Hi Linda

Is the problem that paragraphs don't have the right paragraph tag? For example, 
have you got a heap of headings that have been tagged with Body and then 
overridden to look like headings? If so, you can use search and replace to fix 
at least some of it.

1.       Use FM's copy special to copy the correct paragraph tag

2.       use Framemaker's search to find the wrong ones, by searching by its 
font settings, then

3.       use the Change "by pasting" option to apply the right paragraph tag.

Hope this helps

Subject: Way to apply style to * paragraphs

FM 12 (unstructured)

I'm working with a large book from a client (66 chapters, 2500+ pages) that has 
numerous paragraphs that show an * next to the style name.

>From what I've seen, and of course, I've not looked at every page of every

Before doing that cleanup (with plug-ins and scripts), I'd like to get all the 
styles properly applied to each paragraph. Does anyone know of an automated way 
to do this?
