    Problems with Default Paragraph Styles

    Settings for InDesign CS6 Level 1

      I've used InDesign since the program was launched and have loved it. (Before this a used PageMaker since version 1 (dec 1985).

      But since a couple of months back I have a problem with the ID 2015 CC and it seems hard to solve: My default paragraph style will not work. The links goes to wrong fonts, and even the wrong colors.

      I have tried to delete the preference files, but can not find them. In the past, they were at a place where they were easy to find, but now it seems as if my OS X or Adobe does not have a folder for the setup files.

      Can someone help me?

      If you want to contact me direct, please send a mail soonest to   <Personal information forbidden in Adobe forums.>

          Resetting Preference files can be done when first opening InDesign.


          Close and relaunch InDesign, and IMMEDIATELY hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences. You must be extremely fast on the keyboard (if you don’t see the confirmation prompt, you were too slow).


          Additionally you could try using the "Reset to Base" function located when you open up a paragraph style.


          All the best,
