    Script to remove overrides

    jay fresno Level 2

      Does anyone know of a script that can remove paragraph overrides from text that is selected with the Type tool?


      I have many paragraphs that have nested styles. InDesign does not implement the nested style untl I select the paragraph and Alt-click the style in the Paragraph Styles panel to remove the override. After that, the paragraph has the correct formatting.


      This is hugely time-consuming because I have to place many such paragraphs in a very long document.


      I don't want to remove overrides throughout the whole document, just those paragraphs that are selected. That way, I can place a bunch of text into InDesign, select the text and remove the overrides, before moving it into place on the layout.


      If anyone can help, it would be a tremendous relief to me.
