Hello Frame Gurus, I'm rather new to the list so please bear with me.
I have a book containing 12 files. Over time (starting before I ever worked with these files), each file's paragraph style sheet has been modified so that now the book's styles are a sea of inconsistency. Using Paragraph Tools I can reduce the mess to what's actually in use and eliminate what I don't need. I still need to re-name/spec what remains more consistently. To get one file's formats into another, I know I could import paragraph formats to individual files. But I would have to re-create all the formats in one document first (even though they already exist, spread throughout several documents). Will this give the same result as if a single merged style sheet had been applied to all files in the book? Is there another (more effective/efficient/reliable) way? Anticipating your wisdom.... Karen
