A problem that occurs with text import from Word into InDesign 5.5 is that non-hyphenated text in Word also does not hyphenate in InDesign, even if import options are set to keep InDesign features. In InDesign CS3 this was never a problem.
Can I do something about that?
The right features yield after once clicking the style name in the Paragraph styles dialogue box, but it seems a bug to me.
I can't really follow what you're saying.
Have you got any screenshots?
My problem is familiar to the one described in http://forums.adobe.com/message/4291899#4291899.
Styles creep over from Word, even if InDesign styles tell the text to be different.
In my case hyphenation creeps over from Word: there text is not hyphenated. Imported text does not fit into the narrow columns, which it will do when hypenated.
The screenshot shows a not-hyphenated word in paragraph style 'Opt+Num 2'. That style shows a '+', indicating that it is not a pure style. Clicking once on the style name will make the text hyphenate. Option-clicking it will too, but then also the semobold text will disappear.
I don't feel much like clicking every paragraph marked with a '+'.
