    How are you transitioning the files from CS2 to Cs6?

     

    Are you opening them in Cs6?

     

    Have you tried exporting the CS2 file to .inx and open that in CS6 (Not sure if CS6 can read inx files?)

     

    What formatting is being lost? Is it all styles, or certain styles? Is it paragraph or character styles?

     

     

    Can you please post a detailed report of your issue and it might be easier for people to help you

    OK, there are foced line breaks after each word in the second photo credit. I don't know how they got there, but I don't think ID would add them on its own.

     

    You are placing RTF exported from the CS2 files? Is that correct? Wha,t exactly is the workflow here, what are you tring to accomplish?

    Bear with me, please. I need a bit more clarification.

     

    It sounds like the only involvement with CS2 here is that the styles were used formerly in CS2, but all of the text now is originating in CS6. You are not trying to reuse text from CS2. You are not, for example, using a template that was creating in CS2. Is that correct?

     

    Have you tried recreating this style from scratch? How did you get the styles from CS2 to CS6?

    If InDesign was replacing spaces with a soft return (forced line break) then it would do it for every space in the document, not just a single line.

     

    There's something else at play here. As the first example is not the same text as the example with the incorrect cutline.

     

    It's hard to tell what's going on with 2 samples of different text.

    Put the InDesign file in a dropbox folder and post a link.

    We need the file the text came FROM.

    First thing to try is updating ID to 8.0.1. You're still at 8.0.0...
