I expect that changing the font size in a paragraph style definition would change all paragraphs tagged with that style throughout the document. That does not appear to be the case! Publisher 1.7.0.292 Mac This is so basic that I guess it is me that just doesn't know which button to push. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

That is how it works for me with the one caveat: The font size can be over-ridden by a Character Style.

The [No Style] style isn't actually a style and as such cannot be changed en masse.

Are your two Paragraph styles based on two different styles?

It should work as you expect. Can you provide a sample .afpub file that shows it working otherwise? If so, perhaps we can point out something you did to cause that, or help determine that there's a bug.

This also assumes that you did not override the style in the text by selecting text and adjusting the size directly.  If you did, you will need to reset such text to use the style.

Thanks, everyone for your feedback.

I attached a couple of screenshots to try and illustrate my confusion. I seem to remember InDesign had the + after a style name and you just option clicked to update the text. Looks like Publisher has more options and it is not intuitive how they all interrelate.

I will read the help section again very slowly - I'm sure this will be another one of those - it's easy once you know how to do it features.

You can usually do that by using the strange little arrow to the right of the Style's name

I think that "update" button changes the style to match the selected text.  I think you want the circled "T" instead.

I'm still finding the switch from Adobe a bit of a challenge, sure it will get easier as I figure out Affinities little quirks.
