Yes, it would work for that but there is a much more direct approach that I think is a lot easier. Just make a special file (consider it a template since it need not contain any text content, although I always recommend using the body of template files to self-document the template's design and features) whose Paragraph Catalog contains *only* the styles you want to import. Simple and much more foolproof than poking around in the MIF code, IMO. Note that this is basically the same as the "third variant" technique that Grant Hogarth suggested in his post earlier today. (I am really embarassed to have forgotten that approach when I posted my reply in this thread last evening, since I've been using the technique for at least 6 or 7 years. Must be an early sign of what's-his-name's disease...)
