"Clear Overrides" in Paragraph Styles menu is needlessly picky
I can clear overrides only if the selected text is all in a single paragraph style. If I select multiple lines in different styles (which happens all the time in lists of text, calendar items, etc), the thing is always dimmed out.
This makes it needlessly tedious to get all the text back into a known set of styles, so that the styles themselves can be redefined and the text will update accordingly. (Example: taking formatted text to a new and differently-sized layout.)
It still is set up that way here in 2022! Very annoying, but good to be aware of - thought I was doing something wrong.
Maybe I will do EVERYTHING text related in INDD now.
Some kind of highlight overwrite would also be neat, to see where it doesn’t respect the style.
I can second that. it's is quite annoying, also counter intuitive in my opinion.
Why would you allow your defined text style to be altered that easily but so difficult to change back?
also defeats the purpose of defining a text style at the first place.
