saving color ramps

Downloaded color ramp 2 from the ArcGIS resources. Currently I have to browse via style manager and load it each time I want to use it. Is there a way to make it part of the permanent collection of color ramps available in ArcMap?



Mapping Center Answer:

Our quickest remedy is to copy (not drag and drop) and paste the selection of desired color ramps into your personal style. That way they will load automatically each and every time with your permanent collection. Your personal style should be in your style manager listing as the first in the list.

In our next full version of software you will have the the option to change the default set of styles that are always referenced when a new map document is opened. So, you will be able to add your pick of any selection of styles.
