Paragraph Style not honoured when placing plain text files.

Recommended Posts

This is driving me nuts. Placing a text file into a text frame while having paragraph style selected gets the text placed with the No Style attributes applied. Or maybe it is more accurate to. say they are amended to the chosen Paragraph style. I also cannot remove these by hitting the reapply button on the Text Styles pane. (the little circular arrow)

Perhaps related to this, but when I paste from Email or from a note in a PDF (acrobat) the text is formatted, even if the original was not? I have to explicitly paste as unformatted text. This is different from indesign and does not make much sense to me.

Hi Old Bruce,

I'm not quite seeing the behaviour you are. I'm finding the text is having the Text Style applied that was selected, but then having an additional formatting to change the font (from what the text style was set to use) to what I had previously used in a different frame. I can just use Reset Formatting button in the Text Styles Panel to correct this though.

Are you able to record a video showing the behaviour you are getting?

I have one but it displays what you are describing. I honestly don't think that should be considered either normal or acceptable behaviour.
