How do you unlink paragraph style in alternate layout?

I created an alternate layout that was basically half the size as the original and now all my paragraph styles in the child have type sizes that look like this - 9 pt(5.5). It is quite problematic, because when I try to use that type style in the child, it obviously uses the parent size (9) but it if I try to change the style to have type size 5.5 then all of the existing type with that style changes to half that size (so about 2.5ish). I have since deleted the parent layout because I no longer needed it, but I would like to keep the paragraph styles just in case I need them in the future. How do I unlink/modify the child paragraph styles??


Not to mention... when I am in the child version extending an original text box to correct overset type the type size is 9 instead of 5.5 like the rest of the linked text boxes? So basically I've got one story, different type sizes and if I try to correct one type size it updates the other to be different.


Thanks in advance!

    If you want to lose the linking of text and creating new paragraph style groups, uncheck those options in the Create Alternate Layout dialog box.
