Resetting the appearance of items

You can reset all changes you have made to the appearance of individual items, which returns them to the default settings. For some items, you can do this for the current layout and frame chain only or for all layouts and frame chains.

Properties relating to the appearance of items include those that change their style, type, and some additions, such as poco a poco text for dynamics.
