I cannot copy or export the long "based on" information part of the styles panel. Is there a script or other way to do that? Things happen unexpectedly when reset to base that I need to figure out for multiple complex documents.

Thank you Lucas and Brian. I suspected a big script was going to be needed for this. I feel Adobe ought to include getting this info in the program and not make this very necessary information so hard to flush out. That needs to go to the Requested Features -- the most ignored portion of the support community, no doubt.

Don't know if this does it for you, I don't know that it copies the style, but it definately shows dependencies. Great for when you inherit a job.

A similar thread appeared last week. I recommended this one: http://kasyan.ho.ua/indesign/export/export_styles_description_settings_to_csv.html
