XF 1.x A couple of problems about styles

Greetings. I think I made a few mistakes. Here is what I do:

A few days ago I created child styles from Apex. There was 6 styles. I installed them as you instructed on the Installation Guide.

Today I wanted to reset child styles to default and imported apex.xml and overwrite "child" styles.

QUESTION 1: This makes child styles to become indepentend?

Then when I entered style properties I saw there is "Reset" choices which means they looks like edited. And I clicked Customized Style Components and "Reverted All Items" there. Here are the what I mean:

But after this all of my styles become looks like XenBase. All of them.

QUESTION 2: This action is possible to revert back?
When we create a new style it's ID become after the last one. For example if latest installed style's ID is 12, new style will be with the ID 13.

So, is it possible to reset all style IDs? What I mean is I delete all styles except the default which's ID is 1. When I install a style it's ID will be 2 instead of 13, 14, 15...

Can't reset ID's number that I know of, probably best to ask on the official forums as there may be a SQL query you're able to run.

If you click revert all properties on APEX yes it will go back to the XenBase look. Essentially you never edit XenBase / Apex once it's installed. The only changes you want to make would be in child styles.

So, I overwrite child styles via .xml. They become independent style or still child style?

Not sure I understand the question unfortunately. You really shouldn't check the "Export as independent style" box when exporting styles using our setup. Essentially what that does and exports every single XenBase and Fusion Gamer customization along with your child style edits into a single style. You'll never be able to upgrade properly.

I'd honestly start from scratch regarding the styles and do exactly like the install instructions and my post above.
