    Error with styles when using Alternate Layout

    d.bishop Level 1

      I'm trying to use the new Alternate Layouts function in CS6 to create a template for both 8-1/2"x11" and A4 sized pages. While trying to create the alternate layout, I receive an error that says, "One or more styles were not mapped. Cannot create a mapped style when one of the source styles is based on another source style."


      I think this means that InDesign doesn't like that some of our styles are based on others - for example, Figure references are based on Body text, with bold-italic-centered changes. I have changed all the paragraph styles to be based on "[No Paragraph Style]" instead of being based on other styles, yet I still get the error. What should I do? Thanks.
