I have a two sets of custom .style files that I would like to have ArcMap load every time I open the program. (Ex: the thematic color ramps from Color Brewer.) It's a small thing but I don't want to have to manually add them every time.

Is there a workaround for this?

It is under Customize > Style Manager > Styles..., and then I just needed to click "Set as Default List."

To read more about this see Referencing styles in a map document in the ArcMap Online Help.
