System Styles

System styles are used when creating custom reports. They include font, font size, and alignment. Use this page to add styles, edit styles, and set style defaults.

Fonts are an important part of how your custom reports look. Perhaps you like report titles to be in large, bold, capital letters. Or perhaps you prefer that footer text be small and italicized. PowerSchool provides several styles you can use so that you don't have to set these preferences each time. Or create new styles according to your own preferences and needs. If you do not want to create styles at this point, you can still create reports. For more information, refer to Report Cards.
