No - for that, you need Interleaf... (ROFL) Seriously, John, what you are doing with para formats is correct for FrameMaker. If, say, you change a paragraph (or a character) format in one document within a book, there are two basic approaches: . If you keep all paragraph and character formats the same across a book (I prefer to, others don't), just import the required formats from the changed document to the remainder of the book using the File -> Import -> Formats command from the book window. . If you prefer to play safe, or don't have all paragraph formats synchronized across the book, save a separate copy of the document with the changed format(s), *delete* from it all but the changed formats, and then import them from that copy across the book, discarding the copy afterwards. -- Steve
