    Issues copying text including GREP styles

    Roy Marshall Level 1



      I have a text frame, that contains formatted text, using styles, and one particular para style contains a GREP style, making a certain word Bold and coloured.

      When I copy from this document into a new document that does not contain the styles, the para styles are brought in, but the GREP character style is not pulled in.

      If the receiving document DOES contain the character style, then all is good.

      Is this normal? I would have expected the character style that is attached to the Paragraph style to automatically be included in the target document.


      Is there a way around this? I would like to make it as fool proof as possible, but at the moment I need to make sure I have the Character style loaded before I paste.
