Hi, Maxwell:

I'd suggest a slight variation on Clint's suggestion:

Select the affected range of text, open the character designer, click
the Commands button, choose Set Window To As-Is, THEN disable Change
Bars and click apply. The Designers pick up text attributes from the
selection; setting all to as-is first, is a precaution to retain all
local formatting - applied with or without tags - in the selection.
