I have a standing InD CS6 file that has all the styles mapped to XML tags for a particular series. When I need to export a file for that series to XML I use "Map Styles to Tags..." from the Structure palette, then I use the "Load..." button to select my standing InD file with the mapped styles.
After loading the mapped styles I just noticed that a style I had updated (changed the spanning from single to all columns) reverted back to the formatting that is in my mapping InD file. So, it appears that the styles don't simply get mapped to an XML tag, but rather the ENTIRE style (and all the formatting) is replaced from the document selected in the "Load..." button.
I don't want to use the styles from the standing document, JUST the mappings to the XML tags. Is there something I'm missing or is this just the way it works?
