I have a large document of 200 pages (plus) and I need to recreate the document with new fonts (OTF, etc). And before being able to copy the text from the old doc, I need to unlink all the Paragraph styles from it, so it won't mess my new document. I have a LOT of styles. Is it possible to do it without selecting manually all the text block by block?
Thanks for you help!
How about deleting all the styles from the source document. Select all of them from the style panel and delete, it will ask for replacing the styles with some other style, you can choose Basic Paragraph Style. This way the styling of the text would remain the same and you can then copy the text to another document.
Hi, I have tried that, but the styles change, and I need it to stay the same in order to be able to copy and paste in my new document. Thanks though!
Replace with No Paragraph Style instead of Basic Paragraph Style, seems to work in my testing. You can also try the "Break Link To Style" option in the flyout menu of the style panel.
Yes, that is what I do so far, the "Break Link To Style", manually for every text block. Takes time, but it's the only thing that works for now.
Did delete and replace with No Paragraph Style not work for you? When you choose this option there is a preserve formatting checkbox, you need to select it.
Oh, right! I had not seen that, thanks, will try!
