I have two paragraphs on a page in my InDesign document. The text size of both of them is 18pts. Now on investigating via script, when I access the pointSize field in both of the paragraphs (paragraph object dot pointSize), it returns 18.
But if I check via para.appliedParagraphStyle.pointSize, it returns 38.
Could anyone explain this behaviour, or what fundamental mistake I am making?
It may be that the paragraphStyle is set so the fontSize is expected to be 38pt by default but someone or something overrided the default setting and changed that value.
