We have updated our FM11 templates to include a new font. Is there a way to import the new font from the template to an existing doc to change the paragraph tags to the new font? Using Import > Formats > Paragraph Formats from the template to a chapter file in the existing doc does not seem to work.

FM stores only the font references in the catalogs. Have you checked the catalogs to see what the tags use for the font defintiions after import? If these did not change, then your import is failing.

I'm guessing you've already checked the two "while updating, remove …" options at the bottom of the Import formats dialogue?

Yep, I did; unfortunately the fonts are not updated. Thanks for your reply.

I think this is what the problem was in the template that I was trying to import from. I checked that, made updates, and could import Paragraph Formats to my chapter file, making the para tags in the chapter file all update to the new font. Thank you!
