In order to create a new style sheet, open the Style sheets activity and click the ' + ' sign.
There is a tab for each chart type where you can click and edit elements similarly to how you would in a chart in Analytics.
Once the charts look how you want them to, you can save the new style sheet by clicking Ctrl + S. You can also open the style sheet main menu and select 'Save chart style sheet as'. While saving a style sheet, you can also decide to define it as default for any new chart.
You can share a style sheet with your colleagues by saving it in Department or Company Account.
To move current style to editor select in upper menu Style sheet > Open in style sheet editor. This will copy the current settings from the chart to the style sheet. Unfortunately custom colors for lines won't be passed.
For settings in Bar charts, that may have several different configurations within the same chart, like separators between columns and graph area settings, the first relevant column will be used. Graph styles will be copied from the first eight graphs.
To apply the newly created style sheet in the Analytics activity, make sure that the chart you would like to change is selected in the analysis tree. Then, open the style sheet main menu at the top and select the name of the style sheet you would like to apply. If it's not there press 'Select chart style sheet' to see all style sheets saved on different accounts.
You can set your style sheet to appear on each newly created document. Go to any chart, open the style sheet main menu at the top and press Select chart style sheet. In new window select a style sheet and mark at the bottom 'Use as default for new charts'.
