      Using Adobe In Design CS 5.5, is it possible to bring a character style or paragraph style FROM SOME OTHER document into a different document?  THANKS!

          OOPS !  Here it is:

           

          You can import paragraph and character styles from another InDesign document (any version) into the active document. During import, you can determine which styles are loaded and what should occur if a loaded style has the same name as a style in the current document. You can also import styles from an InCopy document.

          1. In the Character Styles or Paragraph Styles panel, do one of the following:
            • Choose Load Character Styles or Load Paragraph Styles in the Styles panel menu.
            • Choose Load All Text Styles in the Styles panel menu to load both character and paragraph styles.
          2. Double-click the InDesign document containing the styles you want to import.
          3. In the Load Styles dialog box, make sure that a check mark appears next to the styles you want to import. If any existing style has the same name as one of the imported styles, choose one of the following options under Conflict With Existing Style, and then click OK:
            Use Incoming Style Definition
            Overwrites the existing style with the loaded style and applies its new attributes to all text in the current document that used the old style. The definitions of the incoming and existing styles are displayed at the bottom of the Load Styles dialog box so that you can view a comparison.
            Auto-Rename
            Renames the loaded style. For example, if both documents have a Subheading style, the loaded style is renamed “Subheading copy” in the current document.

            Open the paragraph style or character style panel menu and use the Load Styles command.
