I work on a Mac in Pages and I wrote a novel. I exported each chapter into Word and now I am placing them into Indesign. I set up a paragraph style with the font Baskerville and when I Chapter 1, an override (the +) appears keeping the italics Helvetica Neue! Now, I could clear the override and change it manually to Baskerville italic, but then I'd have to do that each time throughout my manuscript! There are quite a few italics throughout my manuscript--the name of a ship, for example. There has to be a way to change the override to Baskerville, doesn't there?

You could set up a character style, using Baskerville Italic and run a Find-Change, like this:

@scout214pack It sounds like a character style with the italics remaining in Helvetica. Did you use custom mapping when you placed the Word document into InDesign? That will help you control the conversions.

Than you. I don't know what word mapping is, but now I am going to find out!
