The Styles tab is divided into two sections: My Styles and Tenant Styles. Global Styles are not listed here. Styles created/modified/uploaded by the designer user will be listed in the My Styles section. Styles created/modified/uploaded by the initial tenant admin will show in the Tenant Styles section. Styles created/uploaded by additional admins in a tenant will not display here.
Styles are not included in the zipfile when you download a form, workflow or project. Styles must be manually moved from your test/development server to your production environment. You do this by selecting Download from the menu for each style you want to move from your test/development server and then selecting Upload from the Add menu in the styles tab on your production server.
