InDesign Paragraph Styles Not Functioning Properly [2017]

Hello,

My problem is that when I apply a paragraph style, it does not apply the proper effect.  For example,  I select text that is say Arial regular 12 pt grey and create a new style.  When I apply the style to a paragraph, the text becomes Arial Bold 12 pt green.  If I go into the style settings, the style is set at Arial Regular grey, but it appears as Arial bold in the document.  It doesn't seem to effect the size, just weight and color.

 

This is not happening with character styles, only paragraph.  I thought it was a bad font, but I've tried it with a couple of them and it is happening with all of them.

 

I've tried deleting preferences, restarting and opening a new file, but none worked.

 

PLEASE HELP...I HAVE A JOB DUE TODAY!

Thank you.

Have to checked to see if the "misbehaving" paragraph also has a character style applied? (Character Style attributes override those in the Paragraph Style.)

Thank you so much! This solved my problem after I went crazy trying to figure out what was happening. I hope your socks never fall down and your pillow is always cool to the touch.

1. Open your Character styles panel > select the paragraph and click None to remove any Character styles. Look at the bottom to see if any are being applied automatically.

2. Select your text and clear your overrides by clicking the Pilcrow at the bottom of the Paragraph styles panel.

3. Check your Paragraph style definition and post a screen shot of the definition if it still does not work.

If your Paragraph styles are based on a style that is green (check Basic Paragraph), that could also be the problem. Base them on No Style.
