    Nested style not staying applied

    mattaca Level 2

      In InDesign CS4 (6.0.6) I'm having an issue with nested styles reverting to the main paragraph style. The nested style is set to apply through one period, but it is randomly switching back to the font used in the paragraph style. Some paragraphs have the nested style applied and others do not (see attached).  Stranger still, the Paragraph Styles panel does not show any overrides to the style (nor is Clear Overrides an option from the flyout) but if I option click the style, the number will return to its proper nested state.


      I thought it might be a font conflict, but I've already checked the editors machines (we have an InCopy workflow) as well as my own and no one has any alternate fonts in use.


      Is this a known bug? Has anyone had this issue before? We've had this issue pop up randomly before but never this close to a press date so usually just option click even though we don't know how it's happening. We're a little freaked out. Any help would be appreciated.
