'Load Paragraph styles' does not work as expected
In InDesign, if you 'Load Paragraph styles', any Paragraph styles with the same names get updated, and any text that has those paragraph styles applied change appearance.
In Illustrator, this doesn't happen. It ignores the imported styles as it already has styles of that name. There is no 'import options' to able to change this behaviour.
This is clearly a BUG, not an idea.
I have the same problem. Two docs, same style names, but defined with different fonts. When I load styles from one into the other, the styles should update with updated fonts. They don't. Attached are 2 files that demonstrate the problem.
