    Copying paragraph styles between documents

    Dan Macy

      I have a document that contains some text that I want to copy to another document. The original text is tagged with a paragraph style called Body. If the document that I'm copying into already has a paragraph style called Body defined, then when I copy the text into this document, it applies its Body paragraph style to the text I'm copying into it. Is there a way to copy the text and maintain the text styling from the original document (overriding the paragraph style in the receiving document)?

       

      I am using InDesign CS5.

       

      Thanks!
