    How do I change a root style?

    McShaman Level 1

      By default an install of InDesign had been set to use the US dictionary. Any document created used this dictionary by default... However in Australia we use the UK dictionary.


      I can change this in the [Basic Paragraph] paragraph settings, however this just shows up as an alteration to another style (obviously the documents default style). I want to be able to change the document's root style. I have tried to do this by modifying app.activeDocument.paragraphStyles[0] ([No Paragraph Style]) but I get a message saying "Invalid request on a root style".


      How do I modify this root style?
