Most certainly. Use the Copy Special function to pick up any of a Paragraph, Character or Table Format in one document and then use Paste to apply it in another. Note: the style will come in an as an override and you need to add it to the appropriate Catalog using the corresponding Designer.

Can't you use Import > Formats? Or does that only bring in the paragraph tag formatting & not the tag name itself? I forget since I never use it much ;>)

Wow, that worked really well. Simple solution, but not obvious to me.

Thank you!
