Copying text from source doc results in default Minion Pro

When copying text from a source document to a target document, both using the same style and character sheets, the font, instead of being Museo Sans, defaults to Minion Pro. The character style sheet on both is set to None. I've closed down InDesign, re-launched without any files open, and the default font that displays is the correct Museo Sans. This is really aggravating and wondered if anyone might have an answer. 

 

In anticipation 

Michael

Did you try to import instead of copying? If you just copy it will use your default font when pasting. You can change your default font, but it will not hold any bold, italics or different type sizes.

Thanks Jumpenjax.

 

The default font on both documents is Museo Sans 300 and, yes, copy/pasting not importing. Maybe I shoud try importing instead.

Copy/Paste from InDesign document to InDesign document (which is how I understand your description), should retain the styling, as long as you don't invoke the Paste Without Formatting command, intentionally or inadvertently.

 

Have you tried a preferences reset?

Paste without formatting – definitely check that one. Thanks John.

Tried Paste Without Formatting and it still pastes as Minion Pro. I'm beginning to wonder whether it might be corrupted  preferences.

Hi Michael,

if you type in doc A using that paragraph style do you get "Museo Sans" ?

If you type in doc B using that paragraph style do you get "Museo Sans" ?

 

Hm. Make a sample of both docs available so that we can see into this case.

Best put them on Dropbox or a similar service and post the download links.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Client is expecting an urgent job right now but will send sample pages from both docs via Dropbox as soon as I'm finished.

 

Many thanks once again.

I should also say that I copy dragged a text box into the source doc and it came in as Minion Pro.

I would check both documents to see if they have matching "Basic Paragraph" Styles... separate from your other defined Styles.

FIrst thing I thought of.

Basic Paragraph Style is a trap. To avoid the trap do all three of these things:

  1. Never apply Basic Paragraph Style to any text.
  2. Never edit Basic Paragraph Style.
  3. Never base any styles you use on Basic Paragraph Style.

Hi Scott and thanks.

 

That's interesting about Basic Paragraph Style. I tend to create my own Body text but based on [No Paragraph Style]. I'm interested in why you're so vehement and call it a trap. Strong words.
