    Why aren't font attributes preserved when pasting?

    rpitcairn Level 1

      I have a text file in Text Edit, with the text formatted with italic, bold, colored font. When I copy and paste into a TE document, then the formatting is preserved. When I do the same in InDesign most of the formatting is lost. Only font color retained.

      I have set the Preferences for the clipboard to retain attributes and styles, nonetheless this is happening. I am using Times New Roman as the font so I think it should work. Any suggestions?
