Why do some paras retain the old format after updating all in Para Designer please?

Using Frame 10 on Win 7 Pro

I am trying to change the font and color for a few paragraph tags with Paragraph Designer.

Most of the paragraphs change OK when I click Update All, but there are odd paras that don't change with the rest. For example, trying to apply changes to Table Text will change some cells but not others even in the same table. I find that rather impossible to believe.

Similarly, for some of my numbered lists the change affects the actual number digit correctly (tested by changing color parameter), but the text retains the old font and color

I can change the offending tags outside of the Para designer, but I suspect they will just revert to the old style if I close and reopen the chapter.

Any help please?

Thanks

Any chance that they have Character Formats applied?

Hi

Well, I can't pretend to know how or why, but it seems the default font in the character designer was set to the old font.

Thank you very much

Phil

I have the same problem. I created a new style with Arial Unicode font. I am applying this style to a table which originally has different font. I apply this using Paragraph Designer> Global update Options> then selecting all properties and then the tags. But I just get 1 cell changed. Some times 2-3 cells. It's not consistent.

I am using FM17 but I am following an old tutorial at:

Anybody help.
