You can only create, delete, and apply plot styles in a named plot style table. You can define as many or as few plot styles as you need in a drawing.
Named plot styles are assigned to objects and layers in the same way that linetype and color are assigned to objects.
You can add, delete, rename, and copy plot styles in a named plot style table using the Plot Style Table Editor.
One additional named plot style table is installed for you to use beyond the default plot style table. All named plot style tables have an .stb extension.
If you delete the mapping table, the plot style table becomes an ordinary plot style table and is no longer useful for applying plot styles to old drawings.
