Using Indesign Cs5.
I'm going to import loads of incopy-text that has already ben placed on other layouts. The problem is that these texts contains some paragraph styles overrides that I do not want to include in the new document.
Question: is there some way to tell indesign to automatically clear paragraph style overrides?
No, I want it to be done automatic.
Reading through that article, it appears that added styles will be ignored with certain exceptions that in turn are overrideable in ID. But I am working in the blind here.
I know there are GREP routines you can use to set chosen paragraph styles to any other and it is fast to do. Search the forum for these.
Because I work by myself and don't receive anything but funky Word or text documents that I fully set in ID, I haven't faced what you are.
Hopefully someone who does use IC will come along to actually help you.
