Is there a way to capture the style list from an InDesign document? I woul like a list of the formatting for each style I created in a particular document. My boss wants me to recreate the look of an InDesign document in Word (yes i know and feel free to roll your eyes). I'm the only one with InDesign in my office, everyone else has MS Office. So he wants a template that Word users can use that will still have the look and feel of our marketing materials.
Not sure why this would get an eye roll. I do this all the time and its actually easier on word than indesign. At least i think so. I make the templates in word from scratch. what exactly are you not confortable doing from word?
this course helped me:
another thing you can do is take your indesign layout. export to .pdf. From acrobat you can save as a word document. Now, acrobat does not keep the styles data from indesign. So, you would need to open the document from word and name styles as you work your way down the document.
The issue is not re-creating the styles in Word, I can do that. I'm looking for a way to print or capture a list of the formatting for each style. I know in Word that you can print list of styles used in the document, such as the one pictured below. I would like to do this same thing in InDesign.
Yes I saw that, but its 7 years old. Has anyone tried this with CC 2021?
I have not, but if you post the issue(s) you experienced when you used it someone may be able to help your get it working.

Go on, be the first! You're not going to break anything. Be adventurous!
so........ did you get it to work?
Worked for me in 2020—I exported a tab delimited text file and opened it in Numbers. 111 columns.

This worked for me and I'm a total scripting noob! Thank you for this link. It was posted in another thread, but the link was broken.
Hints for other scripting noobs like me...
