when i apply a character style to one bit of text, another section also receives the same style.
the text i want to change (has a style applied but i want to change that):
when i click the new style:
as you can see the new style is applied to the preceding words as well. when i select the text that changed on it's own and try to change it back to it's correct style, it changes the original selection back too.
i have tried erasing the offending text and rewriting - the same thing still happens. i have no paragraph styles in this document, and you can see the character styles have worked well up to this point. just this one pesky line (so far).
i'm at a loss of what to do next. i can't think of how these characters are linked.
