Select style on paragraph style: Alt click on that style to remove override
Thanks for the reply but I didn't explain myself properly...
I have a para that I have applied, say, tracking to. Before I applied the tracking to the para it was perfect and as per the para-style without a +.
When the Tracking is applied you get the + and the whole para then goes to colours strike-through text, to show that there is something changed or applied to this para/character and it is not as the 'style'.
It is the InDesign appliation that is applying this as a visual aid I guess but I don't want the visual aid turned on...
So how do I turn it off??
Yes is a Indesign Preference.
Edit>Preferecne>Composition>Custom Tracking/Kerning, from there you can turn of.
That's not the normal appearance for an InDesign file. I've never see that kind of markup.
It appears that a third-party plugin might have been installed on the customer's computer. (You can show Track Changes in a normal installation of InDesign, but it can only be viewed in the Story Editor, not in Layout View, which is what your illustration shows.)
@Salah, at first I thought it was the Preferences setting but that simply places a highlight on the tracked/kerned text.
Yes Steve, first i think it's track and kern before he is attached screen shot, but after i see shot it's something other from my expectation.
Hi Pickory, (and all replies)
Pickory, you have solved the problem with the script. It works fine in CS6.
What I am just wondering though is where did it come from on just this job/file? Is it that someone is running the script and left it turned on when sending me the file so it 'works' here too... and I need the script to turn it off?
(You can see I'm not used to scripts much!)
Thank you again for finding me the answer.
If you are trying to restyle all the text and you want to get rid of overrides, try using Find/Change to find the style inthe Find Format section and repalce with the same style in the Change Format section. That should remove the local overrides (the + signs), but it probably won't resolve the tracking changes markup. Running through .idml might do something for that, though. See Remove minor corruption by exporting
Peter's suggestion is correct with one addition. This tip only works if you choose "Change All" not Find, then Change or Find and Change. Strange requirement.
