    InDesign 5.5 Text layout problem--possible preference issue

    YizThisSew

      I do a lot of book layout and recently upgraded from InDesign CS3 to 5.5. I've encountered a problem when I'm editing the text layout

       

      When I make changes to one paragraph (i.e. change the spacing above or below a head or change leading in a particular paragraph), InDesign is automatically changing the word/letter spacing in the lines of the following paragraph. For instance, I added some space before a head. InDesign automattically shifted the spacing of words and letters in the first lines of the following paragraph instead of just shifting all of the text down. In another case I changed one word in a paragraph, and the letter/word spacing changed in the following paragraph.

       

      This is unacceptable and didn't happen in CS3. How can I turn off this "function" ?
