I wasn’t sure how to word the title here. The basis of my question is just wondering if there’s a way to force the style settings that have been established (with Glulx Text Effects, for example) to “reset” or be “reapplied” if they are lost.
I know that in the Glulx Text Effects extension there is a rule about:
Before starting the virtual machine (this is the sort the Table of User Styles rule)
And then, within that, phrases like:
now the background color in row row1 of the Table of User Styles is the background color entry.
I tried to simply put those statements in one of my own rules such that if styles got lost, I could call that rule and run those phrases as they were run when the VM started up. That, however, does not appear to work.
I don’t know any other way to describe this other than “resetting” or “reapplying” the rules related to styling. So far the only two cases where I’ve observed the problem happening is when a
restart command is given or when the screen is cleared.
