Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

I'm trying to build a new template for a project, but am also trying to copy over some paragraph styles from the old template to save some time. In the original doc I'm breaking the link to the style, cleaning it up, copying it over to the new template, then setting up a new pgh style (trying to clean things up). However every time I do this and try to make a new style, it's including all this junk in there about paragraph borders and shading, even though those are NOT turned on at all. See pics for what I mean. It's driving me nuts, and I just want CLEAN STYLES, Y'ALL!! Anyone ever seen this?

Re: Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

What's more... when I have a style in the old document, and literally just copy that text into my new document, the shading crap appears. It does NOT appear when I try to make a PGH style of the exact same text in the OLD document. GAH!!

Hi Emily: Yes, this did come up on the forum about a year ago. I think it was a corrupt file (though I may be misremembering). Try saving it as an IDML file, closing and reopening.

Re: Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

Hi Barb, thanks. That didn't seem to do it. Also, if I open a new document, copy in the style from the old template, then check the style that copied over, it's added all the border/shading crap into the style. So it seems like it may be my entire program???

 

Might try a clean install, as much of a pain as that will be. Unless someone has another idea?

Hi Emily:

 

In that case, you want to rebuild your preferences/cache. See: https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-indesign-rebuilding-preferences-cache/. Let us know if that helps.

Re: Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

Welp. Did a clean install (had to hunt down the old download link to get the same version, GRRR, thanks Adobe). Didn't solve it. Rebuilt prefs (used link instructions above). Didn't solve it. At the end of my rope! 

 

Any other suggestions? Thanks for all your help so far.

Re: Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

And again, for what it's worth. I tried mimicking this process in the newest version of ID (I have to use an older one for my team project). It does the same behavior as in the old version. 

 

I did just try to open and old file and tinker around copying styles, and it doesn't seem to have the same problem. It's just the new files I create. I think I've noticed this issue before but I wasn't creating important style sheets at the time, so I just ran with it to get the project done. Anyway, still losing my mind, but might take that old file and build off it instead. We'll see.

Re: Paragraph Styles including paragraph border and paragraph shading even when they are turned off.

Hiya!
Just piping in to say I experience this same issue. I have noticed it happening on InDesign 2020 across multiple computers and even Adobe accounts - I have changed jobs and received new Adobe logins, plus whole new computers etc and the issue persists. I've voted for this issue on the bug report page too.
