    How do I keep InCopy file from losing formatting after editing assignment in InDesign?

    Chinh Nguyen Community Member

      Writers have created assignments from an InCopy template built with paragraph styles, character styles and a text area width.

      Designers are importing these assignments into an InDesign template that uses the same paragraph styles and character styles.

      But if an imported assignment is edited in InDesign and then reopened in InCopy, the InCopy file only keeps the used paragraph styles and character styles and loses all others along with the fixed text area width that was created in the template?

      Which I don't want, how do I resolve this?

      Thanks!

       

      Btw, I am currently using InDesign CS5 and writers are using trial for InCopy CS6.
