I'm working on a new InDesign document using style sheets, and when I change a word size, font or color, it highlights the word. I can't make the highlight thing go away. Looked through Preferences, Type, Object, etc. Help!

A better solution would be, not to make any style overrides at all. Use character styles. That is correct work.

I agree. I do use character style sheets (and teach students how to use them) but occasionally there's a one-time aberration needed, like a big exclamation point. I don't want or need to create a character style for it.

What do you loose, if you would create a style instead of a manual override?

>> a one-time aberration needed

Правила как раз созданы для того, чтобы их нарушать.

 

Where there's a rule, there's gotta be a way around it. For "one-time" is not so big "error".

If every time there was a one-word  change and I made a new style for it I would end up with a Character Styles palette that's too long and confusing.

On other hand needs to cut all the strange onetime overrides. 

 

+ You can use folders of styles and not fear to have many styles
