply to additional items.

4. Repeat these steps for each type of service item you want to match.
