If the original is through a character and you insert an ENS after the character, it will cause the next nested style to fail. You'll need to change the definitions of the nested styles to be explicitly triggered by the ENS characters rather than what is triggering them now.
Thanks for your speedy reply.
There are enough instances of nested styles that we're trying to avoid explicit ENS characters at all cost. There will be so many of them to enter!
So ENS characters affect the resolution of nested styles even when they aren't used as delimiters in the nested style definitions? Is InDesign essentially looking for either the declared delimiter *or* an ENS character?
If so, is there any way that can be overridden?
Yes, that's how it works, and I don't think there's anything you can do about it.
The other approach would be to remove the nests altogether, replacing them with explicit calls on the character styles. I thought I saw some talk of a script that does just that, here in the forum in recent weeks.
I'm in a meeting right now and don't have time to search myself.
Drat. Thanks what I feared.
The explicit calls to the character styles -- sounds interesting, but I'm not finding that thread. If you can retrieve it quickly, I'd much appreciate a link.
Thanks again for your help.
