[JS] How to break link to paragraph style from script?

Apr 14, 2009 12:47 AM

I don't found the command break link to paragraph style from script.

I want "unapply" the style from the text, but leave the formatting intact.


Can help me?

    In the interface it's a separate command ("Break link to style"), but it seems in a script you have to use


    Paragraph.applyParagraphStyle (using:ParagraphStyle[, clearingOverrides:bool=true])


    You cannot use "null" or something similar for "ParagraphStyle", so I guess the idea is to use paragraph style #0 in your document (which is always "[No Paragraph Style]"). Be sure to set "clearing Overrides" to false, as it defaults to true.

    The following single line works on your current paragraph:


    app.activeDocument.selection[0].paragraphs[0].applyParagraphStyle (app.activeDocument.paragraphStyles[0], false);
