We often have to import text into InDesign from Word docs. We place the docs (rather than copying and pasting) in order to preserve italics, bold text, etc. As it is now, we have to select all the text and set each element separately - leaving the Font Style field blank - in the Character Palette.
It would save a lot of time, if we could set up a Paragraph Style without specifying the Font Style, (leaving it blank), which overrides the formatting we are trying to preserve. Is this possible?
You posted this in the wrong forum, this is the Captivate, not the InDesign forum. I'm not the moderator, so I cannot move your question. If it is urgent, could you please post in this forum:
Thanks so much for letting me know. It is the first time I've used a
Forum, so am glad to know that you will let folks know when they need
to make changes. I will try to figure it out right away!
