Hello!

When importing a Microsoft Word file to InDesign, all words become superscript text.

  1. How did you define the paragraph styles. 

  2. You use fonts which are not available for InDesign. Those are probably MS fonts as MS installs a bunch of fonts inside their Program Folders, so that other programs cannot find them. But you can move them out to common places, where all other applications are able to use them.

Could also be caused by having a manual override or character style for superscript set as the default, and as the text comes into InDesign, the override gets applied to everything.

 

When you select any part of the text, does a + sign appear next to the paragraph style in the Paragraph Styles panel? The + indicates that a manual override was applied. 

 

Also, you can locate overrides by turning on the Style Highlighter, which will highlight overrides in a blue/green color.

See https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/paragraph-character-styles.html (Manual Overrides toward the bottom of the webpage).

 

Style Highlighter is labled A. It's the [a+] button in the upper right of the Paragraph Styles panel.  You can also see the + after Heading 2 in the list of styles.Style Highlighter is labled A.
