I do not see that behavior. Here is what I just did: I opened a container file and double-clicked a text inset.
I opened the text inset. I selected a paragraph changed the paragraph tag definition to use a completely different font. (Arial to Times New Roman) I updated the tag. I added some random characters to the end of the graf to make sure the changed Inset was in effect. I saved the inset. Back in the container file I double-clicked the inset and selected Update Now. My container file contains the same paragraph tag as the inset file. The two fonts now disagree for this tag in the two files. The font in the container file won. I created a new tag in the inset The container file does not have this tag at all. The tag appeared as I defined it in the inset and the container file did not change it. Does that help? If you want the container file to control the formatting, make sure the Inset and the container use exactly the same tag names.

Has anyone noticed that unless you choose plain text, the imported text inset will have the formatting of the document that you are importing FROM and not the one into which the text inset is going? I'm sure it used to work in Frame 6. Wow, it sure makes my life difficult!! Could someone else test and see if my findings are correct?? Much appreciated. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Joan Robins Consulting, Inc. joan at joanrobins.com ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as jlight at pillardata.com.
