What does slightly older mean? Did you get a missing font message when you
opened the file?
There is nothing about crossing platforms, or even versions, that should cause style definitions to change or not be honored. Are you actually working with the original file, or copying text from it and adding it to a new file?
Thanks for writing. I believe it was created on InDesign 5 and I'm using CS6. It did have some missing fonts but I've gone through and updated those missing fonts. I've gone through the styles and manually changed the fonts for capability.
@p.spier, do you mean copying text from a word file or from InDesign? What I'm doing is using a file created in InDesign CS5 on a PC as a guide to create a new edition of the journal. I'm importing text files from Word without any styles and trying to apply styles build into the InDesign's style sheet.
My apologies if I'm being unclear.
Copying from Word can either bring styles along or not, depending on your preference settings. Copying for ID will bring the style tagging along, but if the style is already defined in the destination document, the destination definition will take control and the text may change format to match that definition (this would be true if the word styles exist in the destination as well).
