PROBLEM: i have 2 paragraph styles in Indesign "NAME" and "INFO".
When i select the the name of the product the NAME paragraph style highlights, ensuring me that it is following the correct style.
When i select the info, in a separate text box the INFO paragraph style highlights which of course lets me know it is properly styled.
When i go to the NAME style and change the font style ONLY the info text changes HOWEVER if i can change the font size the named text will change to whatever i set it on (in the same paragraph style, regardless if the text is selected or not).
i do not understand how this is. i have cleared the overrides and verified that they are both in completely separate text boxes and for whatever reason this is happening.
please enlighten me
Sounds to me like one style is based on the other, and you are changing an attribute common to both.
Yes you are correct that was it, geese my brain is fried. thank you so much.
