    How to clear paragraph styles from text imported from Word?

    it@caotti.net Level 1

      I'm trying to create a user manual and I'm using a template for it that has its own paragraph styles set up.

       

      I'm using InDesign CS6 because I'm using Markzware's PDF2ID plugin that I bought for that version. I used it to bring in instructions from users who did their work in Word and saved to PDF.

       

      I just want to take their work and re-format it to match the template's paragraph styles. But when I select their text and choose a new paragraph style, it doesn't change.

       

      I've tried to use the "Clear Overrides" button, but nothing happens.

       

      I found a website that suggested using some keyboard shortcuts to clear formatting, but they didn't work either.

       

      What am I missing?
