I am working with an indesign document that was made for me by a publisher.
Many different parts of the document have paragraph style " [Basic Paragraph]+ " where the "+" could be almost anything I guess. So I want to see just what the "+" involves (how different from regular [Basic Paragraph]), so I put the curser in the text, and in the paragraph style window the [Basic Paragraph]+ become highlighted. Now I want to see just what is the format for the [Basic Paragraph]+ , so I click on it in the style window. But... instead of showing me what exactly the [Basic Paragraph]+ style is, InDesign reformats the selected text back to [Basic Paragraph] (with no "+). How can I see what attributes have been changed in the [Basic Paragraph]+ style without just reformatting the text back to [Basic Paragraph] ? My ultimate goal is to get rid of all of the [Basic Paragraph]+ and make proper style names.
The + means an override.
Paragraph and Character Styles are really useful and it's worth learning how to use them:
If you hover the cursor over the style name you should see a popup with the overrides if not too many, or if the style name is selected you may see the overrides listed at the top of the panel.
