You don't say what you ARE doing, but it's supposed to be as simple as you remember: * Place an insertion pointer into an example of the paragraph format you want to change. * In the paragraph designer, choose the property page you want to change, and change things to suit. * Click "Update All." If you observe carefully, you'll see that the Update All button is near "Formats Tagged: <insertion point format name here>. The button can only display one line of text, so the meaning is a little unclear. This operation changes all the paragraphs in the current file that use the current format. No new name should be created, unless perhaps you're using File > Utilities > Create and Apply Formats. * Repeat the steps to make changes in other paragraph designer property groups. * Distribute the change format definitions to other files with File > Import > Formats. If you start the import from a single file, you import into that one file from one source file. If you start from a book window, with some or all files selected, import works from one file to all selected files. * TIP * There's no undo, but if you import into opened and saved files, you can revert them if the result isn't correct.
