Hi,

I am designing a Journal in InDesign with over 50 articles. All the articles are done with MS Word with footnotes etc. After placing about 45 articles I found that in some placed articles the fonts have changed in certain pragraphs. Since I noticed this at the tail end, I did some experiments and placed the next article with the option "Redefine InDesign style" selected and the exact fonts were placed. But to my surprise there are 90 errors in the already placed 45 articles.

How come InDesign change the structure of the previous 45 articles when I am placing the 46th Article?

How can I avoid this?

Hi

 

What are the style names that were already in the InDesign document? What are the style names in the Word file? Does the Word file have any overrides?

 

Please show screen shots of:

  • your dialog for your import options when you choose File > Place
  • your Paragraph and Character Style panels with an insertion point in a paragraph with an "error" ?
