    Changing values in spec window changes copy in doc

    susan mazur Level 1

      Hi Guys,


      I've asked this question before, but alas, I cannot remember the fix... and it's something very simple!


      I have my spec windows for type, paragraphs, etc. open on my other monitor. I'm changing the "space after" value, but when I click and highlight that field, the value I'm entering, is changing the copy in my document.


      Example: I want to change my 0.125" Space After to 0.25". The cursor in my document is in the copy where I want to apply the change. I highlight the value in the Space After box and type in .25, but the actual copy in my InDesign doc changes to .25.


      As I said, I know this is a quick and easy fix, but for the life of me I can't remember what that is!
