    Default What the a?

    I am foolishly attempting my 8th book in Xara, this time in Pro+ and I really do not recall having this much aggravation in Designer Pro X. But it is too late to start over because I am about 1/3 through.

    I am copying and pasting text from Microsoft Word then applying Styles to the various elements.

    One Style, Commentary is incorrigible and driving me nuts. Every time I apply this style, which has no indent, the formatted text is indented. And when I modify the selection and select Update Style to Match, it does not update. It also shows an a next to the style in the styles drop down box.

    Can anybody explain why, even after I have updated this style that it still shows the a next to the style and that it WILL NOT retain my updates?

    Ah, OK, the Style I am having so many issues with was a Character Style in stead of a Paragraph Style. And as I recall, the problems with Character Styles go back to the introduction of Styles and has never been fixed.

    The speed of correct answers on TG is amazing.

    Without reading your second Post, I was going to suggest just that.

    But being second is not good enough.
