You'd be doing it the opposite way.
You assign an object style and that then triggers the Paragraph Style.
You can define an Object Style with a stroke around the border, and also call for the correct paragraph style within the Object Style definition.
What do you mean by grid?
Are these individual text frames? A table? Something else?
There may be a solution if we know how the ads are laid out.
When it comes to calling that correct paragraph style within the Object Style Definition, how can I do that?
Here is the actual example of the newspaper so you can visalize what I am trying to do
This is not going to be easy.
At the moment, the only way I see that you can do what you want is with anchored text frames. This will not be as simple as clicking to apply a paragraph style and definitely not just applying an object style.
Your design requires that the text for the premium ads be in their own rounded corner frame. That frame would then be anchored to the text flow.
This could be scripted, however.
I am entirely new to the Indesign forum.
The above request is possible through scripting.
I think better you create this request in Adobe Indesign Scripting Forum.
Wow! Mike's find is incredible!
And at $49.95 it will pay for itself in about half an hour.
How does one install the Demo?
You know, Thomas Silkjaer wrote a similar script back in August of 2009 and had it for free on his indesigning.net. But I cannot get that website anymore. It was discussed on indesignsecrets in 2009, also, but now the link doesn't work. I have a copy of it on my hard drive. Email me if you want me to send it to you.
Did Thomas's script do rounded corners? How?

Thank you for your help. This is actually what i specifically need!
Im still testing the demo version, but im sure that if everything goes as it seems I will eventually have to buy the plugin
Again, Thank you!
You are entirely welcome! I hope it goes well.
Since you are being helpfull, I am having this problem now, dont know if you can help. This problem comes as a result of everything working allright with your solution.
Is there a way to change different paragraph heads with their respective images (which they all differ for each of these paragraphs) at the same time.
In one newspaper there are around 200 different paragraph images that I have to manually insert at their respective places, where these respective places are individualized by a specific code.
Is there a plug-in or script that can automatically do this change?
If you need any more information, please let me know
Thank you very much in advance
Why not relink to a new folder full of images that are named the same way? Have you ever looked into the Links panel menu button and experimented with some of the utilities in there?

I think that I did not explain myself as I should have. The problem is not really related to links but more of a automatic replacement issue.
Every time I do this newspaper I include a new text information and the location of the Headers changes in every single case.
In the link, the blue paragraphs need to be replaced with the respective Header Icons that you see on top and everytime this location of the headers in the newspaper changes due to the different number of posts in each specific category. Now the problem is related on how to autoaticaly replace this string in blue with its respective header
thanks a lot in advace for all your help
