I am importing an 80 page doc from Word to Indesign CC in a templatized document. I flowed the text in and when I try to apply my paragraph styles, it will only change it to half of the paragraph style. It appears that a character style (italicized) is overriding part of my paragraph style. The only way I can change it, is if I right click on the paragraph style and "Clear override" or "Clear all". But that is just a local override and will take forever to go through all my text. How can I make a global change to all text & avoid this problem when importing from Word in the future?
Here is what I have been doing...
1. Selected my import options during file> place : without formatting and with formatting. Same issue with both.
2. Gone in into the character styles panel menu and selected none, I still have to local override my paragraph style for each group of text I want to change
3. Tried to select all my text then change the character style to none. That only changes the formatting but doesn't implement the entire paragraph style.
