Add a possibility to establish a link between the document and a certain style

Introduce a possibility to establish a link between the document and a certain style would be very convenient in some cases. If you have multiple documents that apply the same custom styling which is not the default styling and you want to make a change to this custom styling, then a link would avoid having to re-apply the styling to all those separate documents.

Interesting idea.

To be further investigated:

  • how to reconcile this with the current design of the styling system, which combines a cascade of different styles at different levels (system default -> customer -> department -> user -> document -> file -> individual instance) into the final style that actually gets applied;

  • what happens when the source style gets deleted?

  • what if the document gets transferred to another account (or other database), where the source style does not exist?
