You must save a stylesheet before you can use it to convert a source file or associate it with a report. To use the Report Explorer to save a stylesheet:
Select the stylesheet that you want to save in the Outline pane on the left.
Select File > Save As from the menu bar and specify a new name for the stylesheet (to avoid overwriting built-in stylesheets). You must save the file in a folder in your MATLAB® path for the stylesheet to appear in the Report Explorer. The file name must be unique in the MATLAB path.
By convention, MATLAB Report Generator™ stylesheets have .rgs as their file name extension.
To use the Report Explorer to delete a stylesheet that you created:
Select the stylesheet that you want to delete in the Outline pane on the left.
Click the stylesheet to delete from the Options pane in the middle.
Click Delete stylesheet in the stylesheet's Properties pane on the right.
You must restart the MATLAB software session for deleted stylesheets to disappear from the Options pane.
