Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to show user-defined styles; otherwise, false.

This property corresponds to the Hide built-in name when alternate name exists check box in the Style Pane Options dialog box.

Setting the FormattingShowUserStyleName property to true hides built-in styles when alternate user-defined styles exist. For example, if a user creates a heading style with the same name as a built-in style, the user-defined style takes precedence and the built-in style is not shown in the list of style names.
