It is constantly frustrating that every year Adobe fails to update InDesign with external Style functionality.

 

It should be easy to define a set of Paragraph Styles and apply that as "Global Style" which can then be used 

across multiple InDesign files. Updating a "Global Style" would  then apply those Style changes to all affected docuements.

 

Currently this is not really possible and it's deeply annoying. I should be able to easily create a style that can be applied to any document I wish, and have any adjustments I make to that style automatically apply to all documents using it.

 

Obviously there could be a simple dialog box that

prompts when opening a document using a global Style that has been updated. I could be given a choice to update the document so that it is in-line with the style updates, or create a new style from the previous state, or keep all the current settings and not update the docuement to align with the updated style.

 

COME ON ADOBE. IT IS 2020.

GLOBAL STYLES. Without them updating documents in the same sort of style language is a massive pain, because any evolutions or changes to a style in one document immediately makes all other documents out of sync — this is a very common use-case problem deisgner run into,  and the fix to it is very strightforward.

If you think you are talking to Adobe Engineering or Product Management, this is not the forum / community for that.

 

Please meander over to https://indesign.uservoice.com/ to communicate any bugs or feature requests where it will get appropriate attention by the proper folks within Adobe.

 

Thanks.
