I'm running into a seemingly strange phenomenon with FM 9. I'm working with a lot of legacy documents that have formatting issues, and part of my workflow involves importing and replacing formats using a template formatted the way I wish it to be -- typically, with the very useful CleanImport plug-in.
In FM 9, I'm finding that when I do this import, I now get the unexpected side effect that the symbol used in the Autonumber Format area of the Paragraph Designer changes. For example: Original Format Font Unintentionally Modified Format Font ?\t Wingdings ?\t Wingdings ?\t Wingdings ?\t Wingdings I'm not sure how or why this changes. I have developed a workaround. I go to my source document, do a Global Update, Numbering Properties, for each of the paragraph formats in question, applying this to all paragraphs in the source document that have the individual tags in question. I am not changing the formats in any way, simply re-applying them. Then I re-import the paragraph and character formats to all of the remaining files, and then the paragraphs with these various "list bullets," for want of a better term, are all restored to normalcy. So it's not the end of the world, just an unwelcome extra step. Any ideas? Jim
