I'm not sure what you are asking here. You post is riddled with links back to itself and is making no sense to me. Could you pehaps come back to the Web and look it over?
Sorry Peter. On behalf of the stupid Jive forums, I do apologize. Everywhere in my post where I wrote [None], it was jived up a little and changed to a link. (I've only got Internet access during breaks -- a self-imposed firewall that allows me to actually get some work done.)
The post shoudl have read:
Am I the last to realise that, with text selected, clicking on [None] is different from right-clicking on [None] and selecting "Apply [None]" in the character palette?
Let me explain: Say you have some text selected. The text has a character style applied called "Superscript", whose only attribute is to apply superscript.
Now, with that text selected, if you click on [None] the result is that [None] is applied and all formatting is lost.
But, if you right-click on [None] and choose "Apply [None]" from the context menu, [None] is applied but formatting is NOT list. Effectively this is the equivalent of choosing "Break link to style" in the flyout menu of the character palette.
Curious to know if you've come across that that distinction before?
thank you for that observation.
I wasn't aware of that. Yes it's true: by right-clicking on [None] you'll do the same as applying the character style [None] scriptwise (as Peter Kahrel pointed out in the Scripting forum):
Yes, thanks very much. I was also unaware of the behavior. Very interesting, and useful.
File this under “you learn something new every day.”
I feel a tweet coming on.
I didn't mean anything in particular. I'm not seeing what I think you are describing, which is to apply a style, then right click the name of a second style and apply it, leaving attibutes of both styles applied. To do that I have to first right click and apply the None, then apply the second style (and of course, as far as ID is concerned, only the second style is applied).
