     Hi All,

     Sorry about the repeat, but Nathan felt I was hijacking his thread.

     If there are going to be modifications done to styling, please
     consider adding a feature whereby the various styles chosen or
     experimented with, are auto-saved for that mapsheet (perhaps in your
     project files).

     I find when editing, edge-matching or QAing various mapsheets, I
     want to easily switch between styles - I might choose "single
     symbol" for the map I am editing, but "rule-based" for the adjoining
     maps. Rule based choices would change depending on scenarios, so it
     does not make sense to save a rule-based set (I could end up with
     too many).

     So, what I am seeking is the ability to switch between the 5 style
     categories, and not lose the ones I may have set up a few minutes
     ago. If I close QGIS, and come back to the project later, I would
     like to see the last styles I had set up for a mapsheet, still be
     available when I click through the style options.

     Hope I'm making myself clear.

     Thanks & regards,
