All of a sudden, when I change the style of selected tect in the Paragraph Style window it changes the text to the correct style, but the color is changed to Blue and it is underlined. I can then manually change the color back to what it's supposed to be (usually black) and kill the underlining, but this severely slows down production time over the long term and is very annoying. What is going on?!?
Check if there not a character style applied on your text.
There is always a style applied. My problem is that when I select one of the other Paragraph Styles items to change it the text goes Blue and underlined. I have examined each of the style definitions and changing the color to Blue and underlining it is not in there. I can't figure this out.
As I wrote in my first answer, there is actually a character style (named hyperlink): we can see that in your screenshot.
It sounds like a Style override indicator - a useful facility but it can be turned off. A screen shot would help.
I see. What should be in the screen shot?
The capture of the screen showing the issue.
Attached find a screen shot. Thanks for your help.
I suspect you unknowingly have the hyperlink Character Style applied.
Show your Character Style panel in a screen grab.
You can see the Character style applied in the Control panel at top.
Thanks for your help, but this doesn't seem to be it. I may try recreating the Paragraph Styles from scratch and hope the problem isn't repeated.
You have underline on.
Yes. That happens when I select a particular Paragraph style. That shouldn't be happening. That – and the color change – is my issue.
Your problem is not the applied Paragraph Style, it is the applied Character Style.
Absolutely. I'm beginning to straighten this out now. Thank you so much.
